drewmusic2113 This is the sound of incipient destruction, of things great in scope and terrible in nature. It's easy to throw a couple dissonant chords together over pounding drums and call it a 'terrifying' atmosphere, but AH very clearly understand that much more than this goes into making music which will truly move you into a place of fear and awe. This was a blind-buy for me, and I couldn't be more impressed. Easily some of the absolute best modern atmospheric black metal, grab your headphones and the key to your safe space and let this album change you. Favorite track: Prison of Shattered Glass.

Jonathan Puryear I have been waiting for this since purchasing the CD version earlier this year. An absolutely crushing album with unrelenting aggression and punishing delivery. Cannot wait to get the vinyl version, ecstatic it's getting the wax treatment it deserves! CHECK THIS OUT! SUPPORT OR DIE!

about

SRUIN046
Originally released on CD in early 2017, Aversio Humanitatis' tyrannical and gargantuan masterpiece "Longing for the Untold" endures an inevitable second skin molt transforming into the true beast it was meant to become and assuming its final harrowing form as we bring you and enhanced re-release on vinyl and tape of this staggering and monumental black metal opus, now re-packaged with three bonus tracks from past splits and EPs as the B side and with new incredible artwork. With “Longing for the Untold” this Spanish band have created a colossal behemoth of technically intimidating and sonically imposing progressive black metal that lunges forth toward the listener with crushing force, levitating out of solid darkness - its mass and shape breath-taking and awe-inducing as it projects its monstrous silhouette against total darkness, resembling the stygian singularity of an inescapable black hole. Reminescent in style and execution to the darkened and cerebral craft of Icelandic black metal bandslike Zhrine, Svartidauði, Misþyrming, and similarly wretched black metal anomalies like Skáphe, and Deathspell Omega, and enhanced by the muscular build of dark death metal bands like Ulcerate, Abyssal, and Gorguts, “Longing for the Untold” more than a thing, is a place and time where the power of sound literally devours the senses turning perception into a smoldering and swarming void of sensorial awe and of transcendental sonic disintegration.
