Doom is for old men. I really like this doom record. But I am not yet an old man. Not being old men themselves, Loviatar rejuvenated their doom with a healthy injection of post-metal, pulling the style forward into, well, at least the ‘90s.
Favorite track: Silica.
I can safely say that after jamming this album for 3 years, it is hands down my FAVORITE death metal album. I've never been able to pick a favorite before, but every single thing about this album is just perfection. Flawless production, god-level riffage, ride cymbal work that rings through to your bones, bass lines that perfectly accentuate the rhythm and the riffs, and of course HAIL MOLLUSCA Hatch
