One of the most original and cryptic doom bands, no doubt. The new album, as hard as it is to get, is at least on a par with their previous releases.

Yay, more whale metal for me to go scuba-diving to. Seriously, I'm very pleased with this. Not quite up to the level of Oceanus in my opinion, but a tad better than Celaenus Fragments, so I'm a happy camper.

I couldn't ask for a better combo this week. This and Level 3 made my week.

Looks like they've abandoned the Unda Da Sea motif for that H.P. Lovecraft schtick. Not sure how I feel about that.

They have always been Lovecraftian.

What Marcel said. Their previous two albums had an HP Lovecraft theme as well. I don't see what Lit thinks they've changed on this

Oceanus had a more ocean-like theme to it, didn't it? The whale song, the album cover, et al.

Nope just as much Lovecraft as this one. Just look at the song titles.

Well, I've only read like two pieces from Lovecraft, both of which were short stories and had nothing to do with the Cthulhu mythos.

At any rate, I'm thinking to myself: Wait, what do I care? I don't care about images and lyrics.

Is the album at least worth checking? I liked Oceanus, so this seems right up my alley.

Sounds much better, now that I'm finally all relaxed and can listen to them from my speakers instead of on-the-go. Nice chillax music

Damn, this is awesome funeral doom. Enjoying it a lot. The atmosphere that these guys create is amazing: mysterious, dreamy, haunting and relaxing.

That song on Youtube is great, not sure where I can listen to the rest of the album though.

Normally this isn't my sort of thing, but it's just so... mesmerising.

Until now it sounds pretty good, probably I will like it more since I never heard something like this before, definitely a unique band.

Make sure yo check out their previous then. Personally I think it's better but also a tad more unique.

I did, and it really was better... I never thought I could find such a damn good argentinian band, now I just need to find a damn good band from my country and all will be perfect.
