The gouging track Lost Sentience has been made available in advance. The fulminating combinations of percussion and guitars tear away the plaster on the walls whilst the demonic vocal gleefully surveys the carnage from above as the audience cowers in the corner seeking refuge from the maelstrom.

Needless to say, the more loudly you play the track, the more you will enjoy Lost Sentience.

God of Nothing - Lorraine

God of Nothing

Through the addition of rhythm guitar God Of Nothing are able to both deliver coiled springs of rage to their output, whilst giving the tracks expressive atmosphere that enables them to cloak with the listener with the enveloping oppression of which their music articulates.

The last of the six tracks on the album is Lorraine.

Silent Silhouette – EP – God Of Nothing is available on iTunes.*

A dystopian industrial darkness settles in to the room as the title track Rondamauh, which has been released as a stand-alone single, surges from the speakers.

Tightly reigned combinations flow through each other, giving the song its deep texturing that captures the essence of the track as Chontaraz use neither furious pace nor scowling menace to deliver their compositions of powerful presence.

Bridge Burner – from the forthcoming release showcases their well measured style of delivery which allows God Of Nothing to develop the themes of their songs in thickly piled layers of sound that stride menacingly around the room.

Endlight – Darker Than Dreams – Single Review

The US dark-metal sextet Endlight released the three track single Darker Than Dreams on the 1st.

Endlight

Endlight

Opening with the Vethes Ariv – if you have not come across Endlight before you may consider that you are in for a symphony as delicate keys and flute disport themselves through the room prior to cascading drums and guitars hurtling, like water breaching a dam, from the speakers in a just over four minute track without vocal.

Next is Frost On The Wind which careens from the speakers prior to developing into an almost eight an a half-minutes of brooding orchestration which splices between two voices of disparate approach and again the flute, which spreads its wings through the piece, allows Endlight to surprise the listener with sounds of haunting fragility – my pick of the release.

The closer on Darker Than Dreams (available on bandcamp) is Worldreaver’s Cry – another track in which the sextet are able to sidestep the listener with a composition of first rate quality and intricate runnels.

I certainly look forward to hearing more of Endlight – a talented and able group of songwriters and musicians – unafraid to travel their own path.
