Damn. People are straight up angry on this page. Ambient and spacy tracks and really shines in the second half. I wanna see a 90 minute set from these guys where they throw in this stuff between their death metal songs.
In a surprising twist, Blood Incantation, until now so content on making only the most hideous and chaotic metal imaginable, have released a relaxed ambient record. Its core structure seems to be the band's well-known songs, relooped and deamplified to sound ambient. With plenty genuinely beautiful moments, I commend them for going in this direction, and I am curious whether that signals a shift to a new style in the future metal releases for the project.
Well, it's no DM, but I gotta say it's a damn well crafted space synth voyage that moves slowly but without ever being static, and is quite good from the get go at setting a mood. Worked extremely well with the colourful purples of the sunset and flashy traffic lights out my window today. If it'd been released in like 1985 it would be an easy upper 4.0 if not 4.5. I will concede it goes on for a bit too long maybe, especially given its conclusion feels essentially like a fadeout, but on the other hand I really want to counterbalance people who low rated this out of spite for it not being dm, so you know what 3.8
For all I know, this could be good for what it is; however, I don?t care as I?m not interested in sitting down and listening to sci-fi soundtracks. If this didn?t say Blood Incantation?s name on it, I would?ve turned it off during the first song, but given their great past releases I continued. I should not have.

Sci-fi vibe? Check. Good flow? Check. Drones and textures? Check. I really dig the quite "winter synth"-ish slow and somnolent flow. ("Ea: Third Movement" is especially great.) Good for relaxing, or just simply played in the background for mild activities.
