Mare Cognitum “returns” with a re-release of their debut album, “The Sea Which Has Become Known“, one of the more visceral atmospheric black metal releases ever unleashed upon the public ear. Usually when a band from this genre puts out a release, it fully emphasizes more on the layers of atmosphere and is typically slower in many aspects. Few bands can put forth a power drive and stay truly atmospheric…Darkspace comes to mind. However, cosmic and atmospheric is something Mare Cognitum does right and this album will also shred your face with raw guitars and vocals. After one full listen, I am hooked.
