Not being a Death Metal maniac, The only prominent band this album makes me think of would be Hooded Menace. But I guess HM is just an enterprise in recycling rehashed old-school aesthetics. Akathartah sounds more esoteric and darker though, hence better!

Yes, Hooded Menace are similar and perhaps a bit rougher in sound. Akatharta have a far more polished production.
I do like Hooded Menace though. They've got an old-skool vibe about them, as have Akatharta.

I've just relistened to Fulfill the Curse, and there's an obvious underlying irony that is totally lacking in AKATHARTA. It's Much, much darker, and slower as a matter of fact.

I listened to the album and did not feel a thing. There are some good melodies, but everything is so artificial.

I've noticed it other times with death metal guys trying to create a doom album. Most of the times they succeed in making it sound like doom, but not feel like doom. Useless release.

It is true it is rather superficial, not conveying a lot of interesting, gripping emotions, but I like its darkness and heaviness. Those arguments are a bit short to justify a purchase, clearly.
