Deathspell Omega - The Furnaces Of Palingenesia

The Furnaces Of Palingenesia is one of the most anticipated records of the year. Deathspell Omega have for years now been on the the black metal undergrounds favorite groups. They are forward thinking and uadacious, constantly pushing the listener to new heights. There is a maddening beauty behind their music, and on this, their seventh full length effort that comes together more clearly than ever before. Painting massive soundscapes and a sense of hellish humanity, The Furnaces Of Palingenesia is the sound of the world coming apart.

The deeper you dig into this record, the more you feel your sanity starting to come apart. This is an album that is chaotic and weird. It is over the top and powerful, constantly demanding more but consequently rewarding the listener. Every time I come back to Deathspell Omega's discography I think once more about how huge of an impact this band has had on the underground. There are countless bands who ape the devastating black metal madness of this band, but only Deathspell Omega execute with such aplomb. This is an album that encourages you to dive in and navigate its Dante-esque hellscape.

The Furnaces Of Palingenesia is a stunner through and through. It is more than worth multiple listens and constantly encourages the listener to pull back another layer of their own psyche in the name of black metal slaughter. Deathspell Omega remain firmly years ahead of the curve with a sound that is terrifying and grandiose. This is a record that is going to routinely have you grasping for sanity and begging for more from yourself. The more you invest, the more you fall in love. The bands brand of brazen and unwieldy black metal stuns once more.

Pre-order the record!
