Kudos for your first review, man! Everything is said and well said; I happen to stumble once in a while across this album on YT, and each time I venture giving it a go, it manages to please me, but essential as the debut? no, no. I don't see me buying it, it's plagued by too many, rather vacuous and rather pretentious parts.

I feel, for this album like a bunch of others (from Pallbearer, Ahab, Mournful Congregation...), that they've a symptom of a bias: they seem to offer everyhting a non-Doom fan is expecting from Doom, if I can put it that way: something to get some rest from more brutal music, a soothing outlet. These rather vapid albums in particular must provide the calm and cotonous break they're after. As for Bell Witch, being supported by Profound Lore helps also. :/

Oh yeah, I had forgotten about that one. Well, let's say kudos for keeping a perfect funerary rhythm then.

This is extremely strange, but I did not get bored at all with this album. In fact, I enjoyed it from beggning to end, which is something really extremely rare. Probably my best listen for the year!!!
