…they have produced an album for those who want to rock and look good doing so.
Take the time to really let Initiatio seep into your pores. The payoff is so worth it.
Altogether, SERENE DARK represents a significant advance from the band’s previous manifestation and gives listeners a seamless, varied, and epic articulation of black metal, melodic death metal, old school death metal, and deathcore whilst focusing on a fascinating and poignant psychological exploration.
It truly gives the the sense of traversing high barren fells as you listen…
With gelatinous form it escapes the grasp of a one genre categorization, and its grabbing tentacles move freely from genre to genre catching plankton particles from everywhere it moves.
Bleak despair holds hands with cathartic release.
Death Mantra is further proof of the visceral nature of DSBM when it is done properly, and I am grateful to experience it.
Let this soundtrack be the spark that lights your action for change.
You’ll be hearing these songs in your head over and over and be itching to hear the album once more.
…an intense, visceral journey into the darkness of modern society.
