    exactly. I wasn't expecting this to top Fas, as you've said SMRC/Fas top each of their splits imo. But I really like the direction they decided to take with this album. A bit less dissonance, more structure, more variety on the vocals, and just out-of-this-world riffage. I couldn't have asked for more.

    ^ Sums it up perfectly. It's an amazing blend of the less abrasive smrc period and more atonal fas material. I love it, it's perfect. The improved vocals are one of the things I like the most about this split, adds so much to the material.

    Finally! I got my password! I have been reading this thread all week like a creeper as i have been obsessing over finding a leak of this song as i try to live through finals week at school.

    I agree totally with all you chaps, and I must say that DSO really never fails to impress.

    I'm glad a good majority of the lyrics have somewhat of a pattern, rather than just seeming like an afterthought (I got this feeling on SMRC a lot, as if a lot of the vocals were a spoken word track thrown over the music)

    Well after lotsa listens, i'd say Fas is slightlybetter than this split, in my opinion. But I like the chaotic atonal dissonent nature of fas. But I've noticed how they've improved their flow and song structure with this split, and I like the come back of SMRC style melodic stuff. And man this song has such a great climatic finish. Especially the horns and the lyrics. But it's still early days yet with this split!

    Can't really see how they're cheesy though.

    To each his own, I guess! As a sidenote, Chaining the Katechon surely is a grower, much like Fas was. For me, that is. Getting better for every listen.

    I prefer this to SMR,C.. Fas to Katechon.. But Kenosé is probably still my favourite.

    Just started getting into Deathspell Omega, and I gotta say I'm impressed. Definately living up to the hype for me so far!
