Akhlys having to follow-up The Dreaming I sure is a massive task.

Really something to look out for! The already released songs promise a great record.

I shouldn't have listened to this before the previous album. The production is so much denser on this release (I can't tell if it's lower tuned guitars or better mixed bass) and it ruined the experience of the other release. Looking forward to hearing the whole thing.

I'm around, but definitely less active. Definitely a lot less free time in the last few years

You're still one of my best sources of adding new bands.

There's definitely some dark ambience present on this album, but this is actually a good album. Truly disturbing stuff from the music and the album cover. I'll have to hear the rest of their music.

A very good black metal album, I didn't care for the dark ambience aspects. The 2nd and the fourth track give me goosebumps everytime I listened to them. Great, superb riffs.

Same, the drawn out atmospheric parts are a bit too much. I can see why they put them in as it creates a nice dark atmosphere but I would have preferred if they weren't as long or just didn't exist. Would be an easy 9/10 without them and I probably won't relisten this album as much because of those parts.

Still overall this is a great album. The moments where it's good it's REALLY good. Some passages remind me of nightbringer at their best.

A wonderful follow-up to an amazing album. And I'm a big fan of the dark ambient parts so this is easily a nine for me.

Slowly working my way through a 2020 backlog for the MS awards - got to say this made me sit up and pay attention. Love the atmosphere throughout, some really intense moments. Production's great too.
