When terms like anti-life, nihilism and suicide become part of the atmosphere music evokes or, to say it better, when music is the outcome of anti-life, nihilistic and suicidal emotions then you really know what to expect, something extremely deep and utterly depressive that leaves scars on the listener's soul. Malefic, the one and only sullen soul behind Xasthur, knows well the art of suicide and how to present it through wailing and bleeding ambient-oriented suicidal black metal soundscapes and this is what he did, for one more time, with "To Violate the Oblivious".

Rating: 9 Late night Xasthur session. I may actually like this record more than Telepathic With The Deceased.



Could be the best song he ever wrote.

Might as well. Xasthur was hardly know for being varied so if you like this you'll probably appreciate all his other stuff. This remains my favourite though.

Rating: 6 I have tried this a couple of times and it's not working that much for me. I can see why others love this album but for me, it actually passes without having much of impression of any kind on me. Enough to say that my most favorite track is the simplistic outro.

Rating: 7 Although it's really a good album I liked his other album, Telepathic with The Deceased, more.
