Dear France; whatever foul chemicals you've been putting into your children's milk, don't stop. Maybe it's a movement, or maybe that entire nation has just been going on constant psychotropic binges when the rest of us weren't paying attention, but either way, there's been some pretty wacky metal coming out of that country...recently? Or have they always had this "avantgarde" thing down with such astonishing creativity? Well, chalk up another one, because Akphaezya is another nifty little psychotic curiosity.

Too bad this one didn't feature as much jazz influences as the previous one, but there is a ton of impressive stuff on this one nevertheless. Insane record, I think I have a crush on the singer.

You rated the album '1' because you got no answer to what Nerak is?

Come on, I've listened to the whole album, it sounds like "fancy pop music" to me, to me its' a disgracing and distorting of metal

To me you are a Belakor fanboy giving low scores to any album that comes close to them in the ranking, but to each it's own I guess. Too bad you didn't like it.

In any case, this guy's sort of the new resident troll, or at least that seems to be his objective. It's not really working though, since our community isn't really responsive to that kind of behavior. :/

Besides, his voting pattern suggests he likes tanking things he doesn't like and overrating things he does.

Yeah, I know I shouldn't feed the troll. I just wanted to see his reaction, not mad about the rating going down or anything.

The debut album was much better, although admittedly this is a grower.
