5 stars I cant really find words to describe how I feel each time I listen to this masterpiece.

From tight and harmonized acoustic passages, ambient and post-rock to harsh death metal! You cant define this band just by one track.

If you listen to it for the very first time, the first song "The blue ghost/Shedding Qliphoth" starts really quiet and grows constantly into something touching, bigger and complete. After this song you expect something similar, "They arent all beautiful" takes that idea and throws it to the garbage. A full nonsense of death metal in which you inmediately jump and join with rage. This ups and downs go around the whole album but miraculously, it flows smoothly! This idea of playing with the listener's predictions and emotions.

My favourite track is "The Ferryman", its very diverse and pretty much has all the elements I mentioned before.

The interludes could be just "breaks" between songs, for me they are really great songs individually with one idea that develops till the end. In the next album the interludes are much more longer clocking 5 minutes. There's also a conection in the album art between both albums, like if they have switched artwork. This would eventually talk about the concept around this two records but I clearly havent digged into that yet.

In conclusion, I encourage you to listen this record or the next one just to realize what I m saying right here. I doubt this record could stop surprising me till a very long time!

Garlop | 5/5 |
