Damn, nearly a year ago since I discovered this. Still as good as it was. Probably my fave album from the genre. Whatever genre this is. It's pretty much perfect in sound, production, vocals and riffing, from my taste's perspective.

You're alone here harping on how good it is. I'll have pity and listen to this.

Probably one of those bands that to most people is "Eh, it's ok I guess." Then again most people have terrible music taste.

I was in the middle of typing that I didn't really understand why you liked it so much, and then the intro to The Origin Of Uncle Scrooge came, and then I though oooh reminds me of good Khold, then the song really started, and then I though oh no back to normal again so I though I should calm my bosoms before posting, and wait until the end. So I did.
But I do have weird love stories with totally meh albums. I can understand.
It must feel good in your fortress of solitude and self-confidence .

I only enjoy records made by bands that haven't even made them yet.

Yeah, we might have reached the limit of ourselves.

I'm playing a few tracks again and comparing them to what I have on this almost empty hard drive. They remind me of something very specific, although I find the album generic enough, but I can't put a name on it. And I don't have the BM collection of real and pirated copies I used to have. Help. It's driving me mad.

If the only thing you want to correct about it is the death part, I heard that myself and should have been specific. I'm just sure you're going to come up with more complicated. Tell me.

Nah, just vaguely blackened old-school death really. Nothing complicated about these guys.

My thoughts and everybody else's I bet. Why did you annoy me on such a little omission?

Anyway. I still haven't found what it is that it reminds me of.

Definitely blackened death metal. Can't say that it remidns me of anything in particular. It's not unique either. Just very solid stuff. I liked some of the kinda melodic solos/leads here and there.
Dat drumming though.

Ok, here is your bucket of attention, you whore.
Can you stop driving me off-topic for Pete's sake? You're like the older kid at the pool that drags the younger ones to the deep end, and lets them cry until the lifeguard comes and yells on the younger kid for going there.

But, before posting this, I looked for it and found it. I knew it reminded me of something specific, although we all agree it is generic, and there is absolutely no debate on the genre. It was a mistake of mine.

Arkhon Infaustus.

Bitch.

Hey, I can't help my magnetic personality *shrugs*

Arkhon Infaustus, well I've only heard Orthodoxyn. I'd be lying if I said one reminded me of the other though.

You're lucky I know how to swim.

The old Arkhon, on Valium. I said it reminded me of them, not that they're very similar .

Yeah I listened to it last year and enjoyed it, but actually I cant remmember much from it, except for being some sort of blackish OSDM. Should listen to it again.

To add some variety to the different users commenting on this: pretty fucking tight album, but it doesn't really do anything to make me too excited about it. Still glad I stalked Joe's votes and found this, but not quite as good as I was expecting.

Oh wait, you just said that in the comment.

Your 10's and 9's actually. Listening to Hypno5e right now (had never heard of them before) and I really like what I'm hearing. I'll probably give this band another shot tomorrow, as there were quite a few moments that I really liked, and it may just take a few subsequent listens to click. Good album regardless.

For me this is just an album that has a certain sound and a certain balance that strikes perfectly. Certainly not a unique album by any regard. It was just lucky really.

I don't remember much from it, but I do remember loving what I heard. I'm gonna have to revisit this with proper attention.
