Antithesis of light metallum

EVOKEN LYRICS

I do not recommend this album to many people. The bass notes and melodies spread out and lose definition the longer they echo throughout the music, like drops falling into a puddle and the ripples subsequently reverberating outwards.

And I know what you're thinking right about now, fannyflustered Evoken fan: I always lament when an album gets to this point in popularity, because usually from that point onwards you can't ever get any meaningful discussion out of a conversation about the album - you'll get a bunch of vague terms like "awesome", "atmospheric", "heavy" and so on but no one ever actually wants to think about what the album fucking sounds like.

It manages to feel only somewhat off when the band are at their absolute slowest, but when they're at faster speeds it starts to become painfully obvious that the transitions are painfully awkward and unfitted seriously, listen to around 1: Aside from those atmospheric oddities, though, the music's pretty standard for funeral doom standards in the compositional sense.

That's really just about the best way to sum up my reaction when people talk about the album in this manner: I mean, it's objectively kind of dark and somewhat mystical, I'll give it that, but the band use so many stereotypically "dark" elements that it doesn't feel particularly impressive that their overall vibe landed somewhere in that general direction.

By this I mean, they are never boring and will not make you want to change the song. Well, you got the idea.

The one thing I have to criticize, however, is that the snare and a couple of cymbals sounded too tinny. One of my complaints about Quietus was its production. I admire the bass and the vocal performance on Antithesis of Light greatly, and usually when I'm actively listening to this album I'm not nearly as openly critical of it as I have been with this review.

I mean, it's objectively kind of dark and somewhat mystical, I'll give it that, but the band use so many stereotypically "dark" elements that it doesn't feel particularly impressive that their overall vibe landed somewhere in that general direction.

I mean, it's objectively kind of dark and somewhat mystical, I'll give it that, but the band use so many stereotypically "dark" elements that it doesn't feel particularly impressive that their overall vibe landed somewhere in that general direction. AoL kicks your ass from start to beginning with its majestic production.

The guitar riffs, for one. Not that I think they should be removed for quality's sake, but if the synths were gone I think this album would actually be a lot more effective at sounding as "dark", "evil", "horrendous", and so on as most people seem to think it is.

I was in for a ride. The entire sound is so dark and mysterious and the vocals -" "lol" "WHAT. The bass notes and melodies spread out and lose definition the longer they echo throughout the music, like drops falling into a puddle and the ripples subsequently reverberating outwards.

Their melodies are rather irrelevant, though, and honestly the highlight of the band's performance is the bass guitar. I hate this phenomenon even when it affects albums I personally love to death, so I thought that today I might do a bit to dispel at least one case of this that particularly annoys me.

The keyboards are excellently done. Well, it's actually pretty much everything else. It manages to feel only somewhat off when the band are at their absolute slowest, but when they're at faster speeds it starts to become painfully obvious that the transitions are painfully awkward and unfitted seriously, listen to around 1: The guitarwork will generally consist of downtuned powerful chords and clean reverbed guitar floating atop the music.

They have it down better than Disembowelment can ever dream to have had it.

If you are ready to delve into pure darkness and negativity, then feel free to give Antithesis of Light a listen. If not, then I. And so on, I popped the CD in and was prepared to be underwhelmed because I thought Quietus was a quite a benchmark to be pitted again.

Thankfully, I was wrong. Although just like Quietus, Antithesis of Light (AoL) was inaccessible. The list I present to you today includes all of the albums which, as of December 31st,either currently has or at some point has had, an average score of 90% from 10 or more reviews on the Metal Archives.

Similar to, say, Immolation's Close to a World Below or Lykathea Aflame's Elvenefris, Antithesis of Light is one of those albums that actually seems to have developed such a devoted sect of circlejerking fans that at this point it's probably more notable for its hype than the album itself.

I always lament when an album gets to this point in popularity, because usually from that point onwards you can't ever get .
