The bold debut EP from this blackened-atmospheric-drone duo is a 23 minute journey through dark and doomy corners of metal where even some of the most experimental bands fear to tread.

"Karmic Existence" dwells in a deep dubby headspace informed by 20th century minimalism, Lunar exploration, Buddhist spirituality, and psychedelic horrors of the band's own creation.

Strongly recommended for fans of Sunn O))), Nadja, Horseback, Locrian, L Monte Young, and Philip Jeck.

"Reality collapses in on itself, like an overwhelming experience with psychedelics or the actual end of the universe." -Black Metal and Brews (blackmetalandbrews.blogspot.com/2013/08/new-releases-from-acephale-winter.html)

"Fit for almost any modern-ish horror film." -Your Taste in Music Sucks (ytims.wordpress.com/2013/08/05/synsophony-karmic-existence/)
