02:48 - mz they have portal influence for sure, a lot of it, but it is more than that.
02:45 - Fearmeister Okay so what is it influenced by then?
02:37 - mz if you think that they are just portal worship, either you have not heard them, or you are out of your mind :D
02:30 - Fearmeister mz likes it cause it sounds like portal which makes them unique
02:27 - Apothecary Really in depth shit, probably the best elaboration upon that scene I've yet read. Love it or hate it, fanboy over it or decry it all as DsO worship, one can't deny some powerful shit is going on there
02:26 - !J.O.O.E.! mz, I still don't get your interest in that band. They're so bleh.
II is pretty much what I thought it would be... 40 minutes or so of ugly, foul blackened sludge. Only instead of 6-7 tracks they crafted two 20 minute double-epics, tossing in some groovy psychedelia to boot. Rawr.
I've decided that this album is on par with Abyssal's recent effort, if not just a smidgen better. Truly outstanding work here, and to top it off (and to agree with just about everyone who's commented on the artwork), goddamn that is some fine artwork.
