Asmodée / Press

“The new full-length , Chlorosis is no different than the past Asmodee releases, in that it maintains its individuality while proudly striding forward. It combines the best elements of the past releases into a monster of a record, while discarding any excess luggage, to make a perfectly honed progressive and technical metal masterpiece. It starts out as a state-of-the-art black metal blast, but within the first 20 seconds you know its no ordinary band, thanks to the jaw-dropping bass work and the catchy yet odd riff ideas. I am still listening to this and trying to dissect how the band came up with something so interesting without the crutches so common to black metal. This is heavy but not brutal, dark but not evil and progressive without wankery. It effortlessly slides into my top ten list for 2009.”
