Hello Metal magazines and reviewers, are you all SLEEPING!? Without question one of the best releases this year. This would be just a solid 10 if the production was a little bit better (clipping), but the compositions are still superb.
Favorite track: The Dwellers Beneath.
State of the art riffing and song writing. Great harmonies, mostly a little oriental sounding and solid crushing drums make this album so special. If your looking for the slightly other kind of death metal this could be for you 🤘
JORDI R. CARDONA
An amazing record, with an outstanding voice and a powerful and expressive battery and mesmerizing guitars. I love how powerful is the sound and the alternance of the medium speed of the songs which makes them more impressive.
Favorite track: Coffin Texts.
Absolutely crushing record from start to finish. Very catchy, deep and powerful with amazing grooves and beautiful soloing. Brutal journey into the ancient world. Top quality death metal and highly recommended. Excellent song written and top notch performance. 10/10.
better than I even imagined, I'm so grateful you all worked so hard to share this and the impact of having musicians from such culturally different areas is so significant and unifying
Favorite track: Upon the Pagan Lands.
