Certainly NO 'sophomore slump' here on UVALL's much-anticipated second album! "OCTOBER TURNS... RUINED" presents a more Doomy atmospheric approach (with real live human drummer this time); and now intentionally featuring clearly strong influences from XASTHUR and San Francisco's LEVIATHAN (but with more blood-freezing clarity in sound production) to add to the frosty grim blizzard-based atmospheric Black Metal that is signature UVALL. Mesmerizing, melancholy, and deeply atmospheric (almost 'shoe-gaze'-y), with songs that burrow permanently into your memory very rapidly. High-calibre, yet still grim and cult; lucid and crystalline Blackened attack utterly drenched in profoundly melancholy aspirations and unrequited longing. As groundbreaking as the debut "Obsidian Torment" (see below), but clearly, a huge improvement, and definitely an essential tour-de-force from UVALL!
