Sarcoptesfrom the US have found a way to infuse thrash metal elements into their classic black metal template and even write epic songs that are over a dozen mins long. The songskeeppulsating and arefull of variations. This is the highly anticipated follow up full length to their acclaimed previous EP. Two of the songs can be streamed onBandcampHERE, including a 13-min one.

After giving us a taste of what's to come with their stunning EP in 'Plague Hymns',Sarcoptesbring us their highly awaited full length and it's got everything they've promised and more. They've mastered the art of writing near 15-minute epic songs that are an immaculate blend of black and thrash metal laced with atmospheric bits for further emphasis and have alternated them with shorter ones on this album. Each of the songs follow an interconnected series of historical tragedies in chronological order and it's brilliantly thought and expressed over here, from the events of World War I to the Vietnam war. It's an intense, balanced and absorbing album that keeps you riveted because of the constantly changing patterns and structures and stands out in the style for doing their own thing. If you're into fast, driven, thrash-influenced black metal with a flair for storytelling, you definitely need this in your collection.
