After 3 listens, very strong release (again). Tracks 2 & 3 are particularly awesome, excellent use of keyboards, vocals and ambiance. Certain passages throughout the album remind me of the debut (with improved prod of course haha).

It appears this was sort of a "trance/ritual" trilogy along Apparitions and ESM, and it actually fits very well. Overall, all three have a similar vibe, production and feeling. Wonder if this means something different for the next release!

Mostly ok stuff, not as good or interesting as Empty Space Meditation. "Trail Of The Conscience Of The Dead" is fucking amazing though.

I hope they move onto a bit more different stuff now, but I doubt it.

Quite unique sound as always and thats great but they should drop the mindfullness/meditation stuff. More black metal, hate and aggression would make their sound a bit more dynamic imo.

That's not really the type of black metal Urfaust seem to go at though, at least not to me. They're less of the "fuck mankind, destroy them all" type and more of the "I'm going to lock myself in the dungeon away from humanity and make a deal with the devil" type. I think it's still hateful honestly, just in a more moody, self reflective way.

The ideology isnt so important, I was refering more to the music. Their overall sound is as I said unique but imo they should add something to the pacing to create some dynamics, as it is now it isnt challening enough. This is clearly a band with lots of potential that could have released a mastepiece on their way. Ironically they are a band thats full of surpises that nowadays makes very unsurprising albums.

Oh yes, strongest cut here for sure. I love this sort of doomish sound they've been embracing lately

Honestly I don't think they could. Slow and/or monotone riffs is what Urfaust does best to push the vocals. The sort of floaty stuff I remember Empty Space Meditation as is something they could do more, but aggression doesn't seem possible without a complete change of sound, character and ideas.

Agreed, I get bored sometimes with this release, it just needs to either trim the fat or add something a little more interesting than "AHHHHHH" vocals underwater. The 4th track is awesome though.
