23:39 - Apothecary Not sure if I'm really any sort of authority to answer that question, as my area of specialty within metal definitely ISN'T prog lol. You could debate that with Ivor or Ana (BloodTears) though
23:36 - Nimlot Isn't Haken enough to settle the question of influence?
Some of you may recognize Autolatry from one of our Clandestine Cuts articles of the past year, where one of my colleagues reviewed their Of The Land EP. I decided to take my time and listen to the previous album and EP of this young black metal band before diving into the depths of their sophomore album. That's when I met an inconsistency... Of the good kind! Man, they threw me a curve ball.
This track is fucking awesome. From the relentless and dissonant beginning, the Bathory-like clean vocals in the middle, and that beautiful, indredibly cool bridge that evolves into a great post-black-like crescendo.
