Lorn - Subconscious Metamorphosis (2013)

Italian black metal. Densely layered, psychedelic, and complex, but not at the expense of a good ol' fashioned ass-kicking -- for reference, see the brutal-but-off-kilter two-note breakdown riff on the leadoff track, "Definitive Conjuction". So, pretty much everything one could ask for from a modern black metal record.

Track listing:
1. Definitive Conjunction
2. Strident Orbits
3. Sidereal Synapsis
4. Fragmented Souls
5. Aeon Fears - Part I
6. Aeon Fears - Part II
7. Aeon Fears - Part III (Cleaving the Diaphragm)
8. Primera Alma
9. XXI
