A new Blut Aus Nord album inevitably raises anticipation high among black metal fans. Why is this, exactly?

It was clear to me after the first couple of listens that this is a huge release but it kept getting better with every spin, revealing the details of the absolutely remarkable work done by Vindsval here.
The incorporation of the cavernous Death Metal riffing combined with proper Doom Metal moments, with the return of the drum machine and the top notch production.
One of the musical highlights of the year and a contender for the top spot of my end of year list.

This just keeps getting better the more and more I listen. REALLY solid work, it feels as though they took basically everything they had been playing around with on the past few EPs (split with PHOBOS, Aevangelist, etc) and kinda threw it into a blender with some MoRT-y and TWWTG-ish techniques. The result is pretty impressive.

I also must disagree with people saying that it's good but that it doesn't really stick to you, This is totally memorable, I don't know about you guys but some of the riffs on Chorea Macchabeorum and Ex Tenebrae Lucis especially have been getting stuck in my head over the past few days.

I've read somewhere that this is just mindless noise and below the band's standards. It could fit for MoRT perhaps, sans the improper "mindless" tag, but this? I'm hearing a lot of great mind-bending riffs in true BaN fashion, of course it's dissonant but also entirely memorable and guess what, even enjoyable all the way through. Production-wise might be their best one, sounds huge and towering and just fucking glorious. My only complaint might be its short duration, only 30 minutes (minus the interludes), but it's so intense I feel like I've listened to two albums simultaneously.

^ MoRT is fucking amazing. It has way more emotional impact than this one. Not that either are "below the bands standards" or "mindless noise", but I would never say that this one even gets close to MoRT. It's good and parts are pretty phenomenal (Abisme), the production is also pretty amazing. But it lacks weight, though I don't know how they would achieve it necessarily
