“Atropos” is as spiritual as any music I can think of, including Arvo Part and Gorecki.

Vouna is timeless. Vouna is spiritual music for nihilists like us.
Raw, emotional, versatile, and spiritual music from Brock Van Wey, a.k.a. Bvdub.

What’s this, black metal with major chords and post-prog passages? Remniscent of Enslaved, and I know that’s a moving-target of a comparison.
