5 stars Thus far the zenith of the kind of experimental black metal encamped between the kvlt and indie, "Revisionist" ups the ante for epic/symphonic black via its particular influences and kind of experimentation. First and foremost, this is a post-black album, but rather than simply be another band who blackens Neurosis or crystalises Godspeed into metal, they instead plumb the possibilities that shoegaze brings to post music. Combine with some of the best of more standard post-metal, including some powerful riffs at times indebted to Emperor and their classic symph black, and you have a uniquely awesome, genre-elastic album. The whole record is sheerly forceful and grand, with never a dull moment, but "Mint Divine", and "Enemy Victorian"'s ending, stick out, they the purest statements of shoegaze influence on the entire album, as well as "False Pass", an epic track that then adds some delicious noise to the mix. By far some of the best post-metal in years, perfect for fans of post and epic metal, and the one album that metalheads unhappy with the Pitchfork blessed side of black metal should listen to anyways - it's worth every second and every penny.
