Obstacle of Affliction What a wonderful release. The vocals are emotional and moving. Song writing as a whole is expertly crafted and performed. This is an excellent doom release that should be heard. Favorite track: The Moon Made Flesh.

H.L. "Symbols..." really presents different shades of grey: Sometimes it is doom death and I think at Mourning Beloveth. Sometimes it is atmospheric dark metal and Anathema comes to mind in the clean vocals passages. And sometimes it is more obscure and melancholic reminding me at Rapture or other Finnish masters like Ghost Brigade. But despite all these influences PLATEAU SIGMA's varied style sounds fresh and special! A touching soundtrack for autum. Favorite track: Ouija and the Qvantvm.

about

Symbols or The Sleeping Harmony of the World Below
“The imagination is not a state: it is the human existence itself”.
(William Blake)
Symbols are everywhere.
They drag their power from our imagination, weaving a web of secret correspondences between reality and the realm of ideas.
A realm, a world hidden just below the surface, where our deepest desires lie, sleeping.
Symbols represent beliefs, ideals and hopes. They are the insignia under which empires are born and die, gods are worshipped, revolutions explode, kings are consecrated or dethroned.
It has been almost ten years now.A journey which has brought us much further then we thought. We are grateful for everything we experienced along the road, but we feel it's just the beginning of greater things. Three times you've heard our voice before and this is the fourth act of our story.
In the past few years we took a break. We've been crafting sounds, hoping to find the perfect chimera made of our many influences.
We believe this album is that chimera.
These are songs about history, afterlife, revelations, sex, religion, science, magic, war, paradoxes, atoms, myths, dogmas, miracles and wonders.
As metal musicians, we believe it is our duty to inquire the darkest aspects of life, to capture a small hint of the pathos, the beauty and dread of existence.
To plunge into the shady waters of the World Below.
