oliviervp This is a mesmerizing orchestral masterpiece of pure genius epicness. Too bad that I already posted my AOTY list for 2019 before discovering this album because it would definitely have made it to that list. Favorite track: Zerfall.

themighywhatever This album has it all. Chilly parts, fast and blasting parts, heavy parts. A vocal range that reaches from great singing with choir to very aggressive and just awesome screaming. The lyrics are very well thought out and well written. It's an epos. It's a journey. It's a masterpiece. Please, please give those talented guys their well deserved 10 bucks and buy this album. This wonderful album is worth every cent and especially every minute of your life.

Zerfall sees Black Forest Metal act FINSTERFORST return to the serious and elegiac soundscapes of classics as Mach Dich Frei (2015) on their fifth studio album, instead of the stylistic intermezzo of predecessor #YOLO (2016). The Germans` emotional brand of post black metal gives vent to endless rage with pounding riffs and astonishing orchestral elements (”Wut”) – and then flows into the somber choirs of the title track. The centerpiece and culmination of it all has to be the 36-minute long (!) “Ecce Homo” though that unfolds into a majestic post metal journey crowning FINSTERFORST’s songwriting career so far. A complex and mature piece of art that will mesmerize old and new fans alike.
