"...What’s even more striking in relation to this is how desolate and monolithic the album comes off. The refined writing sounds primitive with how intense the recording/mix is. Paul Riedel’s vocals sound like they’re echoing from a cave in aeons past. It’s the primitive nature of the album that probably won’t surprise listeners, but it will immerse them in the experience. Starspawn is the kind of album that needs your full attention, as it blooms and wilts constantly.
Clocking in at only five tracks and just over thirty-five-minutes, Starspawn isn’t a long descent. When all is said and done it weirdly feels surprisingly short. And this is coming from a guy who usually reviews grindcore. Nevertheless, this also shows how immersive Starspawn is. And while Wormed are off waging nano-tech warfare, Blood Incantation is a less aggressive, more ambient approach to the depths of space that will please old school and modern fans alike. Get lost. Let yourself float. Asphyxiate. We all drift out here."
