s_haw_n This album found me moments ago - had i known about it shortly after the release this would have been at the top of my AOTY list for 2017, without question.
There is some intangible quality to this record. Very few artists strike me as this composition does. Bravo.

I am forever changed 🤘 Favorite track: Homecoming.

Justin Approaching a year after its release date, I still have Futility Report on heavy rotation. Everything about this album is exquisitely crafted. All the melodies have an addictive quality. The sound is as black, sharp, and smooth as obsidian, and the atmosphere it creates is at once ancient and modern, like a curse of old that was forgotten, but never went away. Favorite track: Black Silent Piers.

How can a band be so fearless, self-assured, creative and fully-formed on their first full length release? WHITE WARD, the young Ukrainian formation, are seriously impressive and their debut album is an instant classic! Listeners are liable to fall in love with this prodigious offering from the first note, captivated by the jazzy vibe, the heart-breaking guitar melodies, the fantastic drumming, the subtle electronics and the seamless use of saxophone. These audaciously written, deeply melancholic soundscapes of night-time urbanity have the touch of genius.

Furious and intimate, exciting and intriguing, "Futility Report" stems from a thoroughly modern vision, an innovative interpretation of Extreme Music which breaks down established codes whilst simultaneously deep -rooted in the obscure history of Black Metal.

"Futility Report" - or the metallic version of ULVER’s legendary "Perdition City" - is a new form of Dark Music, a serious piece of Art far removed from usual clichés and a significant forward step.

Embark on a uniquely fascinating journey and let yourself be enchanted by an ambitious entity with designs on your soul!
