I've come back to this album to give it it's well-deserved due.
The interpositions are coherent and cold, it's all put together really nicely which adds to the effectiveness of it's depressing atmosphere, and to it's faculty-decimating power.
Throughout the album it often reminds me of the great Bathory, which is always a good thing.

Although the main trademarks are the same, means alternating clean vocals and screams, this release is different as NIETZU's atmospheric black metal back catalogue. Without doubt, "The Distant Engines of Our Demise" is the most doom oriented and gloomy release so far. But for me that comes along with a reduced catchiness and dynamic, so it is really difficult to name a real favourite this time and the forerunner "Gnosis Coda" stays my favourite NIETZU album so far.
