Andrey This is We Lost The Sea's album. For me, this is enough to put this release in a row of their most beloved ones. Favorite track: Siege of Sevastopol.

jpd Sometimes it's high, sometimes it's low -- always on point. The emotional arc in this album is deeply satisfying and superbly crafted. Favorite track: The Vessel.

brantly Post-sludge that does a great job of turning the genres components slightly askew, creating a beautifully harrowing LP. 'March to Scutari,' is the LP's tour de force, displaying the strength of the band with vocals, as well as the post rock the band would perfect sans vocals. Knowing that this band's third effort turned the emotions of a heart-rending tragedy into an inspired, triumphant masterwork of art, this is a wonderful reminder of what was, and also a portent of the brilliance to come! Favorite track: March to Scutari.

The Vessel 02:57
2.
as we set out on our voyage across mysterious waters i stare into the matt black starry sky where you shine so pretty and bright! so bright! adored by the many that surround, you shine! your immaculate ways will guide me through to the end of our journey hail! star of the sea filled with uncertainty and fear i know you will see me through i know you will guide me through to the end with the stench of death in the air uncertainty and fear i know you will see me through to the end of our journey...
3.
bring forth the overpowering grasp of balaklava our men are left gnawing on desperation as their bodies give in to the torment that has stricken their souls amongst the hailing gunfire i turn to my side only to find my fellow allies... victimised by the mighty bear paw and so i pray for all of them who truly need it i praise them to the sky a sky that is burning red lit up like a furnace exactly how i pictured the end of the world is it really worth it? i look around all that is left is the rotten cores of... the slowly decaying walking dead and i refuse to take part! i will not take part keep pushing forward i will not take part keep pushing on
4.
conceived from an emperors womb raised for pure destruction but there is no defeat on conquerors land and so we were told... you must die where you stand
5.
over and beyond the blazing horizon is where serenity lies i’ve struggled through these smouldering fields slowly withering away and i’ve witnessed the forlorn gaze of the fallen brave their complexion has turned to absence their bodies all resembling paralysis and even though i’ve come out battered and bruised and barely breathing it’s your guidance that has brought me to where i stand triumph is now the epilogue because i still stand... i stand amongst the dead i still stand among the dead a home stretch, one final battle i will be joining you soon dying to be set free... we stride toward a blinding light with our heads held strong and high trumpets sound as we become the clouds we will forever roam like kings living eternal life
