You misunderstood me, though to be fair I should have clarified my stance on that. I never said they were on the same level. TRITSIO outclasses Lunar Strain for sure, but both albums were innovative for its time, just in a different way. LS was melodic death/thrash with Maiden influenced harmonies and a black metal edge where as TRITSIO was a melodic death metal album influenced by black metal, but before those albums came out there was nothing really like it, except for maybe Carcass' Heartwork (in LS' case). And they're both very heavy albums, even if the production sort of betrays that. I definitely agree that TRITSIO is a very refined and rewarding record with tons of layers you can peel back with each listen. Its one of my favorite MDM releases of all time, next to Eucharist's Mirrorworlds, DT's Character, and Colony. And Gardens of Grief is a cool demo, but raw as fuck.
