Subject: 3: Deathspell Omega - The Furnaces of Palingensia From: .jh Date: 2019-12-15T14:50:00Z Tags: music blog best\ of best\ of\ 2019 Deathspell\ Omega The\ Furnaces\ of\ Palingensia ![The Furnaces of Palingensia](/gfx/775127.jpg) For the last fifteen years Deathspell Omega have been at the vanguard of black metal, now that hasn't necessarily changed however for the first time I feel slightly disappointed by a Deathspell Omega album, this one hasn't gotten nearly as much playtime as their previous ones. Sometimes it's hard to pinpoint the exact causes of this, the sounds are unmistakably Deathspell Omega but there is just something that's not there. I think the slower overall tempo and simpler more direct song structures just don't give the same rush as the frenzied chaos of for example something like Devouring Famine from _Paracletus_ or anything from the chaos-fest that is _Fas - Ite, maledicti, in ignem aeternum_. To clarify this is still a very good album, just compared to what I know they can accomplish just a bit disappointing.
