4.0 excellentGhostShelter | April 9th 21

The engineering/mix on this is superb. Zao has been super inconsistent on that front over the years, but they nailed it this time.

9 Bumps | Bump

3.7 greatErwann S. STAFF | April 9th 21

This is dark shit. Weyandt is the pilot here, laying personal struggle with a voice that is as fucking filthy as ever. He's belching lyrics into a cascade of all things disgusting supported by atonal harmonics and a dirty sludge sound. This all-around brutality is however counterbalanced by a starker insistence on atmosphere - hence the post-metal(core) linings. Still, there's fat to trim, and that might be the album's only trve fault.

3 Bumps | Bump

4.5 superbJWT155 | April 9th 21

Into the 4th decade of being a band, Zao yet again show why they're a perenniel metalcore band and a cornerstone for the genre, releasing yet another relentless record where the band appears to have not skipped a single beat. Take notes kids, this is how its done.

4.0 excellenthesperus | April 16th 21

don't dead open inside

2 Bumps | Bump

4.5 superbJared Wegenast | April 9th 21

That mid-breakdown on the title track fucking slays. Really solid effort by Zao. Desolate and heavy, this album's atmosphere is suffocating.

2 Bumps | Bump

4.5 superbThyCrossAwaits | April 21st 21

Have not had an album I already loved grow on me this much in a long time. So much so I felt I needed to up my rating.

1 Bumps | Bump

4.5 superbCowboyPitstomp | December 1st 22

still making the rest of metalcore sound like trash

Bump

3.5 greatGene Gol-Jonsson CONTRIBUTOR | January 19th 22

Zao are a rare instance of a band regrouping after hiatus to start releasing actually better music than before. Maybe it's a hot take, it seems quite mild to me.

Bump

3.5 greatXenophanes EMERITUS | April 14th 21

Had zero intention of listening to this but some of those singles bop hard

Bump

4.5 superbIgnimbrite | April 13th 21

this bangs

Bump

4.5 superbEvangelancer | April 12th 21

Knew this album would be good, but didn't expect it to exceed my expectations this much. A wonderfully dark surprise!

Bump

4.0 excellentCount999 | April 11th 21

Another great album by my favorite metal/hardcore band. Need more listens but I love it so far

Bump
