Erik Hoffman Bought for Botanist, found Oskoreien who has some beautiful melodies and repeating riffs you don't want to see end. Hammered dulcimer (NOT GUITARS) sounds as good as ever on the Botanist tracks. Favorite track: Deterministic Chaos.

ibew This EP is just killer all around - each side of the split offers a different flavor of quality heavy music. Favorite track: Deterministic Chaos.

Nerve Salad With a Botanist seal of approval, I've dropped in for the Oskoreien... excellent atmospheric BM, has a little industrial/darkwave feel to it, with the title track standing out brilliantly .. On the flip is.... well, I've been a Botanist fan for a while and I always look forward to a new album... arums, orchids, fungi, etc. I'm no stranger to the subject matter. This is a great split, and both bands deliver impressive experimental black metal along with their own individual dark charm. Favorite track: Varkoor.

Track Name: Deterministic Chaos
Within
Without
Transformation complete
Above
Below
Compulsion borne of despair
Subsumed into an entity unrecognizable
Hatred manifested in flesh
of self
of other
of all
Beyond control
Beyond repair
Toward the within

From what deception
Does self derive?
A prison of the mind
An eternal
unconscious
lie
Track Name: Without You I'm Nothing
Strange infatuation seems to grace the evening tide.
I'll take it by your side.
Such imagination seems to help the feeling slide.
I'll take it by your side.
Instant correlation sucks and breeds a pack of lies.
I'll take it by your side.
Oversaturation curls the skin and tans the hide.
I'll take it by your side.

I'm unclean, a libertine
And every time you vent your spleen,
I seem to lose the power of speech,
Your slipping slowly from my reach.
You grow me like an evergreen,
You never see the lonely me at all

I take the plan, spin it sideways.
I fall.
Without you, I'm nothing.
Without you, I'm nothing.
Without you, I'm nothing.
Take the plan, spin it sideways.
Without you, I'm nothing at all.
