Modern and straight forward melancholic Post Metal with the occasional outburst that, especially given the clean singing style of the band´s vocalist, reminds me a lot of Manes. Solid debut.
Favorite track: Cinder.
Tav n'est pas loin d'Anathema - des bons albums d'Anathema, c'est à dire pour moi ceux qui viennent juste après leur rupture avec le death (Aternative 4, Judgement...). C'est sans doute ce qui m'a attiré ici.
Soft atmospheres enlighted with glimpses of agression, beautiful and infinite music. A sonic voyage at the edge of many genres, all of them carefully bonded and sculpted to achieve ultimate sophistication, visiting feelings that go from yearning to peace.
Favorite track: Beggar's Dream Of Death.
I have fallen in love with this album from the first second. Its so full of emotions, I see no other way.
Its not often I listen to a song that was done so well it made me hold my chest.
Favorite track: Boundless Gaol.
TAV was founded in Munich/Germany in 2017 and plays atmospheric rock music. Venturing beyond traditional musical borders, the band brings together different styles and merges them in minimalistic patterns, blurring the conventional structure of songs.
On their first full-length TAV creates surreal and sombre atmospheres, putting the sole focus on sentiment rather than genre or categorisation. Facing the paradox of fragile beauty within a threatening and hollow mode of existence, there is neither black or white, nor any middle ground or an ultimate whole. Only a constant state of metamorphosis.

A real stunner here. I love the immersion so much. Black metal with a really involved story line aspect. All the sounds coming out are just great all around. And Killer riffs, broad, pounding black metal goodness for the masses. Aaoka Ai
Some of the finest German Black Metal! There are some very novel ideas here & most of them work very well! Alexander von Meilenwald certanly knows how to have fun & play with music which, at the end of the day, is precisely its purpose according to me. It has a slightly more Gothic metal feel in general than his previous albums but it is still extremely interesting from start to finish!. Highly recommended! bmurator
Ván Records is definitely one of the most interesting record labels out there. I enjoyed 2018's Sulphur Aeon record, but somehow missed this one. What an excellent, all-around stunning performance. I have never heard Death Metal being played like this. Void of Words had me speechless a few seconds in. Keen for more Chapel of Disease for sure. David Fischer
