Such a great list needs to be commented on. Not that I have much to say at this point since you seem to have your bases covered. I didn't know there was an Undersmile split, must check that out asap.

Thanks!

That split is really interesting seeing as Coma Wall is an acoustic project by the members of Undersmile which makes for a nice contrast to their usual bone crushing sound that is presented on the second half of it.

Hehe.

Even though I was very disappointed with the album compared to Angst, it's still not complete garbage in my opinion.

Haha yeah I was kidding. But I like how it didn't turn into an immature showoff between fanboys and other music fans in numerous forums and communities.

Yeah, I gave it a shot and concluded that the whole atmospheric sludge/post stuff is not my cup of tea. Not a bad album by any means though.
