Metallurgical Fire Everyone who appreciates this album should check out Xul’s debut, Malignance, on Redefining Darkness. It’s a fantastic album that I return to constantly. This one is a strong follow up with a little bit different approach. I don’t yet like it as much as the debut but I’ve only listened a few times. It’s very good though. The vocals are even clearer on this record and could be considered better.

Update: I severely under appreciated this album upon release. It’s a grower, but that’s only because I failed to see how often XUL step out of their blackened death box to deliver a very compelling record. Love me or hate me, it’s somewhat like Dissection or Immortal recording the Black Album instead of Metallica, and that is a good thing. Favorite track: Petrichor.
