From California, Botanist is a one-man black metal project based around hammered dulcimer. This album is truly experimental, haunting and ferocious. - EVR Staff

Some of my favorite things about this band are at their most forceful and concise here. Of the three full-lengths, this record has the best production in my opinion; just raw enough. Rife with beautiful and intricate arpeggiation, Yellow Eyes' songs are subtle in their experimentation, showing up most in odd melodies and atypical song structure. Really, what a treasure this band is! Ben Stephenson
