Well this is a strange one. Predominantly black metal, these Englishmen have delivered a perplexing album that seemingly knows little in the way of boundaries. It isn't a very polished or musically tight album, but it is very interesting in the journey it provides, with maybe just a glimpse of greatness in there hiding.

Slayer666 is lame like that if he doesn't check out this album and band. Too much genius I would say.

I did check it out. Genius not found, lyrics possibly excluded. Hints of brilliance here and there, mostly in those melodic leads, but no genius whatsoever. High-ish 7 stuff, no more.

yeah man
I'm not sure how I feel about this. My first Meads album and I've been left bewildered. I have to listen to their stuff a lot more before I can describe my opinions... certainly an interesting listen that's for sure.

I just got Damascus Steel and I found it quite accessible (if we considering their craziness that is)... Pretty awesome shit so I recommend you that one.

I found this one to be the most "listenable" to use the term broadly. Many people's complaints about this band are that they found their sound awkward and stunted whereas I found this one flowed in a more conventional way than their other records, even if there is a bit going on on this one.

I'm yet to listen to this one in its entirety just a few songs from youtube (specially the intro+first song) so I just commented on my recent experience with Damascus Steel which I found easy to listen.

Well I found them all easy and enjoyable myself, the last two especially for their adventurousness. Damascus Steel is excellent though.

Well, technically the two latest are this one and Damascus Steel. Genocide something is just an EP.

How the hell did you reach that conclusion? I never specified albums at any point, clearly EPs count under what I said

This album is so good, its beyond my comprehension. It's so strange in a quirky way, and it absolutely blows my mind how profoundly awesome the arrangements are on this. Also thanks for the tip to the codex, that was really interesting, especially the Sonderkommando one. Quite amazing when a band puts that much effort into themes behind an album.

Finally checked this
It is both diverse and coherent. Needless to say that it is a very eclectic mix. The melodic moments were pretty surprising ans sweat (not in a sugary and cheesy way).
