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.

Nile - In Their Darkened Shrines [2002]

Good and heavy production. Starts off with a massive punch in the face (more like a sledge-hammer). Second track is equally as brutal. Listening to the whole CD is epic... if you have the time to do it. It's a damn good CD overall with only a few drop-offs in brutality, but the artistic creativity of these tracks more than makes up for it. The production certainly isn't their best and is a bit stale and dead. However, it's still heavy, effective, and clear enough to make out all of the instruments.
