Listening to it now, tried to avoid as many previews as possible.
Looks like meat is back on the menu boys!

Not digging it all that much. It's rather unimpressive honestly and it sounds closer to the various atmospheric black metal albums that've been released in the past 5 - 6 years than to a full fledged WITTR album. That vital ingredienet that separated the band from the rest of the pack, whatever it was, just seems to be missing here.

I acknowledge though that it's been 6 years since WITTR released an actual BM album (and a DAMN good one at that), and that with the abundance of atmospheric BM bands around these days it's getting increasingly difficult to carve out a truly distinct sound in the style. Could be kinda like how Deathspell Omega's latest left a lot of people unmoved purely for the fact that now there are so many Deathspell Omega-alikes out there, so their music doesn't feel as groundbreaking anymore

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

WITTR are one of my favourite bm bands out there and I'll always hold the Two Hunters/Black Cascade/Celestial Lineage triptyque in high regard. That said, I wansn't blown away by this one: it's solid and alright and has a couple of wow moments, but just lacks meat - not as majestic as Celestial Lineage and Two Hunters, nor as intense and relentless as Black Cascade. Anna and Steve Von Till are good additions but the album as a whole feels a bit too short and meagre.

And it's likely going to be praised just about everywhere as one of the crowning achievements for black metal this year

My friends on RYM are already going nuts for this. Eh. I kinda envy them.

You shouldn't worry so much about what others think

It's less about caring what others think and more about being concerned that this album is going to overshadow other, better written black metal albums from this year simply because of the big name that's attached to it and not due to the actual quality of the music (or lack thereof, rather).

But hey, what else is new? That's the way the game usually goes

Haven't been following the scene too closely, have any names you could throw a brother's way?

Skaphe, The Ruins Of Beverast, Progenie Terrestre Pura, and Endalok have definitely put out some of my favs
