Illimitable Dolor‘s release has received rave reviews so far which is hardly surprising as their music stands out for reasons of sincerity and emotional depth among other things. In fact, the last song name is the date of their close friend’s passing, which made them form this band in the first place. Indy Metal Vault is streaming this beautiful album AT THIS LINK.
