This sounds promising, from the one song that I listened too.

The album is available digitally via antonymrecords.com, Spotify & Zune. It's supposed to show up on Rhapsody and iTunes shortly aswell.
The physical version haven't been released yet, though it's supposed to be released early this spring so I'm guessing march-april.

Since I might be a bit biased, since I'm in the band I'll refrain from any comments regarding to the music, however here's the first review of the album: http://autothrall.blogspot.com/2012/01/waning-human-condition-2012_26.html

Terribly underwhelmed by this. :/

I like the production though - it gives it kind of an underwater effect or something, as if you're drowning. But the music itself seems rather harmless.

Every time I listen to this I say to myslef that this is more of a Blackish Post-Metal album rather than a Post Black one

I was recommended this band a few years ago, being touted as experimental black metal. Maybe that's always stayed with me but I've never been big on this band.

I don't know if I'd label this as post-anything. Sounds like pretty typical pseudo-atmospheric black metal with hints of progressive elements.

Miserere Luminis were a lot closer to post-black than this.

Apparently a great deal of people on the 'net seem to think these guys are in some way "different" or whatever. I dunno, I just fail to see what they bring to the table that other black metal bands don't.

A progressive edge? It's not like that's unique...

Yeah, actually I recall MS had them down as experimental black for a while too. Ultimately it's pretty standard fare to my ears.

It has this raw edge and a lot of drum patterns that sounded "Post-like" to my ears, nothing experimental about them though.

I don't read reviews on Metal-Archives... and autothrall is one of the reasons why.
