Omnio A brilliant debut, genuinely atmospheric and haunting. It starts off great and gets better as it plays out. One to watch. Favorite track: Nazaré.

Vinyl Junkie Great debut! Atmospheric neofolk with a pinch of black metal .. the entire lp is one of the best this year imho. dark and beautiful Favorite track: The Elm.

Nader Very haunting and ambient album. I loved every bit of it. It doesn't flow at the same pace but that's exactly what you want happening. Few people manage to capture such a melancholic, dark, and (pleasantly) harrowing atmosphere. Emily has done this and more. Painfully beautiful album. I believe this term is accurate enough to describe it. Favorite track: Three Rivers.

about

Emily Highfield’s one woman project Suldusk has woven the acoustic tones of Dark/Neo Folk with elements of Post Rock and Atmospheric Black Metal to create a powerful panorama of shimmering guitars, haunting melodies and atmospheric density on her debut album “Lunar Falls”.

The album’s undercurrent theme is about living on the margins, and the intolerable suffering and sacrifice in the quest for identity. Nature provides much of the lyrical inspiration as the source of refuge and guidance throughout this quest. It is dedicated to the memory of Aleah Starbridge. “The Elm” is an adaptation of Aleah’s and Juha Raivio’s song “Sinking Ships”.

Track Name: Solus Ipse
I am lost in the robes of all this light

Blood of my blood, Below Above, Take my restless fire

The wisdom of my finest hour, these mountain towers, a tribute of delight

This fire runs.
Track Name: The Elm
In solitude we walk shrouded in our dreams
Into the mists of night, spirits left unseen
Dear anguish redeem me with your gentle kiss
And lay this sadness into the abyss

I wish I wish but its all in vain
Wish we were free again
To find the place under the elm, where our shadows they still realm

Through the vastness, and on the other side
We leave our masks there, no longer we do hide
Oppose the light and gather, all of our storms
Shoot down the sun, wearing your crown of thorns.
Track Name: Aphasia
Nightfalls, summoning, breathless sky dissolving
Emerge, becoming, all for naught your suffering

Lullaby, mesmerise, labyrinth, wyverns cry
Firelight, glowing, Hadean eyes, all knowing
Emerge, becoming, all for naught your suffering

In this black sea of trees, shadows rise
Drifting moon see it through
And touch the mist of the morning
Track Name: Three Rivers
By the river I dwell, where the water whispers
Lost lullabies, sighing deep inside
Solstafir, imbibe and drown me
To re-appear, blazing white light ecstasy

Ricochet of stars, you appear before me
Face in my hands, as you weep my name
Time grows short, we are almost there
Beyond all help, as we dance into the void

Come into this night, atone in the eclipse
What does it matter now?
As we fall inside, and watch shadows die
Three Rivers will be our guide.
Track Name: Autumnal Resolve
Borne of autumn storms and stars, to come so far
Seeking comfort in the dream, behind your eyes
Sacrifice, stars to die to survive

You are safe now beloved
In the mist now we await
In the rivers of grief we were drowning
By the rich of the dark we will awake

Breathe your air, eye to eye, we lie
Sage and Seers coming home
Drifting back to the catacombs
Track Name: Catacombs
Borne of autumn storms and stars, to come so far
Seeking comfort in the dream, behind your eyes
Sacrifice, stars to die to survive

You are safe now beloved
In the mist now we await
In the rivers of grief we were drowning
By the rich of the dark we will awake

Breathe your air, eye to eye, we lie
Sage and Seers coming home
Drifting back to the catacombs
Track Name: Nazaré
Lay your bones amid the hollows
Melt your marrow on the shore
Carry On, Drown The Sun
Runner

Lay your words through solemn forests
Flood your fears through the fog
Carry On, Drown The Sun
Runner

These days beneath me, fall like greatest days
Now let me through, this ocean of sorrow
To the Nazaré
Track Name: Drogue
Fall between the trees, starless
Eternal eidolons drifting dreamless
Are we the undeserved
We are embracing hallowed darkness
Summoning up our storms
We are blackened incarnations
Of the void we know so well
Of the maledictions that befell us
Before we ever came into the light
Bonded by the void we are
Track Name: Sovran Shrines
Through the fog, shadow skies
Silence in the rise
The cold came, a wild silence
This necropolis

Morning Star, resplendent
The time has come
Candlekeep, all aflame
Rebirth in the flight

All through the night
Vestige of Light
Will remain

Elegy Luminous
Under starry crowns
These tears serve me not
This ellipsis

Star of Lethe come for me
Purify these embers
Candlekeep all aflame
Amphora of the restless

This knowing it came rolling
Before we could ever speak
Unto a silent sky we watch
The bludgeoning of our dreams
All but light will fall
And last unto the end
Resting on our sovran shrines
Hidden evergreen.
