Fourth theme: brings everything back to the unity of indomitable music. The Raag becomes royal, an "oxoriental" masterpiece, I see the world take form in a bluish light, with its centre everywhere and its circumference encompassing the place called nowhere-yet, there is the whole, and I’m looking for the word to name the effect, trance in sobriety, power in serenity, this theme unfolds, comes to surround the first three, now giving them a common meaning, showing that it contains them as one single thing, which is Love Triumphant!
"There are four Orphic furies: The first harmonizes the disconnected and dissonant parts. The second gives the harmonized parts the unity of a whole. The third makes it a unique whole that precedes the parts. The fourth brings it back to the One, which is above the essence and the whole”. So, one after another, these are the four arms of this liberating and already legendary quartet by Cometo.
Cometo is the free Mahadev.

I try to make comparisons to other bands and albums in my reviews because I find that it is the easiest way to give people a sense of whether they will like the album being reviewed, but as is the case with most RORCAL efforts, you have to experience this to understand it. It is sludge and it is black metal and it has elements of other sub-genres, but the approach to songwriting is novel. Who else can take 14 minutes to get an album going and still own your attention? Utterly primal. Ippocalyptica
Pummeling noise from this excellent Swiss noise rock outfit. Band told me there were no plans to release more music under the BRUTALIST name, so enjoy this excellent one-off release! "Piton" absolutely rips. Gabe Rose-Gonzalez
