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.

Rotting Christ - Genesis [2002]

Erie beginning. Promising first track. Pretty good production, too. Looks like this is going to be good competition for SD. The underlying keys create an atmosphere of darkness and malevolence. It's not quite as dark as SD, and there's more emphasis on the melodic riffs. It's very good and creative at some parts, but it still doesn't quite capture the black and ominous feel of SD.

Rating: 8
