Staff review by
I am not going to hide my bias. Alexander Von Meilenwald is a crafter of some of the finest blackened doom metal on the planet, and I am most definitely a fanboy for The Ruins Of Beverast. Having been somewhat disappointed, however, with the project's previous Blood Vaults effort, I went into 2017's Exuvia with some pretty high hopes of the music redeeming itself. And by the grace of Nyarlathotep, those hopes have been met.

Finally an album deserving of being #1. Knowing this site though it probably won't even stay in the top 20 long.

Yeah it's either gonna get downvoted eventually or some mediocre mainstream album's gonna come along and get a lot more fellating with 9s and 10s and knock this off its throne

So you're not actually a bearded shaman opening his third eye through music?

Probably my favorite record of the year right here, though admittedly, I haven't been keeping up with new music as much as I'd like. The second track is a damn masterpiece.

The more I listen to it, the more I think it may be their best. Wow.

There are two things I'm sure of right now: This is better than Blood Vaults and The Pythia's Pale Wolves might be one of my favorite songs by him ever.
He who is not bold enough
to be stared at from across the abyss
is not bold enough
to stare into it himself.
