I didn't know this band before 2020 album but I tried the older stuff then and didn't really care for it to be honest. Cosmic World Mother was good and this new album might be better. I think this is more melodic black but the few symphonic parts sound great. Standout songs for me was more melancholic Likt Törnen Genom Kött and symphonic Inverse Magnification Matrix.

Not my usual type of black metal but it has it's good enough moments.

Cosmic World Mother was an unexpected and extremely pleasant surprise. One of the best albums of that year. This one, I would say is at least on par with that one, if not even better.

Good stuff indeed.

Reminds me of Azarath's Blasphemer's Maledictions... I think it's the same artist. Zbigniew M.Bielak?

I have to agree about the cover art, it's fantastic, music wise it's pretty good too but it doesn't blow me away, despite having some excellent symphonic moments. The last track stands out for me the most.

Definitely some nice artwork. Paz brings up a good comparison with Blasphemers' Maledictions but my mind first went to The Desanctification and The Feral Wisdom. I think that has a lot more to due with the color scheme than anything though.

As for the music, I think this is a small step up from Cosmic World Mother, but still not anything amazing. I just don't feel wowed by anything I'm hearing.
