Esoteric's discography could be divided in thirds based on how their sound has developed throughout the years. This album is of similar musical fashion to the "Maniacal Vale" and very well challenges it. Chandler has taken the ideas that worked so very well in the previous release and expanded upon it. There are moments in this album that would leave you speechless upon listening. Definitely worth for purchase for fans of the genre. Doubt it will win any album of the album of the year accolades because of the obscure and mind debilitating nature of the music, but it should it is sublime.
A dark. gloomy journey through a chasm of sheer doom, fueled by dark, heavy-impact riffing and multiple other musical elements. Esoteric has crafted a two part album that will not only leave your mouth hanging open, but will set a new standard for doom metal in creating atmosphere.
