Carach Angren - Where the Corpses Sink Forever

Carach Angren's new album Where the Corpses Sink Forever has been released on their Season of Mist Bandcamp page. This is symphonic black metal. Musically it is dark, romantic and complex, but not overindulgent like many other in that genre. Lyrically it is storytelling time, horror stories that is. As DemiGodRaven says in the No Clean Singing review:
Imagine if you and your friends were out on a camping trip and decided to sit around telling ghost stories. As the night goes on, the stories get worse and worse as each of you tries to one-up the others in the horror factor contained within each. Stories of war, suicide, cannibalism, almost everything is fair game. Carach Angren’s latest release, Where The Corpses Sink Forever, is like an audio version of that.
Here's a review from Angry Metal Guy. While the vocalist Seregor is generally easy to understand, reading the lyrics adds an extra dimension to this album. They are not available on the Bandcamp, but you can find them at The Metal Archives.
