I haven't really felt their music before maybe because the vocals need time to get used to. Now vocals have started to sound somewhat distinctive and interesting. Atmosphere is heavy and sometimes beautiful. I like harrowing song Diseased and more melacholic Light Reveals Our Wounds. Also The Ground Still Burns starts so small and beautiful. Either this is much better album than their last or I'm just getting used to their music. Maybe I should listen to earlier albums again.

Until now in March, this album has been my second favorite among the 30 albums I've enjoyed the most this year, after Insomnium's album.

This album is the best Tidal suggestion I've received so far.
This year has started off great for us - Melodeath enthusiasts:
Insomnium -> NeObliviscaris -> and now this brilliant surprise

Very very good record, although I prefer a bit their previous output. A bit too much spoken words for my taste.

Very happy to see this group, underrated in my opinion, in this year's top. The album is amazing. Track 3 is tremendous especially the last two minutes, but still in my opinion Fata Morgana is a superior album.

Is it just me or do they sound a lot like Insomnium?

Remarkable! The title track, Light Reveals Our Wounds, and Sirens are emotionally outstanding!
