23:16 - Czerny Reiter I only have III in physical format and have listened to Sentinel and Gnosis. Didn't seem like it would warrant delving much further.
23:13 - 3rdWorld Yeah I agree on it. It is mostly a problem with his latest for me. His early 2 albums were really sweet.
23:08 - Czerny Reiter I appreciate what the guy aims to achieve, but it is way too meandering and the BM parts are not that engaging. Gorgeous ambiences do compensate somewhat, but the heavier sections are often jarring or plain uninspired.
01. Wrathful Deities 02. Figures Of Chained Spirits 03. Curse Seeping Through Flesh 04. Gateways To The Cemetery Of Being 05. Poisoned Tongue 06. Spirit Of Noxious Miasmas 07. Adorned & Iridescent 08. Crypt Born & Tethered To Ruin
I find them decent at best. Lots of better bands from the style.
Those tracks were more than just decent for me but I cannot refute your statement about the existence of loads of better bands. Bands in this style which I am familiar with could be counted on the fingers and I happened to check them just very recently
Grave Miasma, Cruciamentum, Diocletian, Corpsessed, Temple Nightside, Ignivomous, Antediluvian, Vorum (earlier stuff), Witchrist, Hellvetron, Muknal, Embrace of Thorns, Dead Congregation, to name a few off the top of my head. All vaguely from the same area of death metal. Some more doomy, others a bit black etc.
Have a look through here and this thread. Lots of similar stuff there.
