4.0 excellentManaYoodSushai | January 3rd 13

Excellent post-rock shoegaze that is bleak as well as beautiful.

4.0 excellentBob Vance, Vance Refrigeration | February 17th 11

like brandon said this is really more shoegaze/post-rock with strong bm influences than it is pure black metal but i obviously liked it a lot more. it manages to be beautifully desolate and refreshingly clean and a whole bunch of other things at once. the chillest bm this side of Cold Body Radiation.

3.0 goodB R A N D O N S C O T T | February 7th 11

Hypomanie follow up their great She Couldn't Find a Flower, But There Was Snow with an album that isn't bad, but only leaves you wanting to explore the more developed pastures of Hypomanie's contemporaries. Musically more shoegaze with black metal influences, Hypomanie's purely instrumental sophomore effort has moments of body-shuddering beauty (a saving grace, no doubt) but ultimately those moments sparsity coupled with album's overall derivative nature that create what is a mostly dull listening experience, jam packed full of songs that bleed onto the next.
