i thought this would suck because of the single but i listened to parts of a few songs and i now think it will be awesome. i just wish it didnt have that terribad album cover and the kick drums could be less clicky.

Lacks cohesion maybe, need 1 more go at it

i could hear the grind influence that they mentioned. a lot more experimentation.
the first 2 tracks suck, but it definitely gets better moving on through the album. solid 4 for me

I've heard it five times now, and I've got it at a 4.5. It's a toss up between this and A Forgotten Land for 2013AOTY at the moment.

The Ash Borer E.P. is better than this and my fav for bm this year. Other than that, this has not been a great year for bm so far and I'm not saying this is aoty honours either. Maybe top 20, don't know yet though, I like this quite a bit but I have to give it another few listens. I'm in the minority with Mammal being their best album so take my opinion with a grain of salt, I obviously don't have a clue about anything.

Don't go all Noctus on us bro

I actually prefer Mammal to White Tomb too, but I think this one is better than either of those

Twilight, Deafheaven, Darkspace, Woman is the Earth, Arizmenda and a ton of other groups have yet to release their stuff for this year. It's shaping up to be an excellent year.

And Mammal was kinda meh.

zaruyache, 60% of the bands you've listed produced shit, even Fell Voices felt kind of dull. My biggest disappointment off the list was Leucosis. We will just wait and see what the rest of your list comes up with.

And Crysis knows what's up, this album has way too many inconsistencies and post-black poop to be considered anything above a 3.5 (which is pushing it).

I'm still undecided with this album. I feel the exact same way as Wizard but I believe that there
are a lot of very strong moments on this album that deliver everything that people like Noctus are
claiming to be consistent throughout the entire piece. I'm stuck at a 4/5 right now and White
Tomb
is still my favourite AoP album.

I won't dismiss the fact that the album is much less conventional than a typical metal record and so
maybe I have to work at better understanding it. But none of the listens I've given the album so far
have erased my doubts.

Wiz is a ball of sunshine as always :-] And the Gilead version of the Regnum Saturni is a lot clearer than the European mastering, so it's still potentially better than you think. They just have to stream the rest of it.

where this album doesn't really have two tracks of the same ilk it's anything but inconsistent, and the more you listen to it the more that becomes apparent because the atmosphere becomes more discernible

and i don't think this has much in common with any other post-black release at all, even their last two albums are very different from this one, they changed the entire songwriting aesthetic completely

i really don't know where the majority of your comments are coming from. if this were altar of plagues' first release i doubt as many people would be calling it post-black metal

I will take your word on it, nice bit of info too ; ). Sorry for being a doucher.

Noctus, the atmosphere is consistent throughout but (and I'm going out on a limb here) the industrial tinged tracks (Burnt Year and scattered industrial ideas throughout a few other songs) are what make this appeal to me. It's their more straightforward tracks such as "God Alone" that offer nothing in the way of uniqueness to the album. And we would have called this post-black metal if it came out before White Tomb, it's got all the dynamics of post-metal present. It's that these guys have just found clever ways to disguise recycled ideas.

this is basically word for word the ad hominem argument you make literally every single time someone disagrees with you

I reallllllyyyyyyyyyyyyy liked this album way more than I thought I would, considering how different it is from white tomb. I think a bit of a stylistic transition was in order though... as much as I love 15+ minute ambient metal jams, I'm glad they switched it up a bit. And that intro, hawtdayum

you could make this argument about any band that change things between albums, it's a completely meaningless argument

this is basically word for word the ad hominem argument you make literally every single time someone disagrees with you


someone says it's post-black poop
i say post-black isn't the focus
this is the ad hominem argument i always make

uhh yeah okay
