4 stars They advertise an unnatural interest in gastropods, but there is nothing unnatural about it. A group and albums concept based in nature. The music is some of the best progressive black metal ever created. Every album is phenomenal, and there is no reason not to give the first three a shot since they are free on Bandcamp. I opted to support the band by buying a compilation of the first three albums called The Cosmic Cornucopia. Esoteric Malacology has more Progressive Metal elements and may be softer than the previous three, but preserves the incredible harmonies, excellent musicianship, and stellar songwriting. I find their music to be addicting high energy, and I can easily listen to all four albums in one sitting at work or on the go. Anyone that craves heavier music should definitely give them a listen. From War Squids to Limo Vincit Omnia, there is plenty of prog for progressive ears.
