United Kingdom | Black/Gothic (early), Extreme Gothic (now)
2012 release, the 10th album from the British Extreme Metal band. The album finds the band adding the dark Hardcore edge back into their sound and veering away from the direction of the last two albums. The band describe the album as a bestiary, a collection of stories on monsters, including personal demons, chimeras, literary fiends, and world-enslaving entities.
