I swear, everything that comes from Zeitgeister Music is pure gold. Owl was always kinda under the radar for me, but they still generally kick ass and I'm digging the atmospheric tone here. It sounds like a good blend of all their other work. It's scarcely metal at this point, but it's still worth the listen:

Maybe spoiler tags on that cover there.

Owl releases a lot of stuff lately, nothing has been quite as good as the self titled though.

I'm not found of 25 minute songs, just seems like pretentious ego driven arse-hattery and I'd rather not skip through through the album to play the best parts. My first thoughts on this EP is where has the experimentation and obscure riffs gone? This couldn't be further from Conquering the Kingdom of Rain. It mostly sounds like the same doom riffs throughout and minutes of ambient sounds, like a lazy jam session. Much disappointment.

I love their self titled, but haven't really heard their other stuff, will check it, thanks.

it's not coming out on physical format at any point or at any point in the forseeable future, so that saddens me. I like it but yea it's the most expansive work and like Christian told me in the email when I asked about a physica... "This song had just to be released the easy way. It was written that way, it was more like a therapy, so I didn't want to bother myself with a physical release."
