ESOTERIC — Metamorphogenesis (review)

4/5 ·
Warthur
A full length-album by anyone else's standards, a mere EP compared the massive monoliths of funeral doom metal that Esoteric usually deliver, Metamorphogenesis is perhaps a good place for novices to dip their toes into Esoteric's sound at this stage of their career. Somewhat less spacey than the preceding album (The Pernicious Enigma) and more aligned with traditional funeral doom metal, it's easier to digest than a lot of Esoteric's work, but at the same time I do miss the extent to which you can just lose yourself and swim around in their double albums here. Try it out, but bear in mind that Esoteric isn't quite Esoteric unless there's an overwhelming amount of it.
