Mare Cognitum
« on: January 04, 2017, 02:28:32 AM »
Atmospheric black metal from Orange County, United States.

This is incredibly refreshing. Atmospheric black metal with a cosmic bent, without the trappings of trends associated with modern atmoblack. The new album simultaneously manages to sound like a throwback while maintaining it's originality. Almost orchestral in some aspects, the compositions are intricate, the instrumentation intense, and as a whole this is exactly what I've been searching for this year in terms of black metal. It's been a long time since I've heard something that hits me the way this album does. Highly recommended.

I have Phobos Monolith, which was enjoyable. Another band in LONG list of bands that I need to delve deeper into.
