With this release I think it's safe to lay those Mitochondrion comparisons to rest... Auroch have delivered their best work yet, both in concept and execution. This is regal, grandiose death metal with lyrics that read like scriptures of an ancient text, just as they are printed in the wonderfully laid-out booklet. The incredibly compelling opening track was enough to convince me, but that level of quality is maintained throughout. Death metal fans, take note.
Favorite track: Billowing Vervain.
