“Via Ad Lucem” (meaning “way to the light” in Latin) is a 4 track EP that combines black metal and ambient music over its 24 minute running time.
Its aim was to not only experiment with how two vastly different styles be combined, but to portray the musical content in a natural sounding way. “Viam Ad Lucem” boasts a deliberately raw production sound, focusing on feeling and emotion rather than musical accuracy. It is supposed to capture what a musician truly sounds like whilst performing music, before the beauty of modern music technology comes into play.
In contrast to this concept, the EP will only be available in digital format as a "name your own price" download. A physical release on Winterblast Halls is not planned.
