Review Summary: Near to the abyss

To dive the body in a total and gloomy darkness, to get to the brink of despair, to face a merciless panic attack, to succeed in settling down in a mental condition, apparently satisfied from a total absence of light, to run in fields where a debilitated psyche could react for few seconds, then to dissolve, to call off, lingering dazed.

There are no loopholes, no hope in rescue, it is only necessary to surrender to a passive violence, be subjected to dark and subliminal impulses without resisting, just as if a brutal tempest, in full flow, wore us out. An exhausting tempest of hardcore, massive, combined with a distorted and malevolent sound coming from the guitars, in a complete black metal key. A sound that immediately carry us in macabre and miserable fields, almost like it feels empathy. A sound such oppressive as charming, that makes us grateful to the cult of gloomy and chaotic music given to us from the Tempest band.

Thirty-five minutes of electrifying desperation linked with purely melancholic moments. Thirty-five minutes able to fill up the wait from last and exorbitant ‘Passages’. Eight tracks with emotional pressing, claustrophobic and irrational impact. The Canadians were successful to build an icon in the underground with pride and determination. Their nervous post-hardcore is a factory brand unmistakable. This is the best 2015 album!

phenomenal album, and this deserved a review. while this is really good for a first, it also is pretty short so when making your follow up i would say try to focus on saying more. also if you're saying it's the best album of 2015, a 4 seems like a light rating lol
