Mare Cognitum – An Extraconscious Lucidity (2015 Remaster)

I don’t really do a whole lot of remasters, but this disc was originally released in 2012 and has been remastered in greater quality for 2015. As for Mare Cognitum, it is a one-man atmospheric black metal effort that mixes in traditional black metal elements with thick soundscapes in way that makes the record seem like “black metal in space.” Now this style is hardly new, with acts like Krallice and Pulsar Colony creating similar atmospheres, but Mare Cognitum have definitely done it justice with a record that sounds even better than it did just a few years back. That being said, it’s not exactly an ancient album and probably didn’t need a remaster, but if it’ll help this little known act to get greater recognition, then I’m all for it.
