09:01 - Apothecary Everything in Enslaved's discog is pretty engaging and high quality if you ask me, they're remarkably consistent. Only one of their full lengths has below an 8 on here, and even then it's a 7.9. That says a lot
08:56 - Stereolab42 The lower-rated Enslaved albums are lower-rated for a reason. Blech. They have crazy-good highs and boring-ass, sleep-inducing lows.

Sarpanitum's debut album Despoilment Of Origin was a welcome injection to the UK's death metal scene; an extremely accomplished, crushing slab of metal. Four years on and after numerous line-up changes and a two year hiatus, Sarpanitum are back and working on a new album. This Fidelium EP then, is presumably a taste of things to come.
