Staff review by

First, this album is supposed to be 'extended black metal' but it's all but black metal! Closer to progressive cosmic doom/death metal in fact . Anyway, Visions From the Spiral Generator is a fuckin' great release! I like this album so much that my first feeling was to hear an Opeth's side project . You want to hear incredible stuff? Vintersorg - also the name of the singer/guitar player - makes all vocals from death grunts to angelic voices. Great performance dude! I know he's also Borknagar's lead singer but I've never heard that band before, so it would be difficult for me to compare Vintersorg with Borknagar. Talking about Borknagar, the drummer on Visions From the Spiral Generator is Borknagar's drummer too . And talking about line-up, it has to be said that Steve Di Giorgio - former bass god of Death and Testament - plays on that album too. Thence tremendous bass parts

The Vintersorgs continue on their path towards progressive sound with this album, which is reinforced by using the power of Asgeir Mickelson and Steve DiGiorgio. In the end, we have another great album.
