On third full-length “A Collapse Of Faith”, the bipolar Finns return with an epic, rich and wholesome work showcasing their darker, blacker sensibilities. Moving ever-further from those acoustic / folk beginnings, Mikko and co. portray their harshest, bleakest persona. As with predecessor “The Womb Of Primordial Nature”, OCTOBER FALLS continues to explore the darker side of its muse, but the gloom is encased in an enigmatic, melodious shell, creating a deep and opulent texture. Feral spirits gather beneath the pallid glow of a full moon, slender slivers of pale light barely illuminating their foul forms. The figures flicker – almost imperceptibly – paying homage to the dark night skies, shapeshifting shadows shimmering across a vast, timeless horizon. Night’s cold, lupine teeth bite hungrily, searing the glimmering lifeforms as nature follows its tragic course, a terrible, irresistible union of beauty and cruelty. The blood of generations seeps into the soil; from this death shall life rise once more. Horns chime for the end; burial mounds of ash pile high, reaching desperately towards an indifferent sky. All human ideals are shattered; pride is torn apart; faith collapses in a quivering, worthless heap. Rivers run red and a grateful world thrives, cleansed of human ineptitude.
