Sulphur Aeon - The Scythe of Cosmic Chaos 2-LP (Green vinyl)
Overall, The Scythe of Cosmic Chaos is a vast and all-consuming journey into lovecraft’s mythos that will ensure you feel both unnerved and bewildered, and it will more than certainly take your breath away and fill your lungs as its dark, crushing waters wash over you. Shitty metaphors aside, the album is amazing, and certainly at the peak of what atmospheric death metal can do. The instrumentation and vocals are all great, the songwriting and atmospheres are both fantastic, and overall the album leaves very very little to be desired. Though it isn’t perfect, it’s pretty damn close. Definitely one of the best death metal albums to come out this year and just in general, and I heavily recommend you check this thing out if you have yet to. If you are a fan of death metal, lovecraftian stuff, or just amazing music in general, this album is right up your alley.
