Can't believe how unknown and underrated this monster is in AOTY. If you like your metal unrelenting, taking no prisoners, knotty and full of rusty spikes all around, this is for you.


Probably the closest we've been to say an album sounds like being burned by the eternal flames of hell.


The best part about Close to a World Below is easily the technical ability and just how brutal it sounds. The lyrics themselves are the usual hating religion but with Ross Dolan vocal performance they do pack more of a punch.
