Staff review by

Bands that choose to take literary works as the thematic inspiration behind their music can tend be pretty hit or miss. It's an interesting idea, this fusion of artistic mediums, but it's not always executed in a way that makes the music feel relevant to the writing. Fortunately, BM Frenchies The Great Old Ones are proving this year that they know very well how to do just that, and they're doing H.P. Lovecraft proud yet again.

The album is not perfect but then again what is. Still, I get more enjoyment out of it then of most albums so it has to be 10. Havent heard a band who master the dissonant stuff as good as these guys tbh.

I'm fine with your rating. There's no need for an explanation.
