This may just be one of the greatest black metal records of all time. Insane levels of dissonance, chaos in a mind-bendingly coordinated structure, as if DsO summoned the essence of discord from the void and forced it to adhere to an unnatural order. The genius songwriting is matched by the lyrical depth; what can only be described as a philosophical and theological essay set to music. Very few works exist that are so monumental in shattering the boundaries of its genre to reach untold heights.
Favorite track: II.
