In 2017 I reviewed 12 releases of that year. Three of them got a 4.5 (out of 5) rating: “Kainskult” of Trepaneringsritualen, “The Place Of Dead Roads” of Ex.Order and “The Developing World” of Am Not.
Every time I listen to “Kainskult” is seems to be getting better. So perhaps I should say that this album is crawling to a five out of five. This is certainly the album of 2017 to me. What helps a lot is that it is by and far the best album of Trepaneringsritualen so far. The other two albums that I mentioned are also great, but both Ex.Order and Am Not have releases that are even better.
