Mist of Antiquity is a project by an artist who used to make DS under a different name. Being familiar with some of the artists has allowed me to experience the progression of their music but also their thought processes while creating. Before the Dawn of a Noble Age is not only a stunning debut but perhaps the best the artist has done in terms of creation. Regal, mournful, and with an air of stoic pride, this debut encapsulates many aspects of DS under one standard.
Favorite track: Out of the Battered Burh (From Sorrow Rise).
