Fading is an atmospheric, psychedelic, approximately hour-long black metal journey inspired by a specific event: Witnessing seemingly endless migrating water fowl at a local wildlife refuge that supports the Pacific Flyway. I found myself completely enveloped by something almost unbelievable. Infinite expanses of water fowl plastered against a blazing sky, taking to flight in huge, thunderous flocks that seemed to shake whatever lay below. The sheer numbers and sounds were like nothing I had ever imagined. Toward the evening, the sky turned a vibrant shade of yellow and orange and the coastal range turned to stark silhouette. And at that moment, it all seemed too much. I was just lost in this completely surreal, textured scene. I was faded to reality—absent drugs.
Fading was recorded in December 2014. The album consists of one approximately hour-long song. All drums, vocals, and guitars were performed and recorded by A. Field recordings are from the Pacific Flyway refuge.

Prone to staying up late; after purchase, playing this atmospheric wonder deep into the night; this whilst reading Gene Tierney's, Self Portrait; realizing the ephemeral nature of our lives; no escaping the vicissitudes of The Wheel. There would seem to be only one way to freedom; the narrowest of paths. Thoughts. Jeff Richardson

Interesting experimental black metal. The industrial and synth aspects don’t distract too much, because the blackened core remains throughout. There are a wide variety of musical elements on this album. It’s a fairly unique take on the genre. Good stuff. Metallurgical Fire
"Curse These Metal Hands" parlays the UK bands' chemistry into a record which—for all its tinnitus-inducing ferocity and elegiac arrangements—practically drips with transcendent joy. Bandcamp Album of the Day Aug 18, 2019
