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.

Behemoth - Zos Kia Cultus [2002]

First track is actually a bit weak. The second track, on the other hand, is a fucking brutal kick in the nuts with spiked boots. A major complaint I have is that the drums are weakly recorded. Also, the overall production feels a bit stale, probably because there's no sign of re-verb at all until shit slows down. The writing is what I've come to expect from Behemoth. It's not really my style, but at the same time they do some things so well that I can't help but enjoy it. This album in particular is actually a bit slower and less extreme than stuff from Demigod.
