Palmless Prayer/Mass Murder Refrain Is a collaborative effort from two distinguished Post-Rock entities. The album invokes, almost, a debilitating sadness. Filled with strings and haunting voices, it is best to listen to in the dark…enveloped in your despair. I thought about including the whole LP as the cathartic release from the depths of your darkness is best achieved in its entirety, but settled on Part III instead.
“A grief without a pang, void, dark and drear,
A drowsy, stifled, unimpassioned grief,
Which finds no natural outlet or relief,
In word, or sigh, or tear.”
― Samuel Taylor Coleridge
