Construct of Lethe have created a deeply personal, autobiographical concept album dealing with suicidal depression which is meant to be listened to seamlessly as a single song. They've transcended the death metal confines on this album to achieve the kind of expression that encompasses a wide range of emotions and to that extent they've borrowed influences of other styles such as industrial, black metal, doom metal, ambient, etc. and even used synth and electronics to achieve that. The album traverses various dimensions while remaining coherent as well as cohesive, with the writing always coming off as intuitive, flowing naturally and never forced. As the battle rages on with the inner voice coming to terms with the persisting life, one can experience the undulating highs and lows via the music, and more often than not, following moments of bleakness, there's an epic, cathartic outcome as if by way of an epiphany. The upbeat sections replete with the Morbid Angel-esque riffing make an appearance too along with the flurry of leads which the band have perfected over the years. All in all, it's a rich, varied and unique album that needs to be treated differently. It's meant not just to be heard but to be experienced.

For fans of - Morbid Angel, Mithras, Immolation, Nile, Near Death Condition, Hour of Penance
