    I bought this from Sun and Moon records to offset the shipping cost from Romania for the new Black Oath album. Turns out this is better than the album I actually wanted. Dont let goofy album art fool you, high caliber traditional doom metal

    Also not sure what the big deal is about the Void Moon cover. That's two people who have mentioned it.

    The level of detail on the leaves clashes terribly with the more stylized entity in the middle, it's like someone took a pretty cool painting of some weird forest spirit thing and clumsily photoshopped it onto a stock photo of some leaves. The horizontal symmetry makes it feel even more frankenstein'd together.

    Plus it kinda looks like a stoner doom cover which might turn some trad doom people off.

    it definitely looks like a stoner doom or "gothic death doom" shite album cover.

    Its really an eyesore in a way I dont like. The band logo looks like a stoner band... its literally as Vegard said a picture fucking leaves made to be symmetrical on both sides (was their original picture not big enough to fit the entire album art?) and then a random drawing in the middle of it that goes against the symmetrical back ground that looks kind of alright but maybe the lost the plot a bit with the weird nun face

    I've always thought that Russell Allen is a great vocalist and that SX are great when they're playing fluid, neoclassical-tinged power metal ("Out of the Ashes" etc.) but that their albums get bogged down in this dull palm-muted chugging that seems to be their default mode. But I guess I've come to terms with that part of their sound and started to feel that it makes for an effective contrast with the more melodic or symphonic components of their style.
