When you're doing a combination of two different styles, each style needs be executed well for a good album to come out. I find the black metal elements on the album rather monotonous and boring to be honest. They could have definitely benefited from a real drummer. The mix leaves a lot to be desired too--it sounds a bit washed out, not crisp at all. The hypnotic post-rock parts add a lot though to the black metal when done in tandem and are executed fairly well. The last track, ".neon" is basically the exact same as the closing track on their self-titled, which I find a bit frustrating.
