Job : I, Voidhanger is re-releasing the Mare Cognitum / Spectral Lore split ‘Sol’ at the end of March. Where the original came out back in 2013, and quite frankly didn’t need a remaster, the label has possibly seen a surge in popularity for both one-man bands and decided this was worth the re-release. The American Jacob Buczarski bundles forces with the Greek Ayloss on this split. Don’t let the format fool you though – there are three insanely long compositions on this split, and it should be treated as a collection of a full-on EP for both groups with a collaborative song at the end called ‘Red Giant’.
Now, content-wise, the split hasn’t changed. Mix-wise, the split has barely changed (Mare Cognitum’s contribution still sounds way better in every aspect). And that summarizes most of the split – not a lot has changed and therefor I can only truly recommend this to anyone who’s still yearning for a lesson in great atmospheric black or someone who hasn’t heard of the stellar Mare Cognitum yet.
