Like Wrekmeister Harmonies' two previous albums, Night of Your Ascension consists of madrigal/sacred choral music, experimental ambient music, and doom. This time around (thanks to help from arrangers Eric Chaleff, Cooper Crain, and Sanford Parker), . Robinson takes a developmental leap forward in all three arenas, but it isn't until the beginning motif of the second track "Run Priest Run" where all these disparate elements actually blend together, in a passage that lasts in excess of 8 minutes and. could easily have appeared on Hundred Waters' last album
But after its halfway point Night Of Your Ascension shifts creepily from post-madrigal avant-garde music to the thunderous doom metal that Wrekmeister Harmonies approaches so well. Building carefully on the back of the Bonham-on-codeine beat, the piece elevates first into a thick fog of stoner doom and then into a hell-raising shriek-fest that continues for several minutes. Unlike the first track, however, 'Run Priest Run' settles down in its final moments, cycling the listener back to where the album began: a calm, pseudo-religious atmosphere, detached, celestial. It makes the album work as a forty-nine-minute unit - one that explores, through a cascading matrix of sounds and musical forms, the nuances of the demons that course side-by-side through history, religion, and music.
