Thanatos isn’t casual, and it shouldn’t be treated as such.
…if you wanna sit with an album for a few listens and really get to know it, then this one’s for you!
This may be the darkest entry I’ve heard in the cosmic black metal subcategory. It is also one of the best.
Not only are the riffs sharp and interesting, but they are often incredibly strange, coming out of left field, but fitting incredibly well in the fabric of the album.
Psychic Contortions is a gripping ride through an atmosphere bleak with dense disturbances.
This is not an album to be listened to in the bright daylight. In fact, if you were to try, the world would feel strange and dim as you listened.

This album is a masterpiece that will continue to unsettle me for years to come. Take note.
