One of the most agonising things is uncovering a gem of an album only to come to the cynical realisation that it's probably going to be several long years before you get treated to another taste, and that's if the band continues. Certainly, you can always replay the album, but albums that resonate with me have always engendered a distinctive craving which is only momentarily satiated by new material. Over the years this tends to subside, but I'm hardly exaggerating when I say that I've been eagerly waiting for this moment for nearly four years.

Found out about their self-titled album not too long ago and it already managed to really become one of my favourite records of all time. Therefore I can't really hide my anticipation for this release.

Dissona's previous album was a real treasure. I can only hope that this will be just as good!

Here's the latest track, Odium: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRI8RDmOLTM

I'm fairly impressed by the track, but that's probably not a surprise. I basically like everything this band even attempts.

Very accomplished and mature album, but not even close to the level of quality they showed on the debut or even on Ten Masks. My expectations were probably too high for the album, and it really isn't all that bad (production is great, lots of really fascinating moments).... but the songwriting is not nearly as engaging as their earlier work for me. I also really admired Dissona for the amazing main vocalist, who doesn't get nearly enough time to shine on this record. They really put their heart and soul into this one, though, and that is obvious upon even a cursory listen. That being said, I imagine this will likely be a minor disappointment to some who have followed the band along the way, even if it might open the doors to some new listeners. 7.5/10 for me.

Very good. Takes some work to get through (over an hour of music), but once you do it it's really worth it.

They pledged to do a cover of whatever the top-tier campaign backer requested, excellent choice:
