about

"While some of Collins' works have leaned a lot into more guitar-centric sounds and traditional structures, on Tenebroso he goes for a more understated, cinematic approach. Bleak and dark, but without any trite cliché elements, the resulting disc is a wonderfully unsettling one."
-Creaig Dunton, Brainwashed.com

"Tenebroso's opening track, "Scythe," is an understated composition featuring Mamiffer's Faith Coloccia on piano. She shows up after a soft, smoky blast of feedback, and maintains a spacious, icy pace until we hear silence (something maintained for an almost uncomfortable amount of time by the slow-fade start-up of the next track). The album heads into more obviously foreboding places, but this compact, delicate track-- albeit, one named after something potentially deadly-- is the one that gives me goosebumps."
-Brandon Stosuy, Pitchfork.com
