I like how this album has like 2 types of songs. Crushingly dissonant ones and beautiful melodic ones. It's a constant change between those poles. Interesting and, at times, Mgła-sy.
Favorite track: Sinister Lava.
10/10. Builds on previous releases and breaks through with devastating and masterful effect. Every element of this album connects. Killer effort and AoTY material here, without question.
Favorite track: The Seeker.
On ‘Kosmocide’, the band stretches their musical influences even further than before, drawing inspirations from classic Black Metal acts, whilst still being able to maintain the ‘Deus Mortem-sound’ we’ve come to know over the years. Its epic, its aggressive, lightning fast as well as dynamic and structured, the album displays worldclass musicianship, crowned with masterful production by M./Mgla and stunning artworks by Artem Grigoryev and Ihasan Art. ‘Kosmocide’ is an esoteric journey, through tragedies, death and destruction of universal laws – straight to the womb of the raging Chaos.

Not sure how I missed the first album. But said controversy got me listening and I can firmly say this album is just amazing and kick ass in so many regards. This is genius, because this is the Genius behind it all. Stefan Beaudoin
I stumbled upon this great band by me searching for black metal as I’m fairly new to the genre, only listening for just under 2 years and god damn am I blessed to have found this a few months ago. V is definitely my favorite track because god damn listen to those drum patterns holy cow!
Everything about this album speaks to me in such a level I don’t think I myself truly understand what that level is. Thank you 🙏🏽 Miguel Espinosa
"Curse These Metal Hands" parlays the UK bands' chemistry into a record which—for all its tinnitus-inducing ferocity and elegiac arrangements—practically drips with transcendent joy. Bandcamp Album of the Day Aug 18, 2019
