As usual, Krallice delivers the goods. This time around it's as if they desided to raid 1990s Burzum and Darkthrone records and, for the longer tracks, throw in about two dozen more riffs per song. There's also a charming detour into ambient and a very pretty outro. Both of Krallice's new albums are among the highlights of the year.
Favorite track: Go Be Forgotten.
The Second of two full-length Krallice albums for end of 2017.
As we enter the new year we also approach the 10-year anniversary of the first Krallice full-length album. Their self-titled debut set the US metal world ablaze as it seemed to come from nowhere and make a distinguishing mark on North American Black Metal, and what it would become. This album touches upon that time, and the feeling of earlier Krallice records.

Answers the question of where Krallice would go after "Years Past Matter." Completely unclassifiable, the songs are simultaneously compact and complex. The playing and musicanship is breathtaking... "Wastes of Ocean" into "Over Spirit" being a prime example. It must also be said that Mick Barr is a badass motherfucker all over this album. "Agony in collective ignorance/Called upon by thyself/Thyself being a part of all life/In the sickness/Quarantined in pure paranoia" Pretty prophetic, right? bcb723

Krallice at their finest--triumphant, labyrinthine guitar melodies, complicated bass lines that provide a dark harmonic counterpoint, and expert drumming guiding like a lantern through the darkness. If you've never been treated to their signature brand of USBM before now, this is a perfect place to start. PannionSeer
