Syncretist thumbnail
Syncretist it's extremely difficult to pick a favourite from this album, it seems like the genesis of two different "modes" misery index has.

there's early mi style grinds like naysayer and more involved killing gods/theocracy style songs like rituals of power. all welded together with that trademark misery index tone and a standout drumming performance by adam jarvis.

jarvis seems to take what would be straight forward rythms to another band and add in all sorts of small variations that reward closer listening, all while retaining a crushing sound and tightness that multiples the intensity of the hooks and vocals.

the years of touring and practice this band have put in really shine through on this record, I've been an avid fan since discordia and they never seem to put a foot wrong. here's to another 15 years of savagery.
