Staff review by

There's been a lot of blackened death craziness being served up lately in our beloved metal genre. Within the past two years especially, it seems like the style has been seeing a return to form of sorts, with the likes of Bölzer, Teitanblood, Diocletian and others dishing out albums that are pleasantly old school, yet with a delicious modern twist. Of all these bands, however, it is probably Belgium's Emptiness who stand as the most immersing and emotive of them all. Their 2014 album encapsulates this idea perhaps better than ever before, and is nothing short of excellent.

Rating: 9 I don't hear a lot of Metatron or Attila here. Vocals sound more like a really loud whisper of death or something. (if that makes any sense)

  I don't really register the vocals as a distinct sound on this one, though I can see what mz means if I actually listen to them. I mostly agree with Zaph though.

  Such a damn adventurous record. I guess back when I listened to it when it was release I was too focused on brutal and aggressive music to be able to fully grasp this. This is definitely a very fun and surprising record. Lot of fucking cool passages, rhythms, grooves and whatnot. Peerless music indeed.

Strange you dont find it fun. For blackened death standards this is one fun ride. The fifth track I think sounds almost like something the meads would write.
