Yeah they are the business. Funnily enough, I was only thinking earlier how they are like two sides of the same coin in a way. Both achieve this weird, unhinged unpredictable result but from entirely different angles.

The CD has been released with the LP to follow. I was going to wait until the LP was out to order but I couldn't resist!  8)

Have a rip en route. What's your first impression?

I haven't listened to it yet. I ordered the CD so who knows when it will arrive. I might crack and give it a full listen (along with Moon Oracle) before it lands, though.  The post here is frightening at the minute. Still waiting on stuff I've ordered a month or more ago.

I'll go back to my initial assessment of the BDC influence being prevalent. It's all over the album in it's experimentation. Not a bad thing and it makes this the weirdest Antediluvian album yet, by a considerable margin. Will be getting a lot of listens.

They've just completely gone off the rails. It is ridiculous in places, but compelling. Weird album.

Saw these at a very strange festival setting at the weekend - all seated and masked.

I only have 'Revelations in Excrement' and to be honest, I never really liked it that much. Have to say they were something else live though. Absolutely ferocious vocals are what stood out, and they were tight as bejesus. Very odd stage wear choices - green painted faces and what looked like a blanket your granny would knit draped over the guitarist and bassist. They blew me away though. There were times the drums and bass locked into an almost Godflesh-like droning rhythm with the guitar just going mental over the top. Definitely something different.

Watched a few clips last night. Couldn't make out much but enjoyed it none the less. How was the rest of the fest Lorc?

I've yet to see them live but I'm at a point where I'm thinking it might be better to keep them as a bit of a mystery on that front. I'm surprised to hear you never got into them. Check out 'Under Wing of Asael', 'Through the Cervix of Hawaah' and the new one and see if any of those float your goat.

Yeah I'll have to go back to them.

The fest (Ghosts of the Covenant) wasn't great this time. Really muddy sound, being seated, and several of the bands really giving off zero movement or energy didn't help. It all just seemed a bit flat. Ruinous Power were promising sounding, Reversed also decent. Still appreciate the promoters making it happen despite god knows how many obstacles.

I stuck on The Divine Punishment today on the way to and from work. The Beherit influence is really pronounced I think. A complex beast of an album with many little surprises scattered throughout. I'm still not sure what to make of the "666" monologue... it's far too long but maybe that is partly what is cool and challenging about it. That said, it gets annoying  :laugh:

The big Beherit influence is what ties it to BDC for me. In the same boat regarding the 666 tune.
