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.

Arkhon Infaustus - Orthodoxyn [2007]

Another production change-up. The guitars feel less scooped than before and the bass drum has less low-end punch to it. The drums are a little lower in the mix as well. There's even more Doom Metal influence on this album than on "Perdition Insanabilis" and the transition between the two is very sensible and flows very well. "Magnificant Satanas" is fucking brutally awesome. The song structures are more refined. I just wish that they spent less time in the Doom style during the first half of many songs.

Rating: 8.5
