04:37 - Apothecary I'll still always prefer SYL over Devin solo work, but that's more of a personal thing than anything else, as City and Alien were both huge stress relievers that helped me through a lot of shit in middle and high school
04:24 - ScreamingSteelUS Deconstruction took a long time to grow on me. It was the first Devy album I ever heard and I'm still somewhat overwhelmed by the sheer density of it, but I've grown to love most of the album now.
04:22 - Apothecary Deconstruction was really good and funny as fuck but I've had mixed emotions about it lately because of all the guest musicians on it. Sometimes it feels a little too grandiose for its own good
03:16 - Coolingsrock haha it says its $328 to buy veil of maya's debut . yeah as if

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".
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.
