    I wasn't too impressed with it. Although I bet it will get better with more listens. That seems to be the trend for new albums.

    The problem with his newer stuff is that is is mostly catchy riffs, the awsome nature atmosphere he had in the early stuff is pretty much gone. : |

    Yeah, I heard that is very much the case with this new album but I'm going to give it a fair chance.

    How does Deathspell Omega - Kenose hold up to their other material?

    It's their best one.

    Far more coherent than Fas. Catchier than SMRC. I think this is the peak of technical black metal, that I'm aware of. In my top 5 or 10 BM releases.

    It's more similar to the Mass Grave Aesthetics and Diabolus Absconditus tracks than any other releases they've done. I prefer Kenose to those two, but MGA is an outstanding song.

    No it's not imo, but it's still worthy.

    This. Though I disagree that it's catchier than SMRC. It certainly isn't as accessible.


    "Kenose III" is possibly the greatest Black Metal riff ever penned.

    So I got Vuotare's 'Dysphoric Undertones' because it was mentioned in this thread (I think), and its really very, very average. I still need to give it another listen before I press del.

    Blake is a criminal too since he steal money with his label and judging from his new pic, he sure looks scary.

    maybe you aren't much of a drone fan? I like the album because it's a very cool mix of black metal and drone. Maybe you should give it more of a chance because it's certainly not "average". I don't know many bands at all who play that kind of mix. I think it's a lot more interesting than most ambient type black metal.
