Review

Whether it's the grisly grandeur and hypnotic, hyper-speed intensity of The Omniscient, whose nine-and-a-half minutes seem to stretch and dilate in defiance of all natural laws, the stunningly malevolent, yet shamelessly majestic, melodies of Of Dementia, or the doom-laden denouement of Nylarthotep, Cosmicism contains some of the most engaging, engrossing, and viscerally compelling material of the band's career. - 5/5
