22.01.2012 A description? What? You want a description? It's simple, really. Go in a cave, a really deep one. Now get relentlessly crushed by tons of rocks. That'll do the trick.

Or, in other words, it's some dissonant avant/post/sludge/drone stuff. Or something else. But who cares, as long as it's awesome?

Impressively crushing stuff.

This is one of those releases I thought I would be the only to even hear about so it's good to see others getting in on the action.

I tried it...didn't like it so much
You would think this would be right up my alley too...

I'll give it another spin...

But when have you really ever been into dissonant music though?

Unless it's the traditional dissonance heard in black metal, not really ever to be honest.

That being said, I still gave this a mid-7 because... well, I know it doesn't suck. But it just doesn't reel me in.

Just to say, I only noticed the dissonance far, far after being crushed my the massive heaviness of the music, and the claustrophobic feeling it creates... My main incentives, I must say

...

Lol. I've been wondering where your avatar image came from and now I know. I went to youtube to check this out and half the vids have the album art and the other half have a similar image to your avatar. This whole time I thought it was just some fan art of a LoTR Ringwraith, hahaha.

This is really interesting stuff though, I will definitely have to get the album and listen to it in better detail; youtube upload played through laptop speakers doesn't seem to be doing this much good since it's so ambient, dissonant and multi-layered...

Rating: 9 Kinda reminds me of Deathspell Omega's prayers, especially the song Through The Eyes Of The Maninkari (best on the album imo). I really enjoyed that, thank you for the continuous awesome staff pick.

If you are talking about the Decapitated release... I dunno... It's just happens to feature a guy with a mask in the center of the pic.
Beside from that, not that similar.






...Nah, not really.

  This is a very atmospheric album!

Yeah but I wouldn't say that it is a rip off. That was my point.

Rating: 8 Through the eyes of the maninkari is the best track. Very good album.

  Unfashionably late to fully listening to this but it just warps my mind. Holy shit. I'm with Evil Chip, that track is pretty addictive.

Rating: 9 Still mind-bendingly brilliant. Nice to see it with so many votes, and positive ones too. When I first heard this I couldn't have imagined it would appeal to many people but it certainly seems to.

Rating: 9 My most preferred cacophony by them
