This album is a masterpiece that will continue to unsettle me for years to come. Take note.
It’s the type of album that can be hard to write about objectively, because it’s really more about how it grabs me and about how it makes me feel, than it is about particular riffs, rhythms, or anything else.
A cohesive split where both bands hook you and won’t let go, this is a release worthy of thirty plus minutes of your time, over and over again.
Taken together, the two sides of Theosulphuros have something of a yin yang quality to them – the more structured Precaria, riding herd on the wild nature of Darkness, driving chaos relentlessly forward and the more chaotic ÔROS KAÙ whose wild rhythms reveal a central, mesmeric calm being birthed.
The key ingredient on this darkly majestic album is riffs.
Allow the three tracks to guide your exploration to the primal void and find what truth is to be had there.
