Hymns from the deep is an exploration of the dark depths of Moria from J.R.R. Tolkien's venerated The Lord of the Rings. The lyrics are one long epic poem written by Myrddin Evans, based on the chapter 'The Bridge of Khazad Dum' from The Fellowship of the Ring. This spans across the tracks of the album which musically draws influence from funeral doom, death metal, black metal and dark ambient. All music and instrumental performances come from Daniel Scrivener with Matthew Surry channeling the voice of the Balrog to complete the project. This is cavernous and foreboding funeral doom that is highly recommended to fans of EVOKEN, THE RUINS OF BEVERAST, ESOTERIC.
