0.0 Xenophanes EMERITUS | August 4th 21

My BDSM fetish is getting pumped for new Kayo Dot albums so I can feel the erotic disappointment after

10/05 edit: okay y’all this is turning out pretty great so far

2.7 averageBenjamin Kuettel EMERITUS | October 28th 21

A spirited tribute to the European gothic metal bands of the late 1980s and '90s that Driver and co. grew up being inspired by. The wonky and largely emotionally cold nature of Blasphemy still lingers in this follow-up, as it never quite gets off the ground for me. There's just too much disjointedness and throwback metal songwriting to be fully effective. There are some nice moments throughout, and the return of bass is very welcome. "Void in Virgo (The Nature of Sacrifice)" is the highlight.

4.5 superbNietzschesMoustache | February 1st 22

Avant-Garde Metal // 2021 // Best: "Void in Virgo (The Nature of Sacrifice)"

Bump

5.0 classicChipsanaDrink | November 7th 21

Probably come back later to give a mini review but for now, that last riff on brethren of the cross is so grimey, ugh it just hits the spot.

Bump

3.8 excellentErwann S. STAFF | November 3rd 21

Cool, new maudlin of the Well, and it's their most gothic too!!! The d o o m is indeed present, but it's when the music is at its least gloomy that Moss manages to truly feel grand and epic, like on masterpiece "The Necklace", or during deez licks on "Void in Virgo".

Bump

5.0 classicShadowOfTheCitadel | October 29th 21

The best thing they've done aside from Hubardo, without question. Album is absolutely brutal.

Bump

3.5 greatZakusz | October 28th 21

Loved what I have heard from the singles so far, really excited to toss this on tonight and give it the attention it deserves.

Bump

4.5 superbAzazzel | October 5th 21

Bump
