“If there was a word lately that’s been plaguing my promo-picking (and hence, my review-writing), it would be the word ‘should.’ Everything from the band and sound descriptions, groups featuring members I respect and admire, and comparisons to well-established acts of olde color my judgment to the point that my very enjoyment hinges on the idea that, by and large, satisfaction would be gathered by what I’m reading about. Supergroups are no exception. Yes, that term has been flogged more than dead horsemeat, but when you’ve got a band made up of members of established funeral doom stalwarts such as PantheistAphonic Threnody, and Void of Silence, the end result should (there’s that word) be enticing.” Supergroups, man.
