3.5 greatAlabaster Jones | July 31st 17

Sometimes subgenres can be really hit or miss and this whole "post-black" scene is definitely one of those for me. Still, stuff like End Of Chapter hits because they stick true to what one of the cornerstones of black metal are: forceful emotion. It's apparent hearing these guys hammer out these riffs that wouldn't sound out of place on a Blut Aus Nord record with intense pressure, hearing the drummer blast endlessly away on his kit reminiscent of how Lev Weinstein of Krallice does it, and hearing the vocalist not only howl like an animal in the darkness, but beautifully incorporate clean vocals really engraves just how emotional things are. Au-Dessus may not be playing anything completely original on this first full-length of theirs, but it's hard not to be engaged when there's that much emotion flying around. The production is a little clean for my tastes, but if you're a fan of atmo-black/post-metal you shouldn't ignore this one.
