Being around for almost 20 years, Esoteric never were in a hurry to release as many albums as they could every 1-2 years. For some artists the burden of the aforementioned title is grandiose and they'd never exchange not even a bit of their quality for quantity. Esoteric belong to this group, they always took their time to bring together the main concept of every album and place in the right place at the right time all the ideas and emotions that were overrunning them at the time. And whenever it felt right a new work was coming our way to cleanse the band's world and torment the audience with all this sense of decay, horrid beauty and decomposition of morals transformed into vast fields of devastating soundscapes. So, almost 20 years of existence gave birth to 6 abhorrent children, with the successor to the throne being the newborn Paragon Of Dissonance, from the same septic womb, with the same unearthly stare, but with its very own personality and characteristics.

The band has gone from great to good for me. I am in the process of devaluating them

*Listeninging again *
As i wrote earlier the vocals are carrying the song. Maybe my equalizer is mixed the wrong way, to me the music sounds a bit light in relation to the vocals. Totally oustanding vocals though. Very good song now that i listen to it again. Maybe this album is a 9 after all

If an album can still surprise you after 51 listens it must be truly special
