Well, i don't need to say too much about Wrest, Leviathan, his one-man project, is well-known in the underground circles of the black metal scene for some time now and "The Tenth Sub-Level Of Suicide" and "Tentacles Of Whorror" (especially the first one, at least in my opinion) have been acclaimed as masterpieces by the black metal audience that searches a bit more and won't sit down and wait for the new "messiah" that the big labels will present them, simply because the future of black metal lies in the underground.

Never could figure out the appeal of this album. Poor sound, annoying vocals, way too long with only a few odd decent riffs here and there. Pretty sure in 2003 there were much more innovative and interesting things going on in bm. Bit of a fossil this. The following album was a mild improvement as it had some nice moments and better sound.

Back in 2003 this album was disregarded by most people into black metal, and rightly so I'd say. A terribly generic bm album this one is. Follow-up Tentacles Of Whorror is where Leviathan started to get interesting.
I am still puzzled why 1-th Sublevel started to be hailed years and years after its release. It was terribly generic upon release and still is to this day and age.

93% from 13 reviews on MA Listening to Tentacles of Whorror again and it is significantly better, and has a signature sound. Unlike this, which could be from any generic 90s bm band I would think.

I actually quite enjoy this album. Even still, as much as I like it, I think Leviathan has done much better than this in all the albums that have followed--not sure why this seems to be most people's favorite.
