I was searching for other Denver bands then I remembered this gem. I'm not sure why they are listed as being from Denver because this is a supergroup of sorts led by Malefic from Xasthur. Well this has more of an occult feeling then Xasthur but Malefic's keyboards shine through as the highlight, always haunting creepily in the background. I do recommend this album highly and I'm not sure why it's basically overlooked. Expect slow to midpaced, evil occult black metal which quite honestly sounds like a mix between Vrolok and Xasthur.
