23:59 - Netzach Czerny, I get your point but I'd say the same about "Ashes"... It just gets too droney and gaze-ish in sections. Limbs and Not Unlike the Waves are awesome though... The Mantle has this "whiskey fueled regret"-feel I adore
23:55 - Netzach Btw, AMA on Reddit with A.A Nemtheanga if anyone's interested [link]
23:51 - Czerny Reiter Ashes Against the Grain & Marrow take the cake for me. The Mantle has some sections where it loses steam and gets all too mellow.
23:45 - Overrwatcher The Mantle is beautiful. It's not technical or experimental, it's just a well-crafted album made with simple instruments. I show it to non-metalhead friends and they love it.

This is sounding a lot better than what I remember these guys sounded like.
Or perhaps i'm becoming too open minded...
Really? I haven't heard this but they were already great.
Well I only listened to that album with a toilet bowl on the cover before, and i remember thinking that it sounded somewhat like mr bungle which is kind of 5 or 6 on my rankings from 1 to 10.
But that's been a long time ago... More than 6 years i believe
This starts very weakly but the starting from track 6 everything gets awesome. Really love the sinister vocals on the final track (and some other ones). Not something very novel for DFD but I cant really complain considering the originality of this band.
