This reminds me of Anicon in all of the right ways, and it also makes me ask how it is that musicians of this caliber have not yet released a follow-up work. For a debut EP, the grasp of songwriting - ranging from dynamics to writing riffs to so much more - is very impressive. This is black metal that is actually heavy, and it feels oddly organic and warm rather than sterile and cold. I assume that Floods will release a debut LP sometime soon, and when they do, my soul will be ready.
Favorite track: Angels of Failure.
