The gravity of indecision reaches a witheringly existential crisis on Lethe's sprawling deep drone piece "Faillite." Over an hour of sub-tones clawing their way to a broken surface, feeding off a greying aura of regret and self-dismissal. The question of presence is distilled to a nullifying extreme, embodying the lack of a person. Lethe again reaches far into the astral and brings back a cosmic mirror by which all failures shall be measured. Excess and gratification of the base yields a reaping of sorrows. This is the exit, the doorway into the void. Forever falling, drowning in the emptiness of indifference. Beyond lies poison and despair, black and engulfing, ever-hungry and screaming for more.
