After numerous attempts to try and listen all the way through, I'm glad I bought this album. Mark and Misha are some of my biggest inspirations when songwriting and recording. All of the Nobou Uematsu callbacks hit me right in the feels and all of the blackest of black metal sections bring forth inner demons I have been meaning to combat for quite some time. The only complaint I have is that there isn't more. 8.7/10: Would buy again.
