No more words needs to be whisper for now."

Never heard of this band. When I look at the discography I don't exactly find it sexy. But I then saw "Leviathan" and came back here to ask:

1- what kind of bm do they play? Is it good?
2- Are they similar to Leviathan?
3- If both the answer to the previous questions are positive, what should I start with?

I've only heard one album, I think it was the debut. It's been a long time though and don't recall exactly what it sounded like but I do remember thinking that they made great sounding interlude, instrumental tracks that were better than their regular tracks (though they weren't bad either). Not that Leviathan ish I don't think. Possibly quite cinematic sounding.

Okay, then I'll just play it very safe and listen to the splits with Leviathan and Nightbringer. Thank you.

Sounds kind of like generic, Emperor worship at times. Lacks its own identity. Vocals are deeper and grittier, not unlike Ascension or IXXI, but the performance feels a bit sloppy. Not enough command of enunciation, etc. The songwriting is pretty boring and I honestly tuned out about a third of the way through. The nice, folky interlude in the middle brought me back for a bit, but too little too late. Plenty of aimless tremolo lines and exhausting blastbeats.

No, I'm referring to the fact that your review is talking about stuff that isn't even in the album.

You ARE aware that half the tracks are ambient pieces, right?

Fear, I just sat and listened to the thing. If I were doing an in-depth review, I would touch on all of that. But "Nereid," "Ma-Ion," Lunar Transcendence," the later parts of "The Awakening," and "Therionic" more than fit my description. That's no small chunk of the album. The ambient parts were a nice break, but nothing new either.

Okay, I was just making sure. Saying 'the folk interlude' when there are like, a gazillion non-folk ambient interludes made no sense.

I probably should have been better at describing that part. I heard sitars or something like that and my tired brain just said to call it "folky." How dismissive of me.

Nor would I call this "Emperor worship" when this isn't even close to being symphonic.

I really liked the music a lot both from a songwriting standpoint but also in terms of production, quality fucking stuff. I do however think the ambient pieces, while ominous and in their own way very well made, somewhat ruined the flow of the album. I just don't see the point of making 7 or 8 minute long ambient pieces and putting them right in the middle of the album, it completely took the air out of album for me and I wish they would have changed the arrangements a bit so as to perhaps spread it out a bit more instead of leaving it in there in such big "chunks" so to speak, although that might defeat the entire purpose of the ambient pieces.

I also think it made the album a bit longer than it had to be, and I am generally a proponent of shorter, more "economically" made records. most records simply tend to lose me a bit after the 45 minute mark, and i think it's a shame in this case because the music so fucking great, when it isn't being preluded by an ambient song that's twice as long as the song itself.

Still, terrific record all around and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has a thing for bombastic and well executed black metal.
