I never thought I'd like any cover of rPlacebo, but Oskoreien's compelling, droning rrendition of 'Without You, I'm Nothing' is rnice and his original track, 'Deterministic rChaos,' which surprisingly treads nearer DSBM rterritory considering the Placebo cover, owns rin its own right. Both Oskoreien tracks on rthe split are fantastic and leave a lasting rimpression.rMeanwhile, Botanist continues to throw rsurprises at listeners as Otrebor maintains rhis signature, unmistakable sound. rAdmittedly, the percussion and use of rhammered dulcimers are almost all-to-rfamiliar, but the songwriting continues to rdevelop. It is hard to pick highlights but rthe single, 'Dracula Vampira,' is a perfect rexample of Botanist sounding like Botanist rbefore offering up a brighter shade of green rsuddenly pollinated with a blooming sense of rthe unknown.
