Each year the same story: My wife (handmade pop music) and I (black metal maniac) go on holiday. We need some "soft" but honest music for long car drives. It is a tough week in advance to dive deeply into musical scrap to find some pearls like IRESS! For getting a place on this year's holiday playlist, IRESS' female fronted doom rock is far too dark and heavy but all holidays end and when I fall back into darkness, I will enjoy intensive tracks like "Shamed"!
Favorite track: Shamed.
I've been waiting for the physical release for a while and had to grab it the morning it came out. An amazing atmospheric album with excellent arrangements and vocals. The vocals are incredible!
Every song is a purge of your soul. Drowning your emotions as it goes. Just brilliant. Love all the songs but favourite so far has to be Nest but I could choose any.
Favorite track: Nest.
In the haunted house of life, art- music is the only stair that doesn’t creak. Iress summons supernatural sounds in this collection. Forget the ouija board just put this on after midnight and you’ll attract something. Love it!
Favorite track: Nest.

Darkhorse is an absolutely amazing song. The instrumentals are so beautiful. And your voice just pierces my soul so deep. I've been listening to the lost highways version for maybe a year, and I didn't realize it for a while, but Emma is easily in my top most very favorite newer music. I live in a little mountain town in Idaho, perhaps no one else here has heard you. But you have a huge fan in me. That includes everything I've heard, from acoustic to doom metal. Thank you soooo much <3 brenthutchinson
I am 100% here 100% of the time for strange and violent feminine energy, and this record delivers on it in spades. The vibe of this record is just so rich and evocative and velvety: the instrument tones, Kris’ crooning voice, the fallen gospel themes, and the raw and sneering anger that permeates the whole work. Very good stuff. pinkytheent
