Patience is a virtue, particularly when it's rewarded with delights such as Etemen Ænka.

Sì-XIV gives me serious Mastodon vibes and has some really awesome riffs toward the end of the song. Definitely stoked to hear what the rest of this album will bring.

Didn't know the band but this record grows and grows. Definitely a highlight early in the year that will have a spot on my personal top list.

Favorites at the moment are Omega Severer, Towers and Satuya.

Checking out their debut next. If it's anywhere near as good, I got a new favorite band!

The singer really really grates on me. I can't stand that style. I almost listened to this 4 times, but I couldn't get through the 4th spin. It's a shame because musically it seemed pretty solid

Superb guitars, such groovy and innovative riffs. My favourite track will have to be the court of the matriarch. By the 8th track title, Mlechha means untouchable (caste system) in India.

This right here is amazing. it's atmospheric and epic, melodic while being heavy and overall great.
it's also Mastodony in some parts, and the singer is very good.
favorite songs : Satuya , Sì-XIV and Towers
Satuya is just EPIC.
one more thing .... the RIFFS
if you like atmospheric sludge / post metal you'll definitely love it
( I'm big on album cover arts and this album has a really cool one so that's another + )

Very good album except for the extended length of certain tracks.

In the beginning I was made of clay. Then I bit the apple and they changed me to metal 🤘

Took me a while to appreciate it, but yes, probably better than the debut. I just can't get into the vocals 100%.

This album is great!!! If it weren't for the boring interludes, it would be even better, I feel like those three interludes really break the flow of the album and I see myself always jumping those tracks. But what a great album nonetheless.
