Fall of Efrafa - Inlé 2xLP

Never really knew what to do with these guys. You see, Britain's Fall of Efrafa not only have an awful name, they're also all over the place, mixing elements of post-rock, hardcore, black metal and even krautrock. Yep... It seems a lot of people are into them though, maybe just for parts of the songs in their respective genre, or because this way they only have to sit through one band while consuming a lot of others at the same time. Comparison wise, I'd say this is somewhere in between earlier Mouth Of The Architect and Battlelfields.

The story behind these recordings is interesting enough though, as this is apparently the final chapter of their "Watership Down" inspired Trilogy of records known as "The Warren Of Snares", consisting of:
- Owlsa, (warrior) the first record, created the narrative of an unnamed society in the final throws of a war against mankind.
- Elil (predator)was the second full length and dealt with these beliefs, and the oppressive reign of religious indoctrination.
- Inlé" (death) is the final recording effort of Fall of Efrafa, after this they disband.

Sound Devastation are now taking pre-orders for the 2xLP, available on regular black vinyl, as well as different coloured versions, all limited to 200 copies.
