The main problem with this EP is that it’s just a completely pointless release really. There are only two songs on here, both of which are remakes of tracks from The Mantle, and the overall feeling of the two songs is that they’re just pointless remakes.
The first track is a remake of “The Lodge”, and it runs about three times longer than the original version of the song. The problem with the song is that it’s just overlong, the song will drag on and no go anywhere for about three minutes, then change pace into something different for another three minutes, and the last four minutes of the song are nothing but some distorted screeches on the guitar, and it’s more annoying than anything really.
If you listened to the screeching guitars on the first track and you thought that was annoying, then you will hate the next track. There’s a reason as to why they call this one the nothing remix, it’s because it sounds like nothing. The song is basically what happens when you take the guitars, drums, or everything out of the original song of “Odal”. The only real sound I can actually describe is two minutes into the song. It sounds like a very weak keyboard note might be getting played. This track I guess is supposed to be a dark ambient piece of something like that, only it doesn’t sound like ambient. It has some sort of dark feel to it, but maybe that’s because it’s an annoying remake.
If you were to describe these two remakes in one word that word would be worthless. There isn’t really any good reason to get this EP. If you want to get the tracks in their better and original forms get The Mantle. Don’t bother with The Grey.
