The crackle both summons a cold campfire and a Nosferatu film reel. What a fantastic atmosphere. This is everything black metal should be: dark, gothic, icy, emotive, depressed and triumphant, yet dare I say, romantic. Romance in the modern sense as well as in the older sense of passion and drama, stage plays in dim and melancholy theatres. The pacing and breath within and between songs is also phenomenal. Wow, what a record. pinkytheent

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.
