XAZRAUG - Unsympathetic Empyrean / CD Digipak [UK import]
Colin Marston (Krallice, Behold The Arctopus, Gorguts, etc.) avant-garde Black Metal mesmerizing project.
One of the best albums of 2020.
"Truly avantgarde black death metal in all sense of the word - pushing the envelope musically, and wrestling the purgatory of today, this Hieronymus Bosch-like world, we live in; the idiocy, the blindness, the selfishness - this album is the best of what’s around."
"The finest black metal...ish record you’re likely to hear this year. This is immersive and otherworldly music."
"Like an opera composed to the abyss it is both magnificent and haunting. Difficult to define though surely spine chilling as it bends in unrelenting brutality."
"Wonderful workings with the Krallice touch of mind-bending metal with elements of a sort of Lisa Gerrard/Dead Can Dance/Delirium vocal set and atmosphere. Truly artistic awesomeness."
