777 - Cosmography is without a doubt the quietest and perhaps the least challenging of the entire trilogy of Blut Aus Nord. The dissonance and abrasive wall of sound lightly vanishes and gives way to other new elements. You can expect to find electronic beats, spoken passages, apocalyptic chants, industrial machinery, clean vocals, crystal clear delayed guitars and even some little amounts of doom. Is it eclectic or heterogeneous? Hell no. It's actually a really articulated record and mostly everything is laid in its right place. Is it the best record of the trilogy? I don't know but it's a really beautiful closure. I like to think this kind of music is like seeing a movie, since the visual aspect is a really significant part while listening. In those terms the climax of this trilogy is not disturbing or creepy but rather cathartic and desolating. It's almost like a post-apocalyptic scene where you can see the whole modern world falling apart or at least the human part of it.

Can't really say that I agree with that to be honest. Definitely not one of my BaN favourites but still very good in its own right. Epitome VI especially might be one of his most beautiful songs, the end gives me complete chills. Still of course not a patch on TWWTG or Mort.

There are definitely moments I love on the album; those really euphoric bits, but the whole album feels like an excuse just to have a few of those, and the bits that aren't those are just really drawn out and not very interesting, or just plain awkward sounding. The whole 45 minutes just felt like about 15 minutes of actual songwriting tbh. Kind of a problem with the whole 777 trilogy in my opinion. Way too much material put out in such little time, and it shows.

What you write here I feel exactly with the Memoria Vetusta parts to be honest. Too much material and not enough intersting material to find. Not with the 777 triology though. 777 desanctification must be one of their most complete works to date. Lets just agree to disagree then

Desanctification is definitely the best of the trilogy. I think still the one I would give a solid 8 if I was still scoring (pretty sure I gave them all 8 when I scored albums).

Desanctification is very trip-hop/electronic oriented and is very memorable I agree. But I've heard the 777 trilogy long and hard a few months back and I've felt that they are all solid. I really enjoyed this a lot more than the others though, this feels just sad, ominous and epitaph-ic. In the end, it just seems that I like every subsequent release in the 777 trilogy more than the last one. Definitely BaN's high point though. TWWTG and MoRT are really good but I prefer this trilogy even more as of now.

Desanctification would get a 9, while this one would probably get a solid 8 or so. Definitely have to relisten though as I dont know if that opinion still holds.

Desanctification is a nine for the first track alone if you ask me. To me it sounds like Massive Attack going black metal (probably because of the beat).
