This is quite hard to listen to.
I feel the best thing you can do to save your band when you can't play and don't have any professional gear at your disposal to get a good sound is to play Punk Black. It's an easy excuse for lack of talent.

I didn't get till the end, but 14 minutes were enough: it's not even really about a lack of talent than a lack of vision; the voice is atrocious and bland, the music is super repetitive and rather dull as well and the changes in pace sound totally haphazard.
I don't get any emotions whatsoever from it.

On the bandcamp page, it says it's blackened stoner metal... ah ah ah... it's just crappy progressive black metal to me...

I don't get the meaning of the band's name... Is there something to explain about it?

It's just their invented background - Varic's supposed to be their universe's destroyer of worlds, and the band honour his advent. Pretty standard stuff, really, but I do actually like the EP.

Thanks... It could make it a bit more interesting, but the music they play isn't an appealing support to this concept.

To be honest, I do not really hear any stoner here. Yes, there is fast bouncy rhythm but it does not sound stonerish at all.

Anyway - the vocals suck, but the music is not bad, though it's not outstanding either. I also like it, but it's still just mediocre, slightly interesting stuff, not worthy of the high mark.

Btw, the next EP with part II has better vocals and overall sounds much better than this (still not much above average)
