Shambling, out of tune strum, synth overload. Someone clatters old boxes and some pots and pans.

Wallet of Wasps has more of a tune, but in the Shadow Ring universe this is a distinct and relative thing. Here it equals acoustic guitar motif, muffled kettle drum and muted gong.

The music is intentionally awkward. None of this would work were it not for the deadpan vocals. They have a somber gravitas and there is some ancient about them. You feel as if the band are privy to some lost medieval truth which they seem reticent to share.
