A dense and ambitious album from a band that seems to pride themselves on just that.
A great release, with my only gripe being the production.
This release has all the ingredients to become someone’s favorite album.
Cacophonous and suffocating, and at other times melodic and epic, but never hopeful.
One hell of a debut full-length release.
A great release in the realm of blackened death metal.
This isn’t an album that wants to be accessible, and that’s okay.
Some great death metal that just ran a bit long.
Nachash have created a great album and earned a new fan.
Atavisma have a tremendous album in The Chthonic Rituals, as it shows a young band with boundless potential and a great sound.
