Great dissonantly ambient black metal with wretched vocals done by the evil Wrest.

The riff at 2:58 sounds so Blut Aus Nord-esque:

The odd thing is that Lurker of Chalice is easily in my top 10 albums but I do not like this band and this album This is maybe too black metal for me. will give it another spin later. I would rate this 5.5-6 now.

Don't count Leviathan out until you've listened to the Silhouette In Splinters album. No black metal here, just awesome and spooky... something or other. Much closer to LoC than anything in the Leviathan discog.

Thank you, I would not give up just based on a few spins. At least, this album will help me to get more into black metal. Also, very tnx for link. Will check out tomorrow. Any other band close to LoC in terms of sound? I mean, ambient+ black metal without typical BM vocals?

This was intended to be a Lurker Of Chalice record and I can see why.

I absolutely hate the vocals. The gargled noise kills everything here. Not to mention the overbearing and lackluster drum work. Sorry Wrest, you missed the nail on this one.

Aside from the ambient parts, I really don't hear much LoC in here. It's just typical (albeit good) black metal.

There's a few points where it almost sounds like LoC, but only a small amount, and not for long. I think a Silhouette In Splinters is probably closer to LoC than this.

Ten Chambers is still his best release in my opinion, I haven't listened to any of his works in awhile though. I should go through them again.

I'm sick of trying this album so many times. It has some good moments, but tbh there are many "meh" moments that kill the whole record for me.

"meh" is never a reaction I have to this album. Receive the World is one of the best black metal songs ever (for me).

I do remember one song with immense ending and absolutely painful feeling, which was great. Maybe that is the one you are talking but the rest of it just does not do much. The vocals are major turn off and I'm so glad he didn't use his typical BM screams on LoC.

Quite LoC like indeed, especially the softer, 'floaty' sections which while nice, will never measure up to the ones in 'Spectre as Valkerie is'. Nothing has and probably nothing ever will.

Just got it

But when I extract the files to my music player it says Lurker Of Chalice, and the song titles are totally different... WTF?!

My tracklist:

01. Sacred Scars
02. Seamless Garment As The Morning
03. Last Breath Of Expiation
04. 6116
05. Phosphoros
06. Flagellum Raised To The Sky
07. Sanies Obnuntio

The booklet has Leviathan's logo on it and the songs are properly tagged. Does anyone else have the same issue?

Do you listen to it on your computer? foobar2000 ? Maybe try a different player and see if the problem persists?

I noticed that the latest version of Foobar2000 sometimes just goes haywire (my program automatically split the CD into tracks, and sometimes not). But just to be sure, you can try

Just realized that Vulgar Asceticism sounds like Kenose-era Deathspell Omega meets 777 Sect(s) Blut Aus Nord... pretty cool shit.
