This album is a nice reminder that there's still enough room for freshness in myriads-style, derivative black metal. Trve and tired stuff this decidedly ain't.
The fact that some of these guys have been around for nearly two decades playing black metal (Endezzma is basically the reincarnation of a group called Dim Nagel) is clear from the beginning. While there is the stereotypical wall of buzzing blackness at the core here, there are so many layers and textures to this thing that every time you throw a track on you'll end up picking up on different, new things.
Which is a vaguer way of saying it's deep shit, really. It isn't spin-once, get hooked around for a bit then never come back kind of stuff (see Ragnarok et al.), you'll want to come back for more.
Luckily for impatient listeners like me then, there's also enough of a riff-first quality to make it penetrable upon first listen. It sounds a bit like what would happen if Watain found a theremin and a synth in an industrial freezer with a cool echo. It's straight-forward, buzz-and-stab black metal mostly, just with a quirked backbone that demands repeated inspections.
Excluding the "singing" at the end of "Hollow," and the lame radio-transmission/incantation thing at the very beginning, there aren't many toe-stubs noticeable on this; it flows in its evil kind of way from beginning to end.
