If you didn't feel anything during "Death Rhymes" you might start considering looking for a new
soul, cause the one you got now is pretty much dead at this point.

Brutal! What a great surprise to have a double album by this monstrous Super Group. Never getting disappointed by these guys!

Dewi is right, honestly I wouldn't mind a full album of tunes like Death Rhymes. That shit is just absolutely gold.

Geezus can?t wait for the prequel if this slams this hard, one time fake-out album is cool but twice is god-tier insanity

Farewell Caleb. As in 2014, OMG puts out too separate album during the same year. Still waiting for the second part (Seminar VIII, weird they released IX before VIII btw) but this one riffs hard while bringing the emotion of the void left by Scofield. Good examples of that is for example The Bleeding Sun, which is as pounding in the background as beautiful in its main riff. I also felt some hard Owsla-era FoE in this song (basically it's crusty). Fortunately, the album is everything but a simple homage to the bands' deceased bassist: it is as diverse as we could expect Old Man Gloom to be, fusing sludge and post-metal, noise rock and their typical noisy ambient section. This last subgenre of theirs has unfortunately never striked me as 100% necessary, and I once again get that feeling (Canto de Santos's first part). The emotion however climaxes in Death Rhymes a beautiful and soulful tune in which Caleb is memorialized, one last time. 3.8
