I'm kind of disappointed by Part I. I will need to listen to it again, but it feels like they traded the brilliant parts of Blessed He With Boils for melancholic accoustic guitar songs. I get that it's part of the story they are trying to tell, but I got bored really quick while listening to it. I'm gonna give them another chance, but for the moment, I'm disappointed.

I was truly expecting my nth disappointment of 2017 after hearing the first two singles. I couldn't be more surprised and pleased. It's definitely not as hard hitting as their debut it's just as deep. I still prefer the debut, but after my 4th listen I'd be happy to listen to either. Still sounds like Xanthochroid - can't wait for the supposedly heavier Part II.

That's what Sam said on the Facebook album release live stream, so I think they'll live up to that

Wow! The Part I is bombastic as hell. I am not usually into this over the top cheesy theatricality, but I must admit it's executed perfectly. The quality of composition and sound is superb. Fucking epic!

Never judge an album for the intro's. And don't get me wrong, I believe this one is a good album, but the intro's made me expect that this was going to be the next big thing. Saying so, let's give it some spins to the second part.
