This album is big, expansive and intricate. It conjures visions of infinite darkness’s and swirling chaos in which we are so insignificant that we simply fade away and cease to exist.
I continue to love this band’s work and heartily recommend that you get on board their crazy train to fun town. P.S. bring glitter, lots of glitter!
This is a great album which has been put together by someone who knows what they’re doing and who is happy to break the mould and explore new ideas.
An underappreciated gem from the vaults of black metal, Death and the Beyond offers escapism of the most exquisite kind.
Whisky soaked, bluesy, feel-good and joyous, Cobalt make metal as it should be and the end result is nothing short of addictive.
I cannot recommend this record highly enough and I would rate it up there with the most acclaimed prog-death albums.
‘Mire’ is a seminal piece of writing and execution from Conjurer. This does not sound like a debut album, ‘Mire’ seems much more like the work of an experienced and mature band who have spent a long time crafting their art.
Funeral Chant’s demo has a lot going on within its cobwebbed and blood-stained coffin lid. Displaying a multitude of styles and a considerable amount of musicianship… The songs are generally fast paced and thunderous with catchy riffs and plenty of solos.
If death metal, leather and blood (fake or not) are your jam then I would recommend giving this album a go.
I am going to call it now: Ba’al are going to be huge. This record absolutely floored me on first listen and my love for it has only grown since.
With ‘Timewrought Kings’, Apotelesma have shown themselves to be unique and masterful musicians and this is without a doubt my current top contender for album of the year.
