5 stars A display of sheer terror.

Take it as a statement that this is for sure one of the most ambitious albums in Deathspell Omega's Discography and Black Metal in general. Being one of their first proper masterpieces, KÚn˘se finds Deathspell Omega discovering their signature technical black metal sound and revolutionizing the genre by pushing it into undiscovered ground.

The entire album is one song, however due to its length and density it was divided in three tracks. This is quite possibly the heaviest album the band has made to date, so approach it carefully. If you don't like growls you definitely won't enjoy this thirty-five minute stream of brutality.

As I stated before, this was the album where Deathspell Omega found their signature sound. That sound is shredding, atonal, often syncopated guitars, technical and light-speed drums and very creative and moody bass. The entire song is raw black metal nonstop. Some moments like the end of "II" have the band at its absolute technical peak.

Combine this technical prowess with inspiration from avant-garde metal and you get a flurry of chaos that is somehow incredibly well structured and precise. It's one of the band's best records to date and it's for sure essential in their discography. Five Stars!
