BitterJalapeno
I hate to use the word "unprecedented" at a time when the word has lost all meaning due the frequency of its use in the 2020 media but there is no alternate word i can use to describe the heaviness of this album. I don't mean heavy as in the brutality of the music or heavy as in shockingly harsh vocals. I mean heavy as in the heavy emotion projected by Kirk and the boys which is dripping in so much sorrow and burning pain that it will weigh you down to the point where you are empathizing with their misery - in a very good way.

The album is very slow and at some points dirgey but my god, the delivery is brute force. The riffs are of gargantuan proportions and sort of sound like two giants battling on a mountain top. These are carried along by the ever pounding drums and together with the rasping vocals of Windstein, the whole thing washes over you in a big wave of sludgy goodness. If you have not had the pleasure of this album yet, please get yourself immersed.

Deep, passionate, sorrowful, amazing. Truly deserving of a 5/5.

PS: Good Iron Maiden cover to round things off at the end.
