While I can't deny this is a really nice deathgaze record (just found out about this term, I'll need to check it out more) I feel like it tries to sound too "epic" for its own sake, which does more harm than helping with the overall atmosphere. But hey, as my introduction to deathgaze, it's really good, and can't wait to find more about it.


June 2022 Reviews:

I never really liked Kardashev. I found them to be a bit too lacking in their attempt to get deathgaze as a genre off the ground. But this record really changes the game. It is full of so many twists and turns, and each song fits a larger piece of the puzzle. It truly feels like an excellent experience from the band and it is an incredible listen each time I try it out. I cannot recommend this one enough.
