There's not much that can be easily understood in the bizarre, nightmarish world of Terra Tenebrosa. Then again, perhaps there's not much that's really meant to be. After two full lengths and an EP, fans of the band may eagerly be wondering what the next step is, and if The Reverses provides any clues that make the picture these eerie Swedes paint any clearer. Come, children, and we shall find out by traveling through the rabbit hole yet again. And by "rabbit hole," I mean vortex.

A return to the dronier, more dark ambient-influenced sound of The Tunnels, or more along the heavy, sludgier lines of The Purging? Hoping for the former, but either way, bring it the fuck on

So you're not actually a bearded shaman opening his third eye through music?

It is neither of them, or maybe a combination of both.
Definitely it is their most industrial sounding record, with odd melodies here and there. It does not have the subtlety of their debut, as there are less slowly developing sections. At times it sounds a bit bludgeony, not on the same level of primitive man of course.
It is definitely better than their 2nd album, and better than what I expected. Still not sure if I like it more than their debut, but one can say that this new record is more complete and diverse, and less one dimensional in a sense. A very accomplished record on my ears.

Your response comes at a funny time, it almost feels like I haven't heard it and you're telling me what to look forward to. I've already had this for promo review for 3 weeks myself, so I have some idea now of what's going on here (that's not condescending by the way, just noting the irony)

I'd agree with you, I feel like this is essentially some sort of middle ground between The Tunnels and The Purging (more of the former though, which is what I was hoping for). A few more spins could make this my favorite from the band as well

I'd say their debut beats it, but only slightly. This is such a good album

Excellent album, the moment when Vindsval sings in French during the last song is just sick.

Edit : my bad, Vindsval is singing in the last song apparently, not MkM.

Great album but for me The Tunnels is still clearly their best.

Agreed, the whole last song is pretty sick.

Ok, fourth playthrough right now before my review comes, and yes, Mahdi's comment is seconded. This is indeed their best yet. What a fucking maelstrom

Definitely my favorite album of the year so far. Every little aspect in the music melds together so fucking perfectly

I don't know why, but I really don't like this record compared to what the band put out before. Probably the vocals.

Fire Dances is a great track. Blut Aus Nord's touch is awesome.

I think this is the best TT album, better than the debut.
