It's an EP featuring two brand new songs by WITTR, and it's rather an experimental release (so you haven't heard any WITTR albums before, I'd recommend one of their earlier releases). The first track is very good, it's pure atmospheric black metal melancholy and it has female vocals. The second track features more traditional, bleak and aggressive black metal, but IMO it isn't as good as the first. (By the way, "Hate Crystal" - wtf does that title mean?..) Overall this release is a try of a new approach towards black metal... whether you like it or not.
