    This is a really, really good review. From the sounds of it, the album’s real nice as well, oughta make a note to pick it up.

  • Gloson grimen gunten globen! *offspring song starts*

    • DrewMusic

      Deth Leppard

      • HairyToeKnuckles

        Def Leppard, too.

    Hm… I’m not synesthetic but your intro paragraph made me think about what you be an equivalent for focus on shape rather than color in music. My first approach would be obvious. Shape is rhythm and color is melody. And I guess timbre would be the material (marble vs clay/oil vs ink/guitar vs piano).

    In that framework, djent would be greyscale and shred would be rainbows. Synths in pop would be chewing gum and guitars in metal would be… metal.

    Does that make sense?

      And most slam would be brown and turd-shaped.

    • Juan Manuel Pinto Guerra

      It makes complete sense that guitars in Metal would be metal.

        For doom they are hewn from a solid block of basalt.

      In my limited synestethic experience rhythm is more like shape, and timbre closer to color. Rich sounds (guitars, voice, reed instruments) are wood…ier? And that’s more of a physical sensation.

      I used to be synethstetic. I haven’t written a single song since it stopped a few years ago… Makes me sad…

  • Diego Molero

    This is pretty good on first listen. It also reminded me to go back to Izah, it has been a while since I last listen to Sistere, so it is a double win!

  • Juan Manuel Pinto Guerra

    That first paragraph… Kronos, your reviews are a thing of beauty!

  • Oscar Albretsen

    Sounds very promising, and I have a feeling this would really be a transcendent experience after smoking a joint.

    • DrewMusic

      Transcendant is pretty much exactly how this feels, this is gonna be a bowl and headphones kinda album for sure.

  • Treble Yell

    Beautiful review, Kronos. The introduction in particular is richly evocative.

  • DrewMusic

    Maybe I was overly prepared to be under(ly?)whelmed, but damn that was good, I’m all kinds of excited for this and really hope I can get it on vinyl. That album cover is fucking sweet.

  • junkyhead

    Great sound.

  • herrschobel

    spot on review……very very good…thats why this site is my first source for new music and inspiration..and the music…oh boy…i love this

  • sir_c

    Nice review and I really like the embedded track.
    Plenty some space rock / stoner influences too, if you ask me. Which is good in this case, it is a very tasty blend. Will put this on the list for further scrutinizing.

    Hello. Sorry for nitpicking, but Worldwide release is 13th of February 2017, not 2016.;)

    Yeah, just wanted to say something.:)
