Passion. I suppose that's what it's all about with these one man black metal bands: pure, unadulterated, single-minded passion. Something about the isolation from the main networks of black metal and the larger society as a whole impacts the artistic vision and strength of these bands in simply magnificent ways. It's been 6 years since Elysian Blaze main man Mutatiis has dropped an album, but right away with his 2012 offering, he shows us he hasn't merely been twiddling his thumbs all that time. The result of the past decade's creative dedication has spawned Blood Geometry, an over two hour, double disc magnum opus of all the trademarks Mutatiis has become known for that also, indeed, takes such techniques to new heights.

Absolutely. Also:

  Yes i love this album. Its so hardcore and reminds me of some sick WP jams from the mid 90's. This album is a perfect 10, probably the best album ever next to Fatboy by Moe.

  Haha, I couldn't even get through this. It's not bad at all -- in fact, it's pretty damn alright -- but in this amount of time I can listen to Rain Upon The Impure and Foulest Semen of a Sheltered Elite back to back and get like 5,000,000X more awesomeness out of them. This thing would be a lot better if the segments were just cut in half. It's not a mess, but it's bloated as fuck.

  I've just ordered this stuff.

Probably it should take some time to get it here though...nevertheless I should not bother with this anyway

  The youtube samples are extremely decent, but the sheer length of this scares me away. Along with Dodsengel and Botanist...

Rating: 8 The more i listen the more i love. One of those really long albums that doesn't get boring

Rating: 9 Winamp labeled this as "General Children's Music." Made me laugh.

Rating: 10 This album was definitely worth the wait.

Rating: 8 While I was initially a bit skeptical about Blood Geometry due to its overwhelmingly long duration, that skepticism quickly ceased to be when I listened to the whole album in one go in the middle of the night with nothing but the darkness surrounding me. That setting enabled me to fully lose myself in the atmosphere as well as focus on all the details and shifts that have gone into creating this work of art.

The album contains enough variation as to never get tedious which I was really impressed by. The overall ambience and beautiful keyboard sections in addtion to the occasional outbursts of blastbeats was more than enough to keep my interest up amidst the all the bleakness and despair.

This is without a doubt one of the best albums of last year and as a matter of fact I have the Metal Storm Awards to thank for this discovery which would most likely have otherwise remained unnoticed to me.

masterpieces are those albums which i name...so till i listen this album it is not a masterpiece, ok?

  Damn not only this seems to be made with a lot of passion, the guy seems to have a genius touch. Everything about this release is prodigal. Those titles for the two discs are just fucking amazing.

Rating: 9 This might be the most massive album I've ever heard. What an album. Pretty much the definition of black/funeral doom metal. Lots of both of these genres to be heard, which obviously is a great combination.
