Issued in 2008, this five-track split EP presents three songs by the Japanese hardcore band Envy and two by the British post-rock/metal act Jesu (aka singer/guitarist Justin Broadrick, formerly of Godflesh). While Envy mixes atmosphere and aggression (see "A Winter Quest for Fantasy"), Jesu primarily sticks to the former, offering up a pair of mesmerizing extended pieces. Largely inhabiting the same moody realm as Jesu's previous split releases with Eluvium and Battle of Mice, the tracks are anchored by spare drum-machine beats, with both "Hard to Reach" and "The Stars That Hang Above You" stretching out to incorporate alternately shimmering and ominous guitar lines that are soothing and slightly unsettling.
