This review is written by someone who considers Deathspell Omega to be one of the most important Black Metal bands nowadays and one of the most important in the history of the genre...and this is why:

"Si Monvmentvm Reqvires, Circvmspice" – comparison with other Metal albums

"Si Monvmentvm Reqvires, Circvmspice" is the beginning of one of the most important trilogies in modern-day Metal...and I say Metal 'cause the album at hand is more than Black. It incorporates Progressive and Technical elements, the listener having to deal with the absolutely monumental waves of music complexity, frenetic dissonance and polyrhythmic song structures that redefined Deathspell Omega as Avant-garde Black. I would dare to compare the importance of this album with Mayhem's "Chimera", Burzum's "Filosofem", Darkthrone's "Panzerfaust", Enslaved's "Mardraum" or even Negură Bunget's "Măiastru Sfetnic".

"Si Monvmentvm Reqvires, Circvmspice" – comparison with other Deathspell Omega albums

Released in 2004, it has a totally different sound than the Darkthrone-like "Infernal Battles" and "Inquisitors of Satan", setting the standards for what it was to come: the majestic "Fas - Ite, Maledicti, in Ignem Aeternum" and the crushing "Paracletus", with "Fas - Ite, Maledicti, in Ignem Aeternum" being the pinnacle of this collection. Although not the best from the three, "Si Monvmentvm Reqvires, Circvmspice" was the beginning of change in contemporary Black Metal, an infusion of inspiration and new elements that the BM scene needed so bad.
