Metallurgical Fire This is another fuzzy, lo-fi older black metal album, but with a unique feel to the percussion. I alternately felt like this was a dance record and a depressive doom record depending on where in a song I was. There is more atmosphere on this album than on many atmospheric black metal albums I’ve heard. It’s harder for me to appreciate this style, but it’s a solid album. Binaural Vibrancy is a banger. Favorite track: Binaural Vibrancy.

Katimavik86 "Groundbreaking" perhaps not but the enclosed description of "hypnotic riffs and trance-inducing ambience" is certainly accurate. Perhaps not "essential" but a solid and well-recommended release. Cosmic black metal indeed. Favorite track: Astral Luminous.
