This is a crushing, atmospheric disc of Blackened Doom/Death that I have been really enjoying. Temple Nightside play their music in a crushing, occult morass of distorted vocals and deep-voiced riffs. The recording on this is rather muffled, but it comes across as atmosphere rather than ineptitude, and there is a pleasurable feel of lightless depths and Lovecraftian nastiness to the whole proceeding. Maybe most of these songs sound alike, but the feel and vibe conjured up by the band never gets old. This is much more moody than abrasive, but it is a black, evil good time.
