The third album of The Howling Void takes the listeners from the aerial and weightless previous album to the earth depths depicted by overwhelming sounds of epic funeral doom metal. Unique sound of the band is still magically attractive, its style is still recognizable; but this time heavy guitars combined with atmospheric keyboards bring the sense of moonless nights severity, ice cold breath of dungeons and deserted landscapes. «The Womb Beyond The World», the album, the journey, the phenomenon.
The cover artwork features another masterpiece of Russian art of 19th century, Nikolai Ge’s painting «Conscience. Judas» which figuratively reveals the album concept: gloom, desolation, and despair.
The album comes as a limited edition digipack.
