4.5 superbMetaltronic | August 14th 15

Based on the album cover I was expecting some brutal, freakish, Gnaw Their Tongues style raw black metal, but
that isn't exactly what As All Light Leaves Her is. This is actually a pretty versatile and varied album, with
moments that feel like Lantlos or maybe even Deafheaven, put right up against spots that sound as tortured
and terrifying as a project Leviathan; and when I say spots & moments, I mean that those parts are put next to
each other in the same song, and amazingly it doesn't create any kind of musical whiplash. Advent Sorrow
covers a LOT of musical bases on here, and it's honestly an amazing surprise. If you're a fan of ANY black
metal style, I influence you to listen to this; the band does everything from symphonic to depressive to
traditional 2nd wave to post-black, and it all sounds great. The vocals even vary quite a bit, from high pitched
Burzum-style shrieks to standard black metal wretches to parts that feel a little death metal influenced.

EDIT: This is also way way way way WAY better than their EP. If you tried that and didn't like it try this, it sounds
like a completely band and it is so much more interesting.

4.5 superbDimorphic | November 8th 15

I just want to say that I've not heard their EP. But the tags suggest this band is symphonic
black metal. No way. Don't believe the tags. A little bit of piano occasionally, but other
than that this is quite simply an excellent DSBM effort. I would class this genre as DSBM
definitely - very accessible for the genre. The vocals are genuinely monolothic in effect.

It takes a lot for a scream to affect me in BM, but some of the moments that appear on this
album are... genuinely painstaking. You can feel the emotion coursing through. Massively
surprised, very good album.

EDIT: Repeated listens confirm this to be, in my opinion, a solid 4.5. Really, really killer

2015 was the year when a Dimmu Borgir third rate clone became an interesting DSBM band thanks to
this album. Pretty good modern DSBM music.
