Symphonic apocalyptic folk at its best, but...

...this album is incomplete. But, What Ends When the Symbols Shatter? was recorded at the tail end of Douglas P.'s long, productive association with David Tibet of Current 93, culminating in that band's 1992 classic Thunder Perfect Mind, which found Tibet's industrial noise project completing its transition into acoustic folk music, in no small part due to Douglas's guitar contributions.
