Cairn continues to build upon the foundation of existential exploration and personal suffering wrought by religion, nature, and life itself that the artist's prior two albums laid (S/T - 2012; "Yodh" - 2016). Cairn muses on the absurd premise that is human experience: life is devoid of ultimate meaning and mankind can't help but continually seek meaning in it despite this. Lyrically influenced by the works of Albert Camus, A.L.N. (Mizmor) has created sonic power so big and so full of existential dread, it demands your undivided attention.
Over the four tracks (spanning almost 60 minutes), A.L.N.'s ability to effortlessly intertwine black metal, doom, and drone - all while retaining pummeling emotional power and momentum - proves Mizmor is an unstoppable force than spans across genres of heavy metal.
