The Suns of Perdition - Chapter II: Render unto Eden

Rated 4.5/5 (90%) (4 Votes)

With a name like Panzerfaust (one of many bands with that name, this one from Canada), I would have expected maybe some black/thrash, something with speed and brutality. No, these guys are more of an atmospheric black metal outfit and this album also sports a doomy, gloomy, depressing and sometimes "horror" vibe to it. Listening to this, I couldn't help but think that some of the songs would fit perfectly well on the soundtrack of some suspense/horror movie, the kind that's low on gore and other visuals and all about not showing stuff and letting the imagination do the work—the best. Their music is slow to mid-paced and mostly relies on a heavy, poignant atmosphere to do its thing, and it works. There's a beautiful, addictive feeling of crushing despair and suspense throughout, as weird as that might sound, and it really calls for repeated listens. Oftentimes I ended up listening to this 4-5 times in a row without feeling the need to switch to something else. If atmospheric, doomy, borderline epic black metal is your thing, this is certainly worth checking out.
