It's kind of frustrating when I hear a really good album and I can't really say much about it because it just rips from beginning to end and, well, that should be enough said! Through Wilderness opens up with a gentle acoustic guitar intro to lure in the unsuspecting, but then immediately turns into a wall of godly death metal that is literally a rollercoaster of speed, heaviness and occasionally slower, almost doomy atmospheric moments that really hammer you to the floor like a little bitch. The somewhat innocuous death growls are the only thing that aren't all over the place and kind of provide a baseline where the instruments meet before going into various extremes. Some cool guitar solos, crushingly heavy slow parts and a lot of melody are all expertly put together to create an album that reveals something new on every listen. I could get used to this stuff.
