Classic Monster of Obscene Productions! Highly Recommended

So, I was looking for bizarre/Technical bands on the Internet, some guy told me to go for !T.O.O.H! and Lykathea Aflame, I actually don't recall his name, but thanks to that fellow I found 2 of the most talented bands in the metal scene, I reviewed the first name a couple of months ago, now, after a lot of people asked for this, it's time for me to Review "Elvenefris".

Got Mayhem?
Proof that there is magnificent and absolutely jawdropping music still hidden underground. Essential listen and a one of a kind album.

"The Quaker"
The vocals and the very brutal parts makes me go away sometimes, but indeed an unusual album. wondering why it's not on the top 20 list here in MS.

Heh, underrated? I dont know about any other album with more than 50 votes having 9.3 (!) rating. And for a reason of course, this is the jewel of death metal.

Within Death metal I would say it is underrated E.G This album is amazing (to me at least) but it doesn't REALLY get that much credit compared to a lot of other releases in the genre, I mean I only stumbled onto this album by chance when looking into some obscure death metal releases. Most who know this album Praise it highly but a lot of people don't know about it

I remember when I was younger and early in my metal-dom I got this album and didn't like it much. The years have aged it like a fine cheese or wine and I can finally respect this excellent release.

I was impressed a few years ago by the incredibly high ratings of this album, not just here, but everywhere, so I listened to it to see by myself why, and I honestly got really bored half way. I never liked them. maybe because the progressive element doesn't really gets my attention

I love that the band name here was changed. For apparently no reason whatsoever. There's never going to be a Lykathé album.

Reminds me of Havoc Unit
