4.0 excellentRoundOnEndHiInMiddle | August 5th 17

If the old saying is to be believed and "music is reflection of self", then the dudes that made White Halo must be nothing but volatile lightning balls of frustration, depression, pain, and inner turmoil. Because while a reductionist point of view would see this record as Envy with a splash of Deafheaven, Heaven In Her Arms make sure that this music amounts to more than that. That's apparent even from the opening riff cascades of "Abyss Of The Moonbow"; the oftentimes empathetically painful experience of this tear-filled combination of screamo, post-rock, and blackgaze with a dash of powerful vocals is able to affect the listener in a way that merely summing the album up to be a marriage of two band influences just isn't enough. Some of this stuff sounds like funeral songs fed through a screamo laminator and it's downright beautiful, emotionally potent music. Basically, you can call White Halo Envy and Deafheaven's child, but you've got to concede this child is more than simply an amalgam of his parents. It's got a consciousness of its own and it's damn wonderful.

challenging as usual, not so much in a good way. ironically, the most straightforward envy-style track (last one) is the best. the rest are...odd but listenable
