Staff review by
In 2014, the Belgians in Emptiness threw out Nothing But The Whole, a thundering album of black and death metal that combined the two quite seamlessly, with a delicious sense of atmosphere to boot. Being almost universally praised in underground metal circles, how exactly does the band follow up such a powerhouse release? Easy: by going for something different.

Would I dig this shit? Anyone? Should I even bother?

OD, i hated this album. could have and should have been better. you could check out all the stuff people said in the comments above about this album. Based on your favorite bands list, i think you could like this

i actually i didnt hate it after another listen. nowhere near as good as Nothing But The Whole, and much less metal, and more ambient
I've got good news! That gum you like is going to come back in style...

But a bold experiment with a new approach that's both inspired and (for the most part) successful? You bet.

That's "Nothing But The Whole".

In comparison, I would say "NBTW" was better produced than what they try to did with this new disc(even new direction?!). Though I don't find any single "dull" moment here which took me off the flow. Another great qualitative material which had loads of fun for us. Just like previous releases, couple of spins are mandatory to digest it.
