23:59 - Netzach Czerny, I get your point but I'd say the same about "Ashes"... It just gets too droney and gaze-ish in sections. Limbs and Not Unlike the Waves are awesome though... The Mantle has this "whiskey fueled regret"-feel I adore
23:55 - Netzach Btw, AMA on Reddit with A.A Nemtheanga if anyone's interested [link]
23:51 - Czerny Reiter Ashes Against the Grain & Marrow take the cake for me. The Mantle has some sections where it loses steam and gets all too mellow.
23:45 - Overrwatcher The Mantle is beautiful. It's not technical or experimental, it's just a well-crafted album made with simple instruments. I show it to non-metalhead friends and they love it.
23:12 - Netzach 3rd, compared to those albums, The Mantle contains a lot more post-rock and acoustic/folk.
23:10 - Netzach Agalloch are so damn uneven though. The Mantle is fantastic and I also really like Marrow... but as for the rest, meh.
Dutch death metal crazy bunch The Monolith Deathcult will unleash their new and fourth album Tetragrammaton next May 10th (May 14th in North America) via Season Of Mist, their new label. The cover artwork will be unveiled soon, but the band was eager to share an important piece of information: the narration parts on Tetragrammaton are done by Orion Pax.
According to the band, "this vile assault on the fundamental canons of human decency, progress and civilization will take no fewer than 59 minutes and 40 seconds of the precious life you have left on this wretched clump of rock."
Tetragrammaton will follow a dry spell from the band since the release of 2008's Trivmvirate. As on Trivmvirate, mixing duties were handled by Guido Aalbers. While you wait to know more, you can check out some studio footage below.
