    Insert comment about how “Post Black Metal” is a meaningless term only used by hipsters and self-important, self-described “journalists”.

    I mean, it’s not at all. But it need stating at least ONCE per comment thread, right?

    Anyway, in all seriousness, I am glad AMG reviewed this one. I had been meaning to get around to listening to it myself, as I do really love The Clearing Path, but just hadn’t had chance, and it’s good to hear an informed opinion from a (semi) trustworthy source.

    • That “semi” isn’t gonna help you get those camels anytime soon.

      • AlphaBetaFoxface

        My semi is pretty capable of camel transportation.

        • Lay off the German blue films!

          • AlphaBetaFoxface

            Innuendo is a hell of a drug.

          • That’s what makes this web blog thingee great!

    • I mean, at the end of the day, its only prog mixed with shrieks, I guess

  • AlphaBetaFoxface

    I figured this album would be a bad idea when I saw a bright-blue album cover on an I Voidhanger release.

    If the guitars were less jangling this could put me straight to sleep.

      I feel like taking the elevator. Or waiting for a representative to take my call.

      • GardensTale

        Metalavator music is something I could get behind.

  • junkyhead

    Summit always flied over my radar but never really checked out them. Great sound!

  • Chigo

    I don’t think that vague, grainy, shadowy nonsense counts as a band photo. A unicorning may be in order.

    • You’re absolutely right! Steps have been taken to address this shocking oversight.

      • Chigo

        Nice! I can’t believe you got Gramaglia to pose in that costume, and did the photo shoot so quickly. This website is the most powerful force on the internet.

  • The Nerd.

    Now that’s the best Unicorning I have seen on this site. Too bad the album sucks

    • Monsterth Goatom

      I’m hoping that’s a promotional pic from the forthcoming AMG store. I want one of those Unicorns.

        I’m still waiting for the T-Shirt or the Pet Rock

  • Bart the Repairman

    Any idea what “|||||||||||||||” means?

    • Juan Manuel Pinto Guerra

      It means they couldn’t afford Christophe Szpajdel to design the logo. Or anyone else.

    • Chigo

      I think that’s the UPC code, in case you need to ring up a physical copy. I tried scanning it with my phone, but that just led me to more pics of grainy-ass shadows.

      • Bart the Repairman

        This deserves an award.

      • [not a Dr]

        I won’t scan it then: I’d rather not stare at the pictures of the shadow of a grainy ass.

        • Chigo

          Ha ha, totally understandable. You would probably be more interested in Grainy Ass Syndrome if you were a doctor.

    • Sumimitl, | guess…

  • Thatguy

    This isn’t bad, but it isn’t holding my interest enough to bother listening to the whole of the embedded song – I’ll sign off once I finish writing this. This guy does indeed need some bandmates to liven things up.

  • Carlos Marrickvillian

    I’d like to see him do this in a strip mall with a drum kit on his back, a side mounted keyboard and guitar while wearing water squirting flower hat…

    • Thatguy

      I’d like to see that too… for about 30 seconds.

      • Carlos Marrickvillian

        Until the bus hits…

  • Carlos Marrickvillian

    Listening to embedded track, I think you’re a hard marker. There are some really nice passages and as you say it sounds really good. Though I have to agree that it doesn’t compel like other bands such as Pelican, Locrian or Myrkur who really draw you into their music.
    IMO the real problem here is that he needs collaborators. it’s a rare artist that can pull off doing everything themselves. Theres no tension or competing elements pushing the song. I think he needs an additional vocalist and a very hands on producer. At the very least he should team up with a drummer / percussionist.
    I’m interested enough to give the album a listen through.
