I have accumulated many personal reviews while listening to albums. My reviewing style is non-conventional and was only intended for myself. Sometimes I will only use one sentence to describe an album if I feel that is all that's required. Other times I will review an album while I'm still listening to it, leading to a song-by-song review of the album (bringing the size of the review to nearly dissertation-level). There are times when I will even come back to a review to add information that I didn't know when originally writing the review. The point is that I won't edit my reviews to make them more readable or conventional. My reviews are always a direct result of what I was feeling when I wrote them and I want to let that feeling come through.

Anaal Nathrakh - The Codex Necro [2001]

Wow. Starts off with a really simple but powerful riff and kicks you in the fucking head. What I really didn't expect was the vocals to be heavily distorted and completely incomprehensible. But then, out of nowhere there's a really quick and small clean voc part. Second track slows it down and starts off with more industrial influence. Seems like this is going to be a decently varied album. Holy fuck, second track is awesome. Third track starts off with a pretty unique riff… I think I'm really going to like this album. Holy fuck… overall, I honestly can't think of any real criticism for the album. I liked every single song on the disk. Talk about a flawless execution of black atmosphere, heavy-ass guitaring, catchy songwriting, and fucking grindstone black metal.
