This never left me with much of an impression upon my first listen but it's a grower for sure. I'm still not completely convinced it's the album for me (perhaps too dissonant) but I do have respect for their abilities. I'm also getting a Deathspell Omega vibe from it too.

So how the hell do I search for this in English? Is it on Spotify or Bandcamp?

Edit => Found it on Bandcamp and it's a freebie so that's a happy new year bonus.

I like the oppressive feeling you get from some parts but then it gets too hectic for my taste. I haven't listened much Deathspell Omega but I get some Oranssi Pazuzu vibes here and there. Vocals are okay. I'm not sure if I'll give it a second spin.

Beast of an album. Loved it, especially for all those well-placed tempo changes that kept things constantly fresh and exciting. The ambient elements fit well into the overall production. I do imagine I'll be listening to this album again.

Just so you know, the translation of the band name is Hoplite, like the Greek foot soldier.
