I'm sure the technical musicianship on this album will confuse many listeners into thinking this is disorganized and thrown together (as a previous reviewer stated), but the overall effect for me is that this album has many layers and hidden patterns that will take some effort to understand. But I remember feeling that way about Extol, Cryptopsy, Gorguts, Nile, etc. and quickly growing to love the intricacy. In other words, if you have a good attention span and an open mind, you might just like this album. It sometimes reminds me of a more electronic-sounding Emperor...

I got this album for free at a record store and had never heard of them before. I decided to listen to it because of the earache label on the back. This album has the vocals and speed of black metal but the keyboards arent operatic. They are more techno/electronic. This gives the album an original and enjoyable feel. There are changing tempos and the album does not get boring like too many black metal albums. It is definately a technical album and has good replay value. I would definately recommend this album to any black metal fan.

I'm listening to Rephormula as I write this and I think this album is the most challenging I've ever heard. That's a big call considering I listen to Dillinger, Cynic, Opeth, Emperor and a variety of old jazz fusion bands. It's exceedingly dense, highly layered and very diffficult to get into. It's also one of the few black metal albums that truly manages to sound scary.

I would describe it as a kind of free-form black metal - no rhythm stays constant for more than a few seconds. There's electronic beats but I think I'm correct in assuming the drumming is done the old-fashioned way? If so, it's some of the most twistedly brilliant percussion I've ever heard. The keyboards have a kind of "pipe organ" effect which makes the whole album sound somewhat like an evil church. Listening to this album reminds me of the gothic horror of Lovecraft and the movies of Dario Argento (if you've seen Suspiria you'll know what I mean).

The drumming is clearly the focal point of the album, followed by the keyboards. The guitars and vocals, although superficially quite prominent, are essentially backing instruments. It's an experience, though whether it's a good one, I'm not quite sure. Buy it if you want to hear an original take on black metal or simply want to be sonically challenged.
