I think JD is right... it gets better and better the more you listen to it. Advice for those who haven't listened to it more than once or twice - don't count it out just yet.
I just had the same experience recently as well. The midsection of "Devoid of Redemption" is fucking killer.

Also, this:

In the shadows I wander
A solitary man, fearing not the hidden
But searching
In this harsh world of deception, I will stand up once more
And find within myself the strength to stumble again


I love that part of that song.

Best part of the whole album IMO. Would crush my fucking skull live.

Just got the new Winterfylleth
New UFOmammut is sooo good way better than Primum. Ash Borer is tits and Hooded Menace while is pretty good nowhere near Never Cross The Dead.

I have Winterfylleth, and I really like it.

I have Hooded Menace, but I haven't listened to it yet.

I've only heard two tracks from Opus Alter, but based on those, I think you may be right - which is incredible, because I thought Opus Primum was fucking tits. ( . )( . )

I haven't listened to Ash Borer.

I think Foreigner and Given to the Grave are the best tracks on the album. The melodies. God the melodies...

I also like how the whole thing isn't a giant slab of super depressive funeral doom. A lot of the melodies actually sound uplifting. Brett Campbell sounds like he's about to fall on his knees and start weeping, but the album sounds like death shouldn't necessarily coincide with depression, but rather, be embraced with open arms and met head on.

You are one super-philosophical mofo cat.

Well that's genuinely the feel I get from the album. A lot of doom is just about death, depression, death, depression, and more depression. This album actually actually feels deeper than that. Depression and thankfulness exist side by side. It's about relief, acknowledgment - acceptance of one's fate.

Carry me to my grave
When at long last my journey has ended
On the path that leads from here into oblivion
And no more sorrow can weigh me down
