Ashbringer is a very apt name for this project. They bring forth bleak atmospheres and spew vocals like ash from a volcano. But that's not all, each song takes different turns and brings out fantastic moods of all kinds. This is my type of black metal, the kind that grabs you and takes you on a journey. Vacant escorts you to some abysmal locations and then brings you back to the grandeur of nature. As is evident by the cover art, Vacant is woodsy yet dark, angry yet melancholic. A tragicpiece. The only tiny qualm I have with this album is the clean singing. Though many people enjoy clean singing in black metal, it usually distracts from the atmosphere for me. Luckily clean vocals are used sparingly on Vacant, so it doesn't detract much from the album.
