Just a compelling album through and through. It took a few listens to grow on me, but it really does live up to all the hype. It is epic and well composed. Tracks are filled with strong riffs supporting catchy melodies. The lyrics themselves, whether or not you buy into conspiracies, are deeply unsettling and filled with foreboding. It was really hard to pick a favorite track, but Enthroned in Clouds of Fire is amazing.
Favorite track: Enthroned in Clouds and Fire.
