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 - Ithyphallic [2007]

The guitars are so heavily distorted that I almost crapped my pants. However, every detail of the guitar riffing is still audible making it the perfect brutal guitar sound. This is another epic effort when listening to the whole album with a little more catchiness sparsely strewn within many songs. The snare drum is slightly higher in the mix, much to my delight, giving this album a more Grindcore feel than previous albums

Rating: 8.5
