Guest review by
This one has been a companion to me for a couple of years now, and counting. Not the optimal companion like a mix between a cat and a lemur would be, though. Yes, a cat-lemur would most certainly cause sheer annihilation of any physical device used for adorability measurement. Rotting Christ's Genesis is more like a raccoon. Not that raccoons aren't adorable, but bear with me here. And with "bear," I already have used up my annual allotment of animal references.

Pretty solid album. It can stretch near-boredom territories at times; but the song structures are so well defined that it keeps your interests peaked by the end of each track.

My first Rotting Christ album and I look forward to more.
Hello, my name is Mr......Snrub and I think it would be a capital idea to invest the money back in the nuclear plant.

Lex Talionis and Quintessence are awesome. There are definitely some bland areas and missteps though. Every song seems to have a really cool part, but it is often marred by some poor choice right next to it.
