1. Beyond The City Of Sepulchres (10:10)
Metal genres collide as Black metal meets Goth metal. We love both genres, but this track is a bit painful to the ears. It all boils down to the production. The percussion has a low electronic feel and the vocals could be good if produced well.
2. Deathly Mesmerism (2:48)
A spoken word electronic interlude... move on.
3. Ghost Signal Emitters 10:32
Some decent wretched vocals with ominous echoes carry this song. The operatic Goth vocal moments are too upfront and take way from the gritty black metal feel.
One man band albums are tough to pull off. There is some creativity scattered throughout this album, but it just needs to harnessed.
This is the 16th release from Opium Grave, between singles, EPs and albums.
If this album was well produced, it could be something special. We need more bass to carry the album.
Drown out the sound with I Double Dare You Imperial Stout. Brewed by Andrson Craft beer in Estonia, this 13% Stout may help numb the brain while listening.
