The very picture of deep and sacred movements of the spirit. A rare and uncommon gem to emerge from the miasma of those who would claim this standard as their own. Incredibly important music, crafted in a season of great earnest.
Solid evolution of the band, and the greater practice of brutal death metal. Plus, they seem like regular dudes, and I find myself visualizing and wishing the best for them as people while I listen to this album. Truly an uncommon experience.
A gentle, yet unmistakably firm dissertation on the metaphysical dualism of mortal Man. An album of urgency-- a proclamation of wisdom, a trial of mortality, and a lamentation for those who fail to integrate themselves with the Whole.
One of those rare and precious albums where you stop and look about the corners of your mind furtively-- am I worthy of witnessing a worship so deep and private? As though we have caught the author unaware, in a moment of ecstasy, adoration and (at times) profound vulnerability. The catacombs are alive.
