Eastern influences in rock-derived forms of music have come quite a long way since the days of George Harrison and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. With metal in its modern state, we definitely have plenty of bands that follow suit (Nile, Melechesh, and Rudra, to name a few). The problem I find with a lot of this Eastern-infused metal, however, is that the metal almost always seems to trump the Eastern elements, and being the Oriental f̶a̶n̶a̶t̶i̶c̶ ̶ nerd that I am, I find myself looking for bands that strike more of a 50/50 balance between the two. This year, I was lucky enough to get my wish, in the form of Cult Of Fire's sophomore release मृत्यु का तापसी (that's "Ascetic Meditation Of Death," for all you heathen bastards who have not yet mastered the holy Sanskrit).

While I actually agree with you regarding Erik's standards of music...


Dude, you make it sound like I'm D. Monique 2.0 or something.

One need only to look at your lists to prove that wrong, especially your debut album list.

I also liked this album, though I only listened to it once and haven't touched it since. I should try it again, cause I really remember liking it.


Out of all my lists, the debut album list is the worst representation of my taste. A ton of albums on there I don't even like all that much, after all. Hence why in some cases I listened to other people's opinions as to which albums deserve to be on the list. In the end, there will literally be no-one who thinks that all debuts on the list are great. Obviously this list is the best representation of my taste in music. Though I haven't updated it in months, but I will do so when I feel like it (when I expand it to 100 albums, probably).

I'd rather someone voted how they actually feel about an album that scoring it on what they think it deserves. That's one-step away from LeKiwi-level vote manipulation. Would make no sense for someone to give a high(er) score for an album they absolutely don't like.


Okay, you're right actually. I guess it just surprises me how someone like mz (a BM fan) can rate this a 5.

Fair enough, but a 5 score equals mediocre/not good and is pretty harsh for a quality record such as this I'd say.

It seems that if I want to go by your method, I need to give every tech death album a 10. Music rating does not work that way for me. I don't care how much, from technical point of view, an album is well written/executed etc. My honest opinion is that this album is bad.
And if you are surprised by this rating, you should have a look ate my rates of TRoB albums

That's not my method at all. I judge music exactly the same way you do, but I said what I said because of you hating/disliking this album, Sadness' and Dolorian's debuts, which are all excellent albums in my opinion. Yes, it's totally your right to hate them for whatever reason, it's just that I was surprised you hate it as I would've guessed it to be your cup of tea.

  Can't believe I missed this gem. Are the album lyrics written in Hindi too?
