Is it sludge-doom, or doom-sludge? Either way, it deserves my favourite epithet, i.e. "awesome". With the harsh vocals and heavy riffing, it reminds me a bit of Ramesses. I could have picked almost any track as favourite. There are no weak moments. The world needs more of this. Reuben Sammitch

I will keep this uncharacteristically brief and hyperbolic: this is certainly the best death metal debut album of the past 10 years, and one of the top 10 death metal albums over the same time period in general, breathing the same rarefied air as Ulcerate, Dead Congregation, and Abyssal. I do not need to describe the album because everyone else has done that so well, and there is universal praise for Starspawn all over the internet that you can read at your own leisure. Buy this album and let it transform your perception of what death metal can be. Ippocalyptica
