On their 11th studio release, Nephilim Grove, the band take a hard turn down the right-hand path. Even in its more melodic and dulcet moments, the album packs a massive punch. Tracks like The Witness Marks and Adagio include the band's traditional doom metal elements, but their ferociousness stands front and center. The record is a departure from 2017's Hamartia, which vocalist Paul Kuhr described as "new colors, new sounds, the same bad-assery" -- this time around, the latter is the most important aspect, with each song wearing its brutality on its sleeve and couching its depressive and emotional side from a place of rage. As producer Dane Swanö, famous for his work with Opeth and Dissection, bluntly puts it, "I know I say this all the time, but it is their best so far."
