This is excellently crafted, if a little scattered in its delivery. It has that evil/occult atmosphere, shifting tones, complex structures, bombastic and subdued classical instrumentation, varied pacing, timely melodies and jarring riffs, experimental technicality. Not to sound too pretentious, but this is the kind of black metal you can label "intelligent" and get away with it.

There's a lot to take in during a single sitting and I think repeat listens will help with digesting its manic flow.

What makes you say that?

I totally agree .. especially with the last part ... at first it was too overwhealming, but once you get more used to it, you can hear the beauty of its construct
