Dark folk done right with equally haunting and beautiful ballads in masterful orchestration. This is your devil's lullabies for the forthcoming apocalypse.
A landmark neofolk record.
Death In June distances themselves further from their post punk roots to create a set of haunting yet relatively simple tracks.
Though mainly driven by Douglas' superb guitar playing and almost emotionless vocals, "What Ends..." is always filled to the brim with a lush and wholly acoustic atmosphere.
Choirs, booming war drums, quiet whisper and wind chimes float in and out of the mix, like ghosts from a time long passed.
Death in june 1992 LP "But, what ends when the symbols shatter?" is one of the uninteresting projects to come out of their discography. The song/writing and musicial structures feels a lot more to be desired.
