I've gotta stop reminding myself to listen to this and just fucking listen to it.

I'll get around to it tonight for sure... You'll be the first to know if I agree with you on that. ^

Ya, like I said before I was supposed to review this a while back and never got around to it...kind of fell out of reviewing but that doesn't mean I won't give this at least a few listens.

I await a review that's going to rival the likes of D666 in terms of acclaim, in that case.

Finally got around to checking it out...

I started with "Black Hole Generator" and instantly got hooked. This is ridiculously catchy for tech-death, like it has a bit of that groovy thrash vibe to it, the songs don't stagnate in spite of the incredible display of technical proficiency, the vocals fit perfectly with the brutality of the music...literally everything tech-death fans look for is here.

I'm still trying to stop tapping my feet.

Right now I've got it ranked ahead of Obscura and Beyond Creation, and it's tough to say if I see any future death metal releases this year taking over that spot in the top 10.

As for whipping myself...I'd prefer it if you whipped me.

Yes indeed. Easily top 10 material, and it's all the more impressive since both of us have heard more than enough albums related to this year, to say the least.
About the whipping part; forget I said that. You're much too fragile and tender for punishments. <3

I found that after a few listens. I enjoyed it a lot at the beginning but then it just felt too similar throughout.

Yeah, some diversity is really needed....but when all is said and done, I'd still give it a 9.5

I hate it when the cover doesn't match the album name.

What do you mean? The image is unrelated to the album title?

From what I see here, yeah, but don't bother, I post unrelated stuff anyway

Ouroboros is a symbol of eternity which a snake eats its own tail.

So the cover art is more related to the band´s name.

Revisiting this, it's a shame the sophomore departed from this sound - it gets slightly repetitive towards the end, but there's just such a great barrage of intense yet hooky riffs throughout this. Emanations just isn't nearly as impactful
