    I see, that makes sense. I'm not familiar with Czral or his work but will give it a listen. I've since warmed to the track somewhat and would be interested in checking out its inspiration.

    It was a homage of sorts to Czral, man.

    Obsian is absolutely perfect in my opinion, with the really unfortunate exception of the clean vocals on the last track. They're just really lethargic-sounding, practically comatose, and don't fit the otherworldly atmosphere of the rest of the music at all. I think there are ways Castevet could pull off clean vocals, but that is not it. Other than that though the album is a freaking fantastic, ballistic voyage through hyperspace.

    Those clean vocals kinda suck. Obsian isn't bad, but the clean vocals on the last track are super NU.

    The Tower reminds me of Witch Hunt by Rush.

    I take it back. It needs several listens to be appreciated. Well done Andrew, my bad.

    Yeah, it's definitely growing on me more. Liking it as much as the debut now.

    @Mrozikos667: give it a few more spins, you are missing out a lot, brilliant continuation of Mounds of Ash in my opinion, even more dense and with more unexpected twists and turns, really a grower (just as Mounds of Ash was)

    I just cannot understand how a band that recorded the lovely "Mounds of Ahs" put out something like "Obsian". I mean, ok, maybe I'm missing something, maybe I'm just stupid, but while listening to it (3 times already) I feel nothing. Void. Just some background fuzz coming in through one ear and out through the other. One of the severest disappointments of the year.

    @ohsoimpulsive: Picking on someone's taste on a website based on musical taste is the lowest common denominator of comebacks. Try harder.

    Obsian is pretty sweet. Gotta different vibe to it. Not sure if it's better than Mounds of Ash yet, but I like.

    I like the debut a tad more from first listen, took a bit for it to really open up to me because there were a few lulls in bits of the first 3 tracks. Really enjoyable though, I can see this growing one me in the coming weeks/months.

    Obsian is definitely getting my money! Very decent. \m/

    apparently, listening Devin Townsend gave you a lot of confidence. that's good, kid, that's good.

    I was going to name my band Castevet, but I think I'll reconsider.
