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.

Samael - Reign of Light [2005]

Right off the bat, I am fucking impressed as hell. Unique instrument usage, powerful entry, great production, catchy, and heavy all at once… and that's just the first fucking track. The awesomeness seems like it will carry through to most of the album, judging by the second track. Tracks 4 and 5 are a bit more doomy, maybe even a little bit on the boring side. However, "Telepath" starts kicking ass. It begins to get a bit one-sided towards the middle-end of the album. Overall, it's creative, heavy, well-produced, and pretty well-written even though there's not much difference between the songs.

Rating: 7
