4 stars I really liked this album. It's my first Guapo album, though, so I can't comment in light of the rest of their catalog. It's saturated with a very dark, ominous mood; with dissonant/evil riffs throughout. It's very gothic sounding, but without sounding too big, or overblown with reverb. My taste normally steers me away from standard medieval/gothic sounding music, but I find this is definitely more up-front and dry than typically overblown music. It's definitely more akin to standard zheul. There is quite a bit of space despite it's sometimes frantic orchestration. It reminds me a lot of some of King Crimson's more evil sounding pieces. If you're shopping for some good, moody, technical instrumental music, I definitely recommend it.
