Second album for Temple Nightside, who produced the enormously fun The Hecatomb just a few years ago. That album had more of a Doom vibe than this one, partly I think because the muffled production buried the double-bass runs and made it sound more atmospheric than pugilistic. This album has a better recording job, so it sounds a bit less murky, but it is still a really enjoyable disc of crushing heaviness and occult malevolence. I love the atmosphere this band constructs with their hollow, echoing sound and the genuinely good riffs, plus they add to it with little flourishes of keys to add to the mood, and the whole thing sounds like the inside of an abandoned tomb filled with arcane secrets and murderous ghosts. A good time.
