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.

Profundi - Omega Rising [2006]

Album is very well-written and chaotic from start to finish. The songs are catchy, but brutal. Very good use of melody throughout. The style is a bit too consistent at times, but that's being nit-picky in this case. There's plenty of variation to keep things interesting until the end. The production is my only serious complaint. It's necro, sure, but it's a bit too chaotic and there are plenty of times where lead instrument lines will get buried by keys or effects. It's definitely not a really heavy production, but it's passable and tolerable. It's also not the most creative of albums, but the writing on this album earns it high marks.
