Woman is the Earth is one of those Cascadian/atmoblack acts that, with the prevalence of their predecessors, tend to be criminally overlooked. Having a few prior releases under their belt, all dripping with merit and unfurling promise, "Torch" felt like the culmination of their identity and remains my favorite of their catalog to date. All of the majesty of Cascadian black metal's ethereal compositions wrapped in a warmer production and generously garnished with apt aggression. Phenomenal album.
Favorite track: Brother Of Black Smoke.
