The organ of yore has been replaced by ocassional touches of mystical synth in a most early '90s manner, while the vocals similarly plumb stouter depths. If anything, one could say that MORKETIDA are nodding more toward an ancient Eastern European expression or one less-than-tangentially removed from the contemporaneous Hellenic scene. Either way, their exploration of the unknown continues with Traveler of the Untouched Voids...
