Extreme metal Easter eggs hunt. Can you find them all?

Here's one of the few albums from this year that's actually deserving of all the hype it's been getting. The sophomore effort from this Swiss foursome is amazingly detailed and incredibly varied in its songwriting. At times takes a slow and trancelike black metal approach, with surprisingly beautiful solos to accompany. At others, pounds you into dust with a furious death metal crunch, and at other moments still is extremely relaxing in its attention to melody and atmosphere. A powerful blend of personalities, and a worthy addition to any extreme metal fan's musical library.

Perhaps one could say the diversities are... a contradiction?

This release has one of the lamiest packages ever. It looks cool. Yes. But it is really hard to pull out the disc from the sleeve

Shit. Its Metastazis though, and will be fucking gorgeous anyway. He also did the art for the remastered version of their debut. Would be fucking cool collection to have all 3 albums now.

I don't have the debut, which is nothing special imo. But owning 2/3 of their discography is still a pretty good result
