Old time psychedelic band Six Organs of Admittance return with another moss covered adventure.

Go to the caves of thinking and be ready to immerse yourself in peat. "Haunted and Known" is the best song on the album.

Companion Rises is not a special record, it is an album which is enjoyable to listen to randomly when you are least expecting it.
