Revenant Marquis – Orphans (2020)

I gave Revenant Marquis a second shot because I love the mystery around the project and this cover art is fucking so great. Unfortunately, what we have here on Orphans is more barely audible black metal that sounds like it’s being played from a third floor study in a haunted house – and you the listener are shackled in chains down in the basement. Honestly, why on earth would you make this so difficult to hear? Haha! There is something endearing about it, but it’s hard to really dig it because you can’t really make anything out. A shame.
