Katimavik86 I got as far as the second tune before buying the discography. Favorite track: Dispossessed Phrenic Antiquity.

Cody Drasser Intricately woven tapestries of crushing riffs, furious blasts and melancholic acoustic passages that clash, morph, splinter, melt and collapse into one another. The entire album seems like one long trip, with beginnings and endings appearing only out of necessity to allow the human mind to comprehend what is happening. Music flung from some other strange universe and beamed into ours. Eerie, strangely emotional, organic and passionately played death metal. Phenomenal and recommended.

PannionSeer Haunter strike a great balance between arcane brutality and complicated, knotty melodic structures. This is exactly what I look for in blackened death metal--and calls to mind the psychedelic feel and heady atmosphere of Esoctriluhum, and the satisfyingly harmonic-yet-dissonant riffing of Anicon. Favorite track: Dispossessed Phrenic Antiquity.

Devin Capote this band has greatly exalted the grand upheaval of progression one would expect from them, and pushed their growth past much further boundaries. sacramental death qualia is firmly grounding their music deep in the supraliminal, which their compositions have reflected with increasing clarity to this point. unbelievable musicianship coming from these human beings, phenomenal album. Favorite track: Spoils Vultured Upon Sole Deletion.

leeguentert5 What’s not to love about these songs? Intricate, brooding, and diverse. I Voidhanger keeps their streak alive. AOTY contender!

"Indomitable with a maturity, aggression and complexity, “Sacramental Death Qualia” is the expected step forward in terms of both expressivity and personality. This release is going to impose them on the same audience of bands like Gorguts, Blut Aus Nord, Akercocke, and early Opeth: bands that become reminiscent throughout the album.
Mastered by Brendan Sloan (Convulsing), “Sacramental Death Qualia” is a true experience of conscience's awakening; a progressive album where the unrelenting violence of death metal and the obscurity of black metal are sewn together by mind-bending, complex arrangements that are the epitome of change. HAUNTER's compositions constantly morph and evolve with never-ending creativity, chasing forms at the same time ferocious and elegant, destructive and gentle. Acoustic passages of ethereal beauty, where delicate guitars draw melancholic and autumnal melodies counterbalance the band's untamable fury during the most frenetic moments."

Track Name: Dispossessed Phrenic Antiquity
Impetus - Motivation, felled
Dragging its directionless limbs

Fickle and feeble
Still leading; that of an oaf
Catalyst - The first gleams of light
Breach the threshold of the horizon
Onto barren soil

Dusty and overgrown weeds
Unquenched, fragility visible in the cracks
Arms embossed with torrent
Momentum propelled in agony

Genesis of an age of sacrament
Bore no fruit as without self-realization
Self-delusion in ‘pilgrimage'
Incendiary pathways presented
Incalculable thus innumerable

Thine vestibule arrives
Terrestrial; below sentience
Permeating the imaginal
Far beyond the lateral knowledge
Poisoned with the virus of modernity
Luster - engram ad infinitum

Shapes subsisting in spirit
Blueprint of inner cosmogony
Writhed in distance

The initial inch toward the infinite journey
One travelled before. Consistently in ancient histories
A conclusion and encapsulation
A duplication of what has been before
A sacrament unto your own purification
This cleansing, one that is home
Track Name: Spoils Vultured Upon Sole Deletion
In an ominous expanse
Arid winds, carrying dense dust, ash, and bone
Afar resounds, a stark call
Sinews to a grand cacophony

Enveloped in mirages stumbled
In the sunken sands
Restless spirits guided by the resonance
Seeking its essence
Provenance of the decree

Assumption of command left to a vacant heir
Parched and clawing for that bitter ale
The whole truth’s essence diminishes

Clutched in the vice's grip
Ego-driven; zealous fantasy
How many times have you
Imbibed, Ingested
Numb the esoteric with exoteric
Stimulation with exaltation
Overfed; you will collapse
On your vice-laden altar

Desacralization of the vessel
Corroding the soul
Solidifying the illusory
Track Name: Subversion of a Heathen Tongue
Chthonic manifestations
Vibrating in the flesh -
Bound to lunar calendars
Guiding the hand,
That which asphyxiates;
Behold this
Extinguishing of sentience

Instinct ad imaginal
Obscene augory
Blood-spilling vanity, luxury and extravagance
Personified in primordial lust.
You are privy to a great becoming.
You rightly tremble.
Ye who oppose me -
Maimed and lacerated
Symphonies of bone severance
Grin-inducing euphoric shiver
Trepanate, sprinkle lead
you on your throne

A Judas cradle
You are privy to a great coming

Subversion of a heathen tongue
The primitive substance that manifests
The perfidies of centrifugal cogency
Track Name: Sacramental Death Qualia
An accumulation reinforced
Dilute of subjugation
The defeatist’s requisition
Denied the qualia of severance
A sacramental death
Accounted for on your behalf

Capsuled in the form of desecrated shrine
Hexed beyond the seizure of the functional universe
In the lapse of the volatility
The intimate dwelling of this
Entropic repression of deletion

As i held myself to a lower rung
To the deafening hammers of decay
Promulgating the edge
And the boundary of sentience
And consciousness
By the grace of the old ones
Mirage of omniscience
To relapse volatility
And forget my undoing
This thought invoking conflict
Whether death heals all wounds

The defeatist’s requisition
Denied the qualia of severance
A sacramental death
Accounted for on your behalf
