Genre: Black Metal
Before The Black Twilight Circle's lineage got all confusing and convoluted, they had a rost of like six bands with Arizmenda probably standing as one of, if not the best. This is easily one of the best black metal releases to come out in the last 15 years, no doubt thanks to the cacophony of swirling, noisy riffage the band is so apt at creating. It's dissonant, but also kind of melodic and very somber. The songs go on for a long time but they put you in a trance and you can feel every movement the band makes. Really great stuff.
