In the case of Deathconsciousness, the emotions and happenings of the life of Antiochus are perfectly captured in the mood of the actual music.


Tbh I’m kinda speechless. I had a crazy ascension with this album last night that was reminiscent of my first true appreciation of To Be Kind. I can’t really put words together right now.
