Very good indeed. I was surprised to find some melodic stuff in here too.

While I did not find this album to be quite as captivating and memorable as the previous two, it is still a solid release nonetheless. The bands trademark sound of groovy horror doom is for the most part intact, although I do miss the more gritty creepiness which particularly their debut managed to convey.

Listening to it right now and loving it immensely.
That sample in the beginning of Crumbling Insanity, is that from the movie adaption of The Fall of the House of Usher? Sounds very familiar.
