21:07 - 3rdWorld Can't remember any black elements there really but my memory is quite vague except the fact that I didn't like it a lot. Not sure why, maybe it was a bit of middleground between brutality and something else.
21:01 - !J.O.O.E.! I think you're thinking of a different record. The EP is some pretty dense blackened death. Less varied than the album, but focuses more on crushing, foreboding atmospheres.
20:59 - 3rdWorld Kinda looks awful so I'll leave it at that, hehe. Damn fine album really, that ep on the other hand sounded somewhat prog melodeath-y or whatever. Didn't enjoy it much, thats why didn't rec it. :P
20:55 - !J.O.O.E.! The big one on the bottom left? Looks like planet sex-toy to me :P
20:54 - 3rdWorld Pretty sure thats a star, not a planet. =P
20:52 - !J.O.O.E.! That was the one I was asked to review. Was good, but found the drums overbearing. That artwork is better than the original one they had, but looks kinda cack up close. Also one of the planets looks like a fleshlight, so...
20:49 - 3rdWorld Don't remember much how it sounded but I didn't enjoy it much I guess. Definitely prefer this to that, and this version of the cover art too. [link]
