Black Narcissus once again brings a wealth of haunting melodies and enchanting rhythms on their second album.The sound that the sympathetic duo managed to squeeze out of their minimalist instruments – consisting only of a drum and bass guitar – sounded so overwhelming and grand that it seemed almost unthinkable that a two-man formation could do this.
It is clear that Thomas Wuyts (drums) and Jesse Massant (bass) – just like for their first album Beyond The Whispers Of Common (2018) – also put passion and a lot of work into these nine tracks.
1. Unlike The Fire That Forged The Blade, I Remain Unkindled
2. Within The Splendor Of Her Light We Danced Endlessly
3. The Ninth Gate Part I
4. The Ninth Gate Part II
5. Black Shapes In The Grey Night
6. She Yields To None But Time
7. The Breathless Hour
8. There Be Dragons
9. In A Forest Of Nothingness I found Myself
