Rating:
8.6
For all seasoned members of our beloved death metal cult, shock value isn't a thing anymore. The walls of sound are hardly impenetrable and all the pieces fall into place with ease. Our attraction towards more extreme and intricate metal is fueled by our desire to go back to that time where chaos was the norm and order was our goal. Yes, my comrades, despite what others might say: there is order in this maelstrom of visceral riffs, disturbing drumming and monstrous vocals.

Looks almost like a dig at BaN's Thematic Emanation of Archetypal Multiplicity.

Rating: 9 Just finished listening to it for the first time. It's too chaotic to be judged just by one spin but I definitely can say that I'm really satisfied. This album is much less one dimensional than their (great) debut. Huge improvement in the songwriting had happened as there is enough variety included here. I personally did not expect IR to be an evolving band, but this had taken place. Moreover, two lengthy tracks included are, with great buildup and progression. For a long time, I wondered what would happen if the chaotic and dark version of death metal offered by bands like portal/ IR got doomy and this album is the closest thing to the answer of this question I've faced. Final track is one of the creepiest thing I've ever heard and such a prefect closer.
Candidate for album of the year right here. This is exactly how I like the my death metal.

Rating: 8 What mz said. Probably the best thing to come from Impetuous Ritual or Portal since Outre'. At times it reminds me of Blut aus Nord's 'Liber' records.

  Gonna listen to this asap and get finally start reviewing again. By the comments this seems like a good way to re-start my writing.
Alex Fenger - 15.04.2014 at 00:18  
Rating: 8 I'm with Joe in saying that, aside from Outre' (and possible Swarth), this is the best thing from Portal/Impetuous Ritual. My only real complaint would be that some of the guitar lines sound slightly misplaced (such as the mini guitar solo at the 1:30 mark in the second track)
Uldreth - 15.04.2014 at 00:20  
  I srsly need to listen to this.

Loved the debut, which is weird casue I am generally not a fan of crypt death metal, though lately I've been getting into Ulcerate and Flourishing.

But I wouldn't call ulcerate or flourishing cryptic dm to be honest and their approach to songwriting and production is very different from cryptic bands.

This sortof was a shorter although more incorrect way of expressing myself, it is true that Impetuous Ritual has a more "crypt" atmosphere than the two I mentioned but this doubles as both "crypt" dm and post-dm. I guess I used the term quite wrong here .

I still recommend checking it out. There are lots of cool guitar solos that come flying in out of the blue in the first 3 tracks or so. It is a rather interesting listen. The first 3 songs are quite a bit different than the rest of the album. The pace changes with the 4th song, and then the finale is quite diabolical as well.

You may not enjoy it, but I'd say it's worth taking the time.

A fair bit more than I did Portal, at least. It seems like something I can appreciate more. I've only tackled it once though, I'll have to see if I can unearth anything further out of it from repeated listens.

I just thought your ears were clogged , but I'm glad you're giving it a second go. It's not the best of the style by any means, but it's a damn good album in my opinion.

Perhaps I heard a bad copy last time or something. Can't really understand how it sounded so differently to me before.

Rating: 8 Although, to be fair this may only sound fantastic now in juxtaposition to the latest Periphery album I just inexplicably tortured myself with... or is it: with which I just inexplicably tortured myself?... doesn't matter. Ear bleach all the same.

tbh, I prefer this to everything that portal/IR have done up to now. Definitely one of my most revisited albums of the last year and one of the ultimate cavernous DM records I've ever heard.

It's the best by IR, but I prefer everything Portal have done
