Staff review by

The cover-picture being as bright and out-there as it is, and considering the vaganus on it, I expected this to be a whole lot weirder and up-its-vaganus than it is. Fact is though, the brand of black metal that Acrimonious play is actually pretty straight-forward and accessible.

The problem is, as a whole, it's all pretty dry. When it comes to black metal with an emphasis placed on atmosphere (over, say, the stab-you-repeatedly-with-daggers black metal I normally veer toward), as it is here, iciness and coldness, or in WITTR's case, raininess, captivates me more. Maybe it just fits better with the ecology of my home state, but the lost in a foggy forest thing seems almost essential for it to work for me.

Yeah really good stuff. Shame the review on here sort of misrepresented it.
