He has done it again. Alexander Von Meilenwald has put out another brilliant Black metal opus. I am now fully convinced that this man is a musical genius. I know reviewers need to maintain a sense of objectivity, but we also need to recognize brilliant music whenever it slaps us in the face and have the balls to spread the word. And well, this is us fucking wreckingball.

  Such as shame. Such a good album with such crappy sub standard cover art.

I wouldn't call it crappy.. but it's not the most appealing

Rating: 6 Sorry guys, I am really disappointed by this. I do not know whats so especial about this that makes noticeable staff/ elits like Lucas, Joe, Mr Doctor and Troy praise it. It just did not worked for me. The vocals are annoying. The drum is just terrible in faster parts. Most importantly, it lacks the emotional impact which doom metal is supposed to have. 4/10 for me.

doom metal


Wonder who put the doom tag here... Since when is this band doomy? Just black metal. Fine one at that but that's my opinion.

If you ask me this album is far more doom oriented than black

I admit it has been ages since I listened to it. So I will give this the benefit of the doubt till I hear it again and can whine about it.

At any rate the tag (which I implemented by the way) doesn't stipulate that this is purely doom, rather that doom was introduced on this album. It's a very close mix but the overall doomy vibe definitely outdoes the black metal aspect.

Fuck me, NOW I know what this album reminded me off.

  Definitely my least favorite TRoB album, still great though.
InnerSelf - 14.02.2013 at 23:18  
Rating: 9 TRoB always had a little bit of doom in their black ... 2nd song on Rain Upon the Impure could be easily written by Mourning Beloveth or MDB

This is not a pure doom metal record for sure but IMO it still can be classified as doom influenced album. I have not listened to any blackended doom album so can not put this in that category but it at least tries to combine doom and black metal.
Beside the genre tag, I did not liked it. Doom or black, it failed to impress me as much as I thought it would

Rating: 8 I don't like teh cleans at all, but the rest of this is a really solid doom output.

hahaha! true. I'd say it looks more MTG to draw a line but it is most assuredly Yu-Gi-Oh what with the broad style of art... I feel very nerdy right now.

Rating: 6 I feel to be guilty because of not liking this album, should revisit this asap to see any if anything would change.

Rating: 9 The first track is so catchy, had it in my head for months, very empowering melody.
mz - 05.09.2013 at 17:37  
Rating: 6 I change my rating from 4 to . It is not that bad (it is actually pretty good I must say). Especially during the slower parts, band have impressive sound. "Mount Sinai Moloch" track is 9+ IMO and the other good tracks are the intro and outro. I still believe that faster parts are not that good, though
