I saw this only got one review which was what I would expect for someone not too into this type of metal. This is similar to death metal but with much higher pitched screams and more technical music. The chanting on some tracks really pushes this album to greatness and seeing them play this live was incredible, chanting and all.
Best track is 3/4 – download those two and link them together for one hell of a good track.
There are many black metal bands that came to mind when I heard them live and then heard the album and there are many great traits of Behemoth’s older material that I feel influenced Renihilation.
Pitchfork also seemed really into the album as well and they grade VERY hard: [...]
If you like black metal or want a very unique and very listenable heavy album with ghost like screams – get this.
