I just want to say that this album is fucking amazing. It has become one of my favourites ever. Its production, writing... Everything seems to sit so perfectly in the mix. The acoustic passages are sublime and it has this kind of ambiance that reminds me to Icon or Draconian Times from Paradise Lost, one of my favourite bands. I love how the songs develop and they aren't predictable at all. Outstanding vocals. They are very emotional yet very aggressive without overcompensating or overdoing it. It captures this strange dark romanticism that only the best ones achieve. One of the best albums in the genre definitely. A masterpiece IMHO. The only cons I've found is its title. It doesn't dismantle devotion, but creates it by how great the album is.
