brantly A unique and memorable take on hopelessly depressive post-Alcest black metal. Elements of blackgaze are there, but it's so much more than that in its grave beauty. A haunting dichotomy of almost hymnal laments, sepulchral screaming with top-notch musicianship that employs a wide swath of styles that seamlessly moves from hushed, contemplative moments to violent absolving emotional catharsis.

Jake Personally, the first song of this release hits me pretty close to home, so sentimentality plays some part in my love for this album. The degree of haunting beauty and sorrow is absolutely chilling. I listen to a lot of music without cleans, but when a band mixes them so perfectly as Numenorean does, I find it completely decimates music that avoids the use of cleans, and stays with me much longer. I feel like there's not enough good things to say about these simply magnificent Canadians! Favorite track: Let me in.

Jason Harper Great background. Very nice to get a glimpse of from where this bands sound has evolved. Numenorean in the raw. Favorite track: Let me in.

Reviews:

"I was captivated from the first moments by the reverberating solo guitar melody and continued to be carried away by the song as it evolved, moving through soft passages of sorrowful meditation and powerful waves of riffs coming down like sheets of rain, and concluding with the strumming of an acoustic guitar." - NoCleanSinging

"Numenorean’s 2014 demo is without doubt one of best demos I’ve had the pleasure of listening to and that’s strange because I’d never heard of the band prior to receiving this demo for review. There’s an unbelievable talent here and fantastic skill and understanding of how to write and perfect great post black metal songs. It made me instantly want to hear more from the band and I’m eager to listen to the full length next year which i believe could put them on the black metal map." - TheIndependentVoice

"Numenerean plays a style of post black metal/gaze that is very melodic and atmospheric sounding while also making both of the tracks very melancholic and progressive, the production sounds very dark yet powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover darkness and nature themes." - Occultblackmetalzine

"Really awesome post black metal from Calgary, AB. Numenorean started off as a two person project that quickly grew to a full lineup. They remind me a lot of Falls of Rauros, a very big sound to inspire and fill your head space. I love it when a band comes out of the gate with a powerful demo." - BlackMetalMother

about

Numenorean Calgary, Alberta

The pain of life's journey does not relent. It beats against the soul's shores until the spirit is eroded. The child dies smiling, in the bliss of eternal unknowing. Comfort is found in the abyss. The destination seems bleak, ingrained deep within us. In its depths, we find what we have known all along: 'Home'. ... more
