    I can barely hear his dam vocals, there is a slight hiss that hurts my ears on my PC speakers.

  • El_Cuervo

    I can see his willy in the picture haha

    • Roquentin

      Classic El_Cuervo!

    • Monsterth Goatom

      Full Frontal Metal!

  • DrChocolate

    I know there’s the well documented Cult of The Sphere in album covers, but there’s got to be some as yet unnamed breakaway sect that worships at the altar of Psychedelic Geometrics and The Vitruvian Proportions of Man. Without reading one word or tag on this reviews lead-in I thought to myself, “Oh look, a new French black metal release.”

    • Roquentin

      Speaking of which, I’m in the process of writing a review for Chaos Echoes’ “Transient”. Again French, again avant-metal, but no vitruvian proportions! Instead they’ve got really great artwork and the music is… well, no spoilers. ;-)

    • dduuurrrr dddduuuurrrr

      I think this is one of the worst album covers I’ve seen for a long time. It’s like 3 or 4 half baked ideas tossed together with no sense of color whatsoever.

      • DrChocolate

        Serious, it looks like the first, rough, rejected, scorned draft of the ‘777: Sects’ cover.

        • dduuurrrr dddduuuurrrr

          Totally, do we know who did that? I know the brilliant Metastazis did 777: the Desanctification but not sure if he’s also responsible for Sects. (correctly attributing art is so sketchy if you don’t have the physical cd)

          Either way, I feel like I could remake that cover so quickly with better results

          • DrChocolate

            That’s awesome. I think I like your version better – it’s less first year art school student than the actual.

            A little googling time later and it looks like Fenomeno Design (aka Daniel Valencia) did the work for Sects. Found and interview with him and apparently he’s done work for Glorior Belli and Merrimack too – but his day job is for a supplements and cosmetics company…people are fascinating.

          • dduuurrrr dddduuuurrrr

            Hopefully it’s actually a LOT less first year art student looking ;)

        • dduuurrrr dddduuuurrrr

          15 minutes

      • Martin Knap

        but still better than putting the cabalistic tree of life there.

  • Carlos Marrickvillian

    I feel compelled to add…nothing is more pretentious than liturgy.

    • Diabolus_in_Muzaka

      I’m with you there, Carlos. We are part of the unwashed masses who’ve yet to cross the haptic void via transcendental black metal.

    • JohnC

      Yeah, Liturgy is more pretentious by far, but this still better than it… Except comparing the two is like arguing over which shit smells better.

  • Diabolus_in_Muzaka

    I’ve nothing to add, but here’s two things:
    1) Great review, and
    2) I really want to see the “unspoken rules” rant.

    Also, “pretentious without a reason” might be the finest descriptor of this sort of music I’ve ever seen.

  • Ya hey Ya

    this album is a piece of art…
