If I had to choose one single band that in my opinion left a mark on metal in the '10s, it would be Hail Spirit Noir. I am so glad that it looks like they will be leaving an equally significant mark during the '20s as well.

This is more of psyche rock and less of prog metal. Not my cup of tea. But liked the track The first ape of new earth.
In the beginning I was made of clay. Then I bit the apple and they changed me to metal 🤘

This is a fantastic release! I like the old ones too, and though this is really different, core elements that make this band great are still there. Now they've even thrown in a few new ones and shifted that psych part from 70s to 80s influenced. Somehow this album makes me think that this is what Opeth tried to achieve going from Black to Prog. They failed, Hail Spirit Noir nailed it! Not worth a full 10, because of the argualbly too long interludes and the second track is pointless but after that, starting from Alien Lip Reading, this is absolute fire!

Nope, boring psych rock at best... I find no reason whatsoever to listen to it a 2nd time.

Interesting and unique change of pace from their earlier albums. Very proggy, synths are very prominent here. Excellent.

I recently listened to the other Hail Spirit Noir albums, and this is definitely the best album of them.
