Noctivagant - The Sleep of Reason

The Sleep of Reason is an 8 track EP released in 2013 by the Russian atmospheric black metal duo, Noctivagant.

This is a cold yet elegant album lush with hypnotic and melodic layering. Noctivagant pay as much attention to ambiance and atmosphere as they do to slowly and carefully moving their isolation and despair driven compositions progressively along. A soothing sadness pervades The Sleep of Reason, one that seeps into the listeners being and provides an escape to another world, a world of desolate frost covered beauty.
