Mizmor is a deliberate, calculated, and considered sojourn through a monstrous hybrid of extreme genres. This is not such much a steady flow, but a riptide, relentless and smothering. The end result is incredibly exciting black metal from a. Amazingly talented musician.
The riffs are deliciously sludgy, the vocals relentless, and the pounding rhythm section is hypnotic. Their whole sound is unsettling, and deeply textured. It is unfriendly, yet remarkably rewarding.
This is not for everyone, and it never tries to be. You would rarely recommend someone music that is ‘outside their wheelhouse’, and Neptunian Maximalism is outside everyone’s wheelhouse. But, if you are willing to take this ride, it is such a bizarrely enjoyable experience.
