Enter Mansion, a Finnish doom project characterised by a gloomy atmosphere, occult themes, a modern production and Alma’s but also Osmo’s vocals. Hypnotic at times, ambient soundscapes and multiple layers in the mix adds greatly to the experience. Percussion is also a highlight maybe for the same reason, but also for the use of different drum elements. “Heathen Hole” is a great sum-up to all of this, having the album a total of seven tracks lasting fifty minutes.
Varied but with almost completely a slow, gloomy doom tempo, its all about the atmosphere and message. Mansion‘s lyrics deal with kartonism, an old Finnish Christian cult. So instead of Ghosts‘s approach of worshiping the devil, here we have the opposite, with a perfect fit on both music and lyrics.
