To once again quote a fellow user and reviewer who was wise before I was:

"This album is Ulcerate's The Eye Of Every Storm."

Every Ulcerate album sounds exactly the same to me

It doesn't float me boat.
It's a tad too complicated and a little up it's own arse with polyrhythms. Not to mention that every single track sounds pretty much the same...

Incredible, this will probably be my Metal AOTY.

You know, Ulcerate was always a bit too much for me. I love Gorguts and most of the bands that followed their path, and every Ulcerate record I've heard until now sounded interesting, but nothing more. Like their songwriting never felt very refined and the songs rarely blew me away. I still respected them madly because of the unique style. Enter Stare Into Death And Be Still, an album which adds more variety to their style, which has like half of their best songs and consistently keeps me on the edge of my seat. It is a bit too long, and there could be a bit more of those atmospheric sections which were killer, but it's the first Ulcerate record that I truly love, and it's probably my metal AOTY for now. Great feeling, to finally love the band which I couldn't get into before.

Ulcerate went a bit closer to Nero di Marte's sound (pre-Immoto) here in terms of making things a bit more spacious, and in doing so turned from a band I appreciated to one that I dig hard. This is a fantastic album

Think I am not a fan of their style. Found all the songs same.
In the beginning I was made of clay. Then I bit the apple and they changed me to metal 🤘

The post metal aesthetics is the major difference in this album compared to rest. Love it.

Jesus Christ, this band has a planet-crushing sound. The dissonance entrances me.

I'd top this masterpiece among the 5 best records of the year. It sounds perfectly smooth towards a very good aggressive approach that only an excelent death metal execution can offer.

I moved my rating from a 7 to a solid 9. The biggest reason being is what they were doing didn't make perfect sense until now. The vocals were the biggest issue for me in the beginning. They weren't quite what I was into so the rest of the music started to bore me. If you lose sight of the technical/avant-garde aspects it starts to begin to sound like a jumbled mess. The vocals aren't the greatest but they're tolerable enough to where the music works perfectly fine.
"If people kept things simple, there would be no discoveries in the world. If scientists said, "The brain is just a brain" and not take it by small segments and labeling it - We would not have come as far. Labels are necessary. Music is sci

Another decent album by one of the most overrated modern metal bands.
Crackhead Megadeth reigns supreme.

I really tried liking this, and I found myself enjoying the first few songs, but it tends to drone on, and it just sounds like the same wall of noise for the next 40+ minutes. I like some dissonance in my DM, it can add to the atmosphere. However, an hour straight of dissonance ends up sounding like a wall of nondescript noise
2020 AotY for me (constant work in progress)
