Owen W Brooding progressive death doom metal that never loses itself to technicality for its own sake. The instrumentals are precisely played, but don't lose their human touch in the process. Rather than going for flash, the band makes music that's technical while still being emotionally evocative. The songs transition between acoustic-backed interludes, death doom instrumentals, and all-out death metal seamlessly, united by a somber mood. Favorite track: The heavens are not on fire.

Obstacle of Affliction While listening, I suddenly looked down to find my socks had, in deed, been blown off and now my toes had become chilled.
Such a incredible debut album!
Hope to hear much more for Wills Dissolve in the future. Favorite track: for signs from on high.

Katimavik86 Multi-layered progressive / technical death metal and a really great listen. Highly recommended stuff. Favorite track: on this cold November night.

Tim Really like the progressive, technical stylings they put forth. Each song also has some great ambient instrumentation which does not conflict with the technical side, but greatly compliments it. I also love the varied vocal stylings. There's definitely some Opeth and Ihsahn influence here, yet still feels unique. Definitely looking forward towards any future releases from them.

Side note: I love that intro in "So Do Not Mistake These Ashes". It has this sort of calm before the storm like effect Favorite track: so do not mistake these ashes.
