Over a year since it came out = more than sufficient time to let initial excitement cool down and talk about an album accurately.

I feel like I am the only person who was let down by this album, not just let down but immensely disappointed. The venomous riffs and moments of total shock an awe of their previous releases seem totally absent on this album. I don't feel any sence of a strong fire of inspiration went into it. The song writing that used to be very ambitious and exciting seems very tame and held back. Overall this is a very boring and lackluster album to me and it can't hold the torch at all to Graves or Purifying. I was very surprised to see it so warmly received.



How do you feel about this album.

I partly agree. Not as good as Graves, but still a strong record. Not as weak as you see it in my opinion.

Favorite metal album in recent years, and I think it is Dead Congregation's best.

Where on Promulgation do you get something remotely as good as this: https://youtu.be/54iw2NSk25E?t=25s

Just revisited it again the other day and I love it as much as when it came out. Their best release to my ears, though their best song is still "Teeth Into Red".

Their best work so far. Was confused by the sound at first (specially the snare) but i wouldn't change a thing now. Death Metal mastery.

This album exceeded my expectations. I can't see how you were let down by it.

poast a riff/part from the album that holds up to their previous stuff pls (instrumental track doesn't count because i agree its good!).

Graves an Purifying were almost groundbreaking while Promulgation was 'just' a good death metal album. Element of surprise was gone.

I haven't changed my opinion about it whatsoever. The album is monumental.

I don't imagine it's surprising to anyone to hear me say that however. Laughing

Yeah, I can get behind this. OP, clean your ears and crank up "Only Ashes Remain."

Ties for me with Graves and that is one of my favorite metal albums of the last few years.

Or the 1-2 punch of the title track and Serpentskin, or the spine chilling leads in Nigredo. The album is chock full of indelible moments just like the debut was.
