This album has me enthralled. Everything is so tightly packed, so intricately layered, and relentless from start to finish. There is no chorus, no verse, in fact barely anything repeats in the songs whatsoever. They have an ever so slightly thematic introduction to new movements as the songs progress, singling out one instrument for a measure before the rest of the band joins in. This requires uninterrupted and focused listening, and it is rewarding as new layers of guitars and vocal variations present themselves after repeat listens. This band is buff, and scary, and no one is doing black metal on this level. 5/5.
