Ippocalyptica Arguably better than the already-phenomenal (and similar) Hour of the Centaur by Hate Forest, Precambrian’s Tectonics (another Saenko project) is one of the most well-executed and single-minded black metal albums of 2020. The ferocity, speed, and power, combined with the impenetrable wall of noise and tight songwriting, make for a devastating sonic artillery barrage. Simultaneously rewarding for those seeking immediate gratification as well as deeper nuance over time, this is essential. Favorite track: Cryogenian.

H.L. I discovered this release only after Hate Forest's new milestone "Hour of the Centaur". And actually "Tectonics" is very similar in style. Brutal, blasting, straight forward black metal with harsh screams and the well known mighty growls but without any fancy add-ons. Pure, hypnotic, massive and evil! Favorite track: Archaebacteria.

WolfGang Excellent stuff. Pure hatred. Black Metal at its finest. I don't even have a favorite track. All of them are killer.

Sigurd Kveldulf This would be one of their albums if hate forest was still active. I had my top albums of 2020 picked until I heard this. I can't choose my favorite track because their is a few I like more than the others. If you live in the USA and want a physical copy hellsheadbangers has the cd.

connebert Furious in all the right ways. Utterly relentless, evoking the ceaseless turmoil of the prehistoric planet, with tracks ending as unexpectedly as the seismic shift that the band's name suggests. I'm not a huge fan of Hate Forest (the obvious point of reference), but the sheer brutality of this release has its own enthralling majesty.

tobias_rieper No weak song or riff on this short album. Almost uninterrupted assault of blast beat BM. Hate Forest is an obvious point of reference. Good screams and growls. Songs just stop suddenly and there are too few of them, other than that, amazing in its single mindedness.
