Another year, another Kalpamantra-Malignant compilation. This one, as it turns out, is something truly special. Previous entries in this series of compilations made a very quick, often jarring, transition from dark ambient to harsher industrial and noise. Recrudescence handles this more gradually. Previous entries contained filler tracks that added little to the whole. Almost every track on Recrudescence is excellent -- and some are downright sublime. Simply put: The best compilation in years!
