Two things are unfair about Grave Mounds And Grave Mistakes: how high the bar was set by previous records, and how unfair it is for other bands that they have to compete with A Forest Of Stars.

China was a neat
Last one was a masterpiece and will be hard to live up to but this sounds promising.

First listen: Doesn't compare to the last two records. But they actually did some interesting stuff and my fear of them just becoming like an Ashenspire were crushed. So no disappointment. Needs more listens.

Must say that I mostly agree with you.

But I'm sure I'll get to like it more on future listens

Absolutely loving this record.

Is it just me - not that I'm any sort of authority to quote - or does the middle part of Premature Invocation veer into outright... rap country?

Another worthy addition to quite a consistently high quality discography. Needs more listens to decide if it's better than its predecessor but for now I feel like it's at least on par.

Ehm... I'm gonna need another listen because I did not notice something like that at all.

The bits of narration still rub me the wrong way at times, but there's no denying the brilliance of this band.

Maybe best ABM band over in a universe, much better as some Norwegian ones, even those what Che mentioned in his article like one month ago. Its nice, as I was expected from this one.

I like having my ridiculously high hopes for an album fulfilled, will never get tired of the way those guys do their Black Metal, one of the few bands that can claim that no other band sounds like them.

I don't think this is as good as the previous 2 albums, although to be fair the bar was set pretty high. Better than Thieves, about on par with Rebirth. Maybe better?
Now I'm curious about the Scrofula trilogy.

I think i prefer the previous album for being more memorable to me, but this album is still very good.
