If you liked "Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice", You're going to love this. Its so far the same sort of religious sounding primal, hateful sounding Black Metal that DsO are loved for. Rythmic, amazingly fast, brutal, artillery-like drumming, razor-sharp guitars that sound evil and melodic both at once, non-existant bass (as far as I can tell) and DsO's trademark medium-pitch scream/growl.
I've heard this referred to as "Si Monumentum" meets Blut Aus Nord's "The Work Which Transforms God", to be honest, I can see where the people referring to it as such are coming from, however, it's not a bad thing. I really like this album so far.
The standout track (so far) is track 4, The Repellent Scars Of Abandon, is amazing. brutal drumming, melody by the bucketful, but still an opressive, raw, hateful atmosphere, broken somewhere between 7 and 8 minutes in by a beautiful melodic piano (at least I think it's a piano) part, followed by an almost Meshuggah-sounding melodic BM attack, before the pace slows down again at about 9 minutes, into a mid-to-fast paced crazy as hell section with tremolo pickings, melodies, counter-melodies and insane drumming that climaxes at about 11 minutes when the song suddenly cuts into an eerie piano melody. This is good stuff.
Highly worth the purchase, in my view. For fans of DsO's work, Blut Aus Nord's stuff, and any sort of straight up BM.
