    new album is definitely a grower. Nowhere near as good as consolamentum of course.

    I can't see why new Death and Black Metal bands can't seem to get a hold of a good logo to stay with untill the very end of their era. It's somewhat frustrating to "learn" to read their name over and over again, as they update their logo every two years.

    I don't hear an iota of Watain influence in them, to be honest

    sirbakedalot I can think of about 10 bands, off the top of my head that have solos fairly often. and try not to turn this into another trendy 'watain sux' fest, you can go be edgy and hip someplace else... because yes a lot stuff on Consolamentum sounds similar to Casus Luciferi. it's just fact...

    Good new album. It looks like they managed to create an DSO-independent sound which is a good thing imo. Still, I expected something more grandiose
