It wasn't since Morbid Angel's Illud Divinum Insanus's joint review that the staff collaborated on a single review. This time it isn't because the album is polarizing. Far from it.

Whit new albums, I listened to a z order, or shortest if I have x minutes to work. This weekend few on yt and bc at work.
I read musclassia reviews, so I tried pay tribute to him so I listened it at work. Will listen at home in better quality as mobile YT.

To me its sounds as Bewitcher use kalmah vocalist. Good heavy metal what is not heavy as genre definition, good sound, speed influences and harsher vocals, what was good suprise to me. I thought it will be cleaner more PM style.
Best song 6 rivers, and Lucid Screaming

I don't give good comments because he is ms member, if it would be bad i would say it.

Best album from England or maybe UK, already I know I will listen it. I will buy it later when snow be gone, when I will have more cash, or no I will buy it at Monday when I am free.

I like it, now I wish Broken Dagger come back and re unite.

Finally listened to my MS colleague's work... And I'm enjoying it a lot - great riffing, great aggression, excellent atmosphere.
"Six Rivers" and "Lucid Screaming" both are the best songs indeed, but the whole album is great. Keep it up guys!

At first I was really let down by the poor production, but after a few minutes I got used to it. I'm happy I kept listening because I rather enjoyed the album!

This is a great record, congratulations! it's very creative, with lot's of great riffs, great vocals, and fantastic drumming and bass work too The production is a bit of a let down at first but I've managed to put that aside, and the rawness has started to appeal to me slightly, and I'm really starting to like the guitar tone.

What I really do like is the atmospheric interludes at the end of each song, aswel as the short opener, they add a very good atmosphere to it, and I found it helps the album flow better too. "Lucid Screaming" is the stand out track for me, but the rest is also decent.

Excellent job

Mate, you're the first one to highlight the title track in a comment/review, that's the one I wrote for the album! I did rip off Enslaved a bit on it, which looking back on I wish I'd tried to differentiate a bit more, and the ending slow bit repeats too much for my liking, but things like this are all parts of becoming a better writer

We are hoping to get album 2 recorded over this summer; we initially started last year, but had issues with the initial recordings we made at the first studio we tried, and have been distracted with a battle of the bands the past few weeks (which ended with a tragic loss in the final on Saturday), but that's over now so hopefully we can make progress and have it out before the end of the year. Not sure there's anything on that album that's super close to Asundre since the lion's share of the writing here is from our guitarist Jess, but I think there should be a couple of songs in particular that are enjoyable if you like that song. Otherwise, I have an EP concept very early in the pipeline that I'll be driving the writing a bit more for, hopefully out by the end of 2024 but you never know
