Umbra follows Alix, a newly-minted Sigilburner, as she chooses the path of shadow, hunting and slaughtering demons who slink unseen in the darkest corners of the world. She steals their powers and hunts increasingly deadly prey, becoming more like a shadow herself. As she burns the final umbral sigil into her flesh, she vanishes entirely, completing her transition into the dark.

Sigilburner is a darksynth producer out of North Carolina. His sophomore release, Umbra, infuses classic analog synthwave with a mix of eclectic influences ranging from disco to house to classical. The result is an album that changes drastically from track to track, unified by an atmosphere of darkness.
