FeRRiS A filthy descent into the bowels of hell: Despair, anguish, agony, gnashing of teeth. You can actually smell the sulphur and feel the brimstone pounding your head into oblivion. Jef has incorporated the dissonance and atmosphere from Lurker of Chalice with the malevolence and venom of Leviathan. A Magnum Opus of an album. Bought the Die Hard version on vinyl and was not disappointed. Jef Whitehead is a fucking master of his craft. His music, along with the art, makes for the best black metal ever produced. Wrest proves again why Leviathan is the bar to which all others are measured by.

frozen Angrier and more brooding than past work, this is Leviathan the caged animal banging on the bars. Beautiful music. Favorite track: Gardens Of Corprolite.

Jason Harper What an onslaught of sound! Leviathan remind me of Portal.. if Portal's music was on acid. Fantastic arrangements on this album. There is almost a separate theme that drapes through this album that I can't tell is intentionally or not. Absolute gem of heavy, blackened, experimental metal. Favorite track: The Smoke Of Their Torment.

about

Another long-awaited return and rejuvenation of the most notorious and infamous U.S. black metal entity, LEVIATHAN (solely commanded by Wrest, aka Jef Whitehead) has returned with what could possibly be regarded as one of the most glorious moments of Wrest’s musical career, one in which is comprised of a vast musical repertoire like no other in black metal.

Given the name “Scar Sighted”, LEVIATHAN’s fifth full-length album (amongst a repertoire that consists of numerous demos, compilations, EPs, and splits) is an album that comprises familiar moments culled from LEVIATHAN’s entire repertoire into one demented and twisted opus while standing as its own distinct entity within the LEVAIATHAN oeuvre; “Scar Sighted” being years in the making following the chaos, turbulence, and psychotic turmoil surrounding 2011’s controversial “True Traitor True Whore” album. With “Scar Sighted”, LEVIATHAN continues more in the vein of the “Massive Conspiracy Against All Life” masterpiece while other “lurkings” also run amongst the epic sound picture Wrest has painted with “Scar Sighted”.

Produced and engineered by Bill Anderson (Swans, Agalloch, Pallbearer, Red House Painters, Melvins) in Portland Oregon, Anderson in conspiracy with Wrest has helped to manifest the best, most crushing and dark sounding LEVIATHAN album to date likewise.
