A one-man black metal project with a Latin name could be a huge warning sign. Fortunately, with Portland, Oregon's cosmically themed Mare Cognitum, it is not the case. So grab yourself a Crowler of Ecliptic Brewing's Starburst IPA or Oort* Imperial Stout and rocket off to the lunar surface and beyond.

Good album, it ha scold grimness, it has voyage of sound, flowing black metal. Long songs, harsher vocals, complex idea. I like artwork and idea about album, seems its based somewhere in cosmos, other planets what does exist in another galactic. Good work.

Can't say there is anything crazy original here but each song is extremely well crafted, accessible, and is a clear extension of the Mare Cognitum sound of previous works. I think this album as a whole is probably his best work to date, if you've liked his previous albums this is a must listen as it is highly consistent throughout the album whereas other work has been more hit or miss in regards to quality of each track. This is probably my favorite album so far this year

Love this album. Took the effort to listen to his whole discography and will have to say this album is his finest effort. The songs are well crafted. The song terra requiem has a solo in the middle which is some of the best guitars I have heard in a long time.

This is a hair shy of a 9 for me, mainly due to the repetitive drumming. I think hiring a session drummer for variation/personality purposes would elevate the compositions and give each track more individuality, but this is still an incredibly well crafted album. You can tell a lot of thought went into the songwriting and recording process; everything seems purposeful and balanced.

Sounds like what would happen if Opeth played black metal --> pretty epic!
