01. The Synarchy Of Molten Bones
02. Famished For Breath
03. Onward Where Most With Ravin I May Meet
04. Internecine Iatrogenesis

So here we are. Six years and two EPs later, the mighty Deathspell Omega have returned with new material. It's not "Doomspell Omega" or a reggae black metal album, and sure, one could complain about a rehash of old ideas here. But I'll be damned if it isn't nice to have these titans of French black metal back on the throne showing all their emulators how the game is really played.

Go and get it.

This situation reminds me of Sunn O))) and Kannon.

Come on dude, it's not that bad, Kannon is pretty shit.
This is the water, and this is the well
Drink full and descend
The horse is the white of the eyes, and dark within

Both of these albums are very predictable and therefore disappointing. Definitely not bad. I just prefer to listen to their earlier discography.

PS. Sorry for the late reply.

Okay so after listening to this and Drought a lot more recently, I've actually come to enjoy them much more than I initially did. The last track is especially good, in my opinion. I would have a problem with the fact that this album seems a lot more cold and inhuman sounding than the rest of their discography, with almost all trace of black metal rawness gone, but I think it actually works pretty well for this album, and even fits the album art quite nicely.

Yeah, after not being that impressed at first I now love this album.
The first and last tracks are especially good.

I hope the next DsO record is something completely new that we haven't heard before. Like Jooe said, a doom or death album. Now that would be fucking awesome.
