Wasting very little time with its opening salvo "Sidereal Lifespan," the album first grabs you by the throat before circling the listener like a vulture. They may still tread on the left-hand path, but besides resurrecting a certain idea of the underground – some may say "true" – that seemingly disappeared back in 1991, it's actually how genuinely evil and undiluted their death metal is that's most striking about Unveiling the Threshold.
Mostly written by Gui, with contribution by Lucas – who came up with all the music for "Adorned With The Black Vertebra" and helped co-write "Repulsive Recollections" – yet with all four members pitching in for arrangements, the whole album was ironed out throughout 2019. To keep it raw, they opted to record everything by themselves in their rehearsal room in Tourcoing, nearby Lille, in France before handing the result over to Greg Wilkinson from the now-(in)famous Earhammer studios (Necrot, Undergang, Acephalix, etc.) for the mix last June.
