Staff review by
Xasthur is the quintessence of suicide, a woeful lament in the midst of nowhere as you lose yourself deeper and deeper in the fields of solitude and everlasting oblivion, forgotten, forlorn; dying. Malefic managed to use once again his blades and from the blood pouring, painting scarlet the pale skin, another wish for death was cast upon humanity. "Subliminal Genocide" is the title of his new crimson diamond, through Hydra Head Records this time, and i personally consider it the best release of this magnificent US black metal band so far, it's everything Xasthur have always been and in the most representative way, presenting the ominous and oppressive visions of Malefic in such an utterly expressive way.

Nihil's Maw
To Violate the Oblivious is probably his best album, but Prison of Mirrors may be his best song.

Pain in the ass
I guess its kind of hard to rationalize why some Xasthur album is better than the others when they sound so alike. This is probably one of the best black metal albums ever made, that doesnt mean that I think that the other Xasthur albums are worse.
"Every night, full of drugs and liquor, I see, floating above my bed, the Devil.
This woman in white dress, Satan Herself.
She's beautiful. She's there for me. Translucent.
I'm in love with her."
