  I just listened to a single track, I. VITRIOL. I was Impressed by the apocalyptic atmosphere of the song, which makes me deeply attracted to listen entire album.

  Sweet, the whole thing is on YT.

Rating: 8 This makes me think of the best French black metal bands, which is a big compliment. Very good stuff.

Rating: 8 There's definitely a Deathspell Omega intensity here, especially behind those vocals.

  I saw Odium Nostrum uploaded this to Youtube a while back. Guess I'll be giving it a listen.

  Really good music, but it's true, sounds a LOT like Deathspell Omega. I think I'd rather listen to them, it's enough for me.

but no all of DsO albums have the quality of this album. In fact, I think just kenos and Si Monumentum Requires can touch the majesty of this one.

  I'm gonna have to get on this.

It is also my most favorite album of 2013 and I actually am considering voting this up. Shit is too intense.

Rating: 8 I was actually considering voting this down as I haven't returned to it much haha.

Because nobody cares about you.

You're just jelly 'cause I didn't give your staff pick a nine.
Troy Killjoy - 26.07.2014 at 05:46  
  You know me too well.

What did you think of this by the way? I remember listening to it when discussing nominees for the MSAs and thought it was solid but unremarkable.
Ilham - 26.07.2014 at 05:56  
Rating: 9 Steering it very unnaturally back into topic huh? Haha. Or maybe not. I don't trust you.

No but seriously, it felt like a young BaN atmosphere-wise having sex with DsO's. The intros just scream BaN. I just wish there were more work on the vocals. It's the most expected component of this. Not bad, but would have loved some edge. I think we ended up left with very few good bands from the hardcore DsO-cloning of the late '00s. Looks like there is still some hope left in that department of bm after all.

Edit: I am listening to it again, that nine is justified. Had it been released this year, I'd have said it's my favourite.

Really? This has probably one of my most favorite BM vocal works. A top 3 for sure.

Yeah I'm not saying they're no varied, or that they sound bad. I just think it needs a little crazy.
