A staggeringly good CD. Eparistera Diamones is the aural sucessor in many ways to Monotheist. The tortured guitar sound is still there. Glacially slow and grindingly heavy music is still there. Morbidity is still there. The dark compositions reflecting on the usual spiritual themes, meaning, life and death, organised religion etc are still there. However. the CD, if it can be, is more accomplished and mature than monotheist. Immediately the compositions feel a little less challenging and more rewearding, there is more structure, finer textures, and hints of the weirdness and avant-garde direction from earlier days. Eparistera Diamones is a lesson, in many places, that less can be more. Contemporary death metal bands take note- slow down, have less going on, and express yourself more!!
