I never cared for their albums' art, none of them! Very messy, and generally rife with pointless piles of elements. They seem like coming from an amateur with access to photoshop who tries hard to show off.

Emblematic of the music, really.

Finally got around to buying it and it does not disappoint. I still need some more spins, but out of the gate it sounds almost perfect to me.

This album didn't wow me with its melodies and songwriting as much as the first two albums or even urn did. It's still a very impressive display of skill and musicianship. My favourite here will have to be the last song Anhedonia with the wonderful vocal work in the beginning of the song.

Most definitely another solid addition to an excellent discography. Both "Misericorde" parts are great. Though I'm not big into their album art style (exept for Urn), I think the abstractness suits the music and lyrics well. Not nearly as good as the masterpieces of Citadel and Urn but still full of good moments. Probably tied with the debut for me.

Incredible, they played Plague Flowers as an encore, unfortunately Persefone wasnt able to make it:
