hipstatomic Songs like Emergence and Cerebral Intermission (which are excellent as bookends for this album) give you the sense of wandering through a void, or perhaps a deep, dark cavern. Dweller on the Threshold and Alexithyma are for when the walls start closing around you and claustrophobia sets in. Listen to this album in a dark room and let yourself be trapped. 8.5/10

Genres: Sludge, Doom Metal, Black Metal Favorite track: Alexithymia.
