Nope, but Austin gave me a copy. Because he's a nice guy. Either that or he wanted a confidence boost and knew that I'd gush all over it if he gave me a copy. But I think it's pretty much cause he's a nice guy.

Yeah, it's not exactly what I was expecting, but it sure as hell delivered. Don't know if the version I have is the Colin Marston master or not, but it's angry as fuck when it's angry. But what surprised me the most was the range of emotion present in the black metal tracks, not just the anger (which, to be fair is not quite as brutal as Social Disservices). The guy moves between epic, soaring romanticism on Bodies Over The Falls to the more solemn, grieving tone of Black Soot and Red Blood, which eventually erupts in this awesome crescendo of righteous fury. Lots of bands have awesome tracks with great riffs, but he's really good at conveying his point through the actual composition. So far I haven't been able to catch most of the lyrics, expect the samples, but I hardly even have to hear them to get a sense of what the point of the different songs are.

It's also way more melodic than I expected. The guitar leads are almost Iron Maiden-esque at times. Especially when he does the twin-guitar harmony thing. And since I fucking love Iron Maiden, this is good, if unexpected.

And the bluegrass songs work surprisingly well. Not only as interludes but actual songs.

I'm pretty sure he got rid of the old masters, so you're probably hearing the Marston master.

Probably, it's just that the file was a couple of month sold, but I guess the Marston master has been done for a while.

Still avoiding it for now, and waiting on the (now at least slightly delayed) pre-order to go up. Gonna be hard when he puts two songs up for preview in a couple days.

I don't really dig it as much as you guys. It sounds alright, though.

Just listened to it three times back-to-back-to-back. Self-discipline? What are you talking about?

Hmm we should call this post pagan black metal lol. I can see that at least in this song he borrowed elements from Kroda and the like.

I'm about halfway through the song. I like this one more than the other.

Well, I just learned something new... Apparently A.Lundr was the vocalist for Anagnorisis. I did not realize that. I was big into that band for a while.

I haven't listened to Overton Trees in a while. Maybe I'll go find it.
