5 stars 3.54 stars? D: I figured this would be waaaaay up on the list of tech/extreme prog bands on this site. This album is .... fantastic..... I was introduced to Deathspell Omega by this album. I was totally blown away and looked at their other releases (which are also phenomenal). This band is far, far more interesting sounding that Opeth, Devin Townsend, or Atheist. Deathspell Omega uses extremely uncommon chord structures and harmonic functions that are absoultely gorgeous. Unexpected rhythmic patterns. There's variety. The drumming is ALWAYS interesting. Most of the songs evoke a different atmosphere than the next. The lyrical content is extremely interesting, I mean if you're into mysticism/the occult. Of course the lyrics are basically always screamed and that needs some getting used to for someone not used to the screaming type of music, like me.

This group has more in common with King Crimson and Mahavishnu Orchestra than anyone else.

Tengent | 5/5 |
