2.5 averageAlabaster Jones | June 2nd 16

While the third full-length of this one-man blackened death metal project from the UK was one of 2015's pleasant surprises, the debut is much more rough around the edges and simply doesn't possess the nuances that made the later record succeed. The songs are a mess of jumbled ideas that have little flow or transitional prowess. The ideas by themselves are good, and they're performed well, but the stringing together of these ideas leaves much to be desired. The two longest tracks on the album offer some relief from this, as the progressions are drawn out a bit more, allowing for some sense of continuity. Things take on a post-metal feel during this time, and it fits the production style much better than the first four tracks do. The drum machine doesn't help things either, as it feels entirely synthetic despite being composed well enough. Individual moments on this record are good, some even great, but ultimately the execution fails them. It's good to know this problem would be rectified later on.

This is just great, the best of black metal and death metal with epic songs and atmosphere on top of it.
