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.

Marduk - Rom 5:12 [2007]

Starts off very slow compared to most Marduk albums. Really good production… actually, very excellent production. It seems like the album wants to pick up speed after a few songs, but it goes right back into slow stuff. It's a little frustrating, but the frustration just makes songs like "Through the Belly of Damnation" all the more sweet. It's a bit more of an artistic album. In the end, this is a fucking brilliant album with some pitch-black atmosphere. Mortuus lays down some of the most bone-chilling and creatively dirty vocals I've heard in Black Metal.

Rating: 8.5
