This was the only album of theirs I ever got. I purchased it right when it came out, I think it's fucking awesome. Never bothered to check out anything else though. How does everything else compare?

their new album, grey rigorism, is similar in style, but more developed and tight. you'll like it if you liked that one.

That album was okay some years ago, and it still isn't bad, just too polished to my taste.

Listened to the new album maybe once, sounded even too generic & polished. It's kind of like walking through a shopping mall with all those fashion stores, everything is so fucking plastic, & soulless inside. Maybe a weird allegory but that's how I feel about this kind of albums.

BLAAHhhhhhh I just watched that video for "Grey Rigorism" or whatever the fuck; lame, lame, LAME.


It has a fucking breakdown in it.

Of Entropy and Life Denial is a great fucking album. I still put it on the turntable quite often. It is a *bit* polished, but the song writing is there, so that's what keeps me coming back. The album reminds me of a logical point between Watain's "Casus Luciferi" and "Sworn to the Dark" .

I've only heard the new one once, and was not impressed. It wasn't terrible, but their balls are gone and it is too sterile, as perviously mentioned.

This is probably their best album, but this band is so bland, and boring, IMO.

Yeah, I find them to be a pretty unremarkable band. However, if you liked that disc you'd probably like the bulk of the new one. Along with Temple of Baal I usually file this band under "French bands that are pretty blah..."

I think Temple of Baal is terrible, a friend suggested them. Mediocre at (nowhere near) BEST.

And I agree Herr blodhemn9, I always thought it was the logical successor to "Casus Luciferi".
