I've been on the Dirge bandwagon ever since wondering how the hell can they top their last masterpiece. One could argue Hyperion is Elysian Magnetic Fields II but I have no problem with a band sticking to their trademark sound as long as it continues to be distinctive and interesting.

Can see why it is compared to Godflesh but not as thick as that. Also I would call it in the vein of Industrial doom rather than Atmo sludge but thats just me. Very good album indeed and the title track is the highlight here.

I keep putting off listening to this and I'm not sure why. I think I'm gonna change that tonight.

I know you'd like their previous album too...

Dirge are my favorite "post" - whatever band at the moment.

I'm still big on EMF - a great album that, and the only reason I really made sure to get in a few solid listens to this once it was released. I can see myself ultimately liking Hyperion better, but both albums are great.
