22.11.2012 Not strictly metal anymore. if they ever really were; their krautish, noisy interpretation of black metal seems to have been put on hold for the time being (aside from the first track; a black metal number), but this is arguably album of the year nonetheless. If you have any love of Skullflower's early droning, noise rock days and krautrock's trippy psychedelia then this should be right up your gasse.

Just out of curiosity which music were you referring to in particular? I'm guessing Amon Amarth numbers somewhere among that list


first and foremost Amon Amarth

but also
Insomnium, Be'lakor, Swallow The Sun, Bloodbath (although I love them), Omnium Gatherum, Scar Symmetry

Yea I to have a soft spot for melodies, regardless of repetitiveness But at least the riffs change at a faster pace...

And I thought doom was repetitive and dull...

Clearly this band has had some affect on you though, or you wouldn't have bothered coming back to reiterate what you already said ages ago. Quite clearly isn't that boring

  I found this one rather dull and thoroughly unimpressive. It lacks something that would catch my fleeting attention.

Caught me! Well I fully admit to returning to rate the album because I felt that other albums on the top of 2012 were more worthy....So I rated the album what I thought it deserved based on my opinion...that's about it

Rating: 10 Really liking this one, I just wished they did not include the first track.

  They're touring Europe with Lussuria? Love both projects, but that strikes me as an odd pairing...

Rating: 10 I'm finally cutting the first track out and giving this album a 9. More stuff like this please

Never heard of Lussaria, but they're playing at a venue 20 minutes walk from my house with Stephen O'Malley and Lutine (never heard of them either) but I'm quite excited for it.

Rad! Did the gig occur yet? If so, how was it? Lussuria is a dark ambient project with many releases on Dominick Fernow's Hospital Productions. I'd recommend giving "American Babylon" a listen if you have not yet done so.

  This live easily ranks in my top 5 gigs of all time. It's not even worth describing.
Troy Killjoy - 14.04.2014 at 13:13  
  Now that you mention it, this would be a pretty intense album to experience live.

Rating: 10 Fuck it, just neglecting the first fucking track and giving it a 10. Amazing stuff to say at least.

Yeah, it's easy to ignore it. The rest is perfect music.

  I love how the opening track is regarded as the worst shit eva For me it's one hell of an epic, intergalactic bm tune.

I'm not saying it's amazing... but I do not understand the hate either.

Rating: 9 Call me crazy, I actually think the opening track is on par with the rest.

I am not saying it is completely shit, but it is just so incompatible with the rest of the album. It could be a good song on a more regular, ordinary album, but not here.
!J.O.O.E.! - 13.11.2015 at 22:04  
  What mz said. I don't hate it at all, it's just superfluous.
Joe Zombie - 14.12.2015 at 23:24  
  Unfortunately this album is far too repetitive and long-winded for my taste.

Rating: 10 OK, I finally joined the party. Hopefully the new album will live up to this one

Yeah, I've been getting heavy into these guys lately, and as excellent as the opening track here is.... it's just very incompatible. I've noticed when I listen to this album very often do I just start with the second track and then let it play through from there.

Rating: 8 The bass on track V is the absolute tits. Also, have to agree with everyone else that the first track sounds wildly out of place compared to the rest of the album; I feel like there's more BM tremolo guitar and blastbeats in any one minute of that song than the rest of the album combined.
!J.O.O.E.! - 25.02.2016 at 18:54  
  Nice to see this album claw its way back up to an 8 on here. Aluk Todolo are basically doing Skullflower's early genius work now, which is great seeing as Skullflower now seems content just to make fairly average noise music these days.
