Il'Ithil's exquisite black metal structures may well stand in thought as a narrow passage throughout the likes of heavy snowfall and howling frostbitten winds. Being the brainchild of mastermind Blake Green (from the drone/doom ranks of Wolvserpent and newest project Lunar Temple), it is no secret his art is inclined to provoke all human senses, despite how every project marks a different side of its creator's mind. Thus said, Il'Ithil consist his personal gateway to storming black metal landscapes, where cold atmosphere meets straightforward rawness in forms that seem both alluring and abrasive in their ways.
This perfect balance between his two different sides brings forth the start of a fascinating journey; as the rather well-aimed mix intends to blend the qualities of a frozen aura with sharp riffs that build an impenetrable structure. Make no mistake tho; the diversity of his achievement does not hold back the undeniably direct character of his songwriting, as Il'Ithil may sound cold, precise and straight to the point thanks to tasteful ideas that stand out through their distinctive highlights.
