Damn, ordered all the tapes except for WHTN like one week ago.
Just got into Mgla with that one and conviction and focus are good words from recent posts to describe what I felt as well without knowing anything about their background in terms of music and concept.
From the beginning on it felt like a very personal album, one on which the music itself makes up just half of the experience.
That's one reason why this album still grows with every listen for me. As I can still listen to this every week I actually tried to wait for re-presses of the older material, but due to the upcoming gigs at Deathkult and Prague Death Mass I wanted to get into all this stuff now and bought these tapes.
Usually I don't buy multiple copies from one release, but Mgla seems to be well worth every penny.

I guess that Call From The Grave Zine is sold-out by now, still any chance to get it somewhere or to just read that Mgla interview?

This album is pretty awesome. It didn't immediately blow me away like the EPs, but it definitely grew on me and I think it will continue to grow on me. Sometimes music I don't initially think much of ends up becoming my favorite, while things that are immediately gratifying can become forgettable.

This might get me kicked out of music, but am I the only one who thinks this band kind of sounds like a more evil BM version of like Level Plane records bands or something? Mostly just the guitar, but sometimes it reminds me specifically of Amanda Woodward or City of Caterpillar etc.

Also, the drumming on this album is fucking insane.

Ha. I know what you're talking about. When I first heard it, I was thinking they must like post rock or something.

Incredible how we keep reading so much bullshit on this forum. There's not much albums than can stand above all criticism, but WHTN definitely can. Songwriting, production, lyrics, execution, everything works perfect as a whole: this record doesn't have ONE SINGLE weak point. You have to be either deaf or don't understand one single bit about music if you say this is weak.

What.


Yeah, no words for that idiocy. Also, the spoken part in the beginning was indeed performed live. I think it has been put on YouTube.

Not surprising to me at all, and it's not an isolated case imho, ie Ravenmoon Sanctuary sounds like French emo, Satans Sign Of War's LP like some old unreleased Orchid material (if they were drunk), etc... It's just that with most metalheads being so exclusive (or narrowminded, or prejudiced) with what they listen to, they tend to be unaware of other underground subgenres and the striking similarities they unintentionally share soundwise ... I doubt Mgla intended to come off this way though, haha.

Revisiting this album. Passed it off at first, but now I can see it's hidden charm. Some seriously powerful black metal is being displayed here.

What. is right. The last song is the strongest, I think. Love the way it builds up.

There is something very heroic and triumphant about this album.
