Resonant Echoes from Cosmos of Old

Rated 3.4/5 (68%) (5 Votes)

This is some really cool second-wave black metal largely influenced by the speedy Scandinavian scene, mixing the Swedish and Norwegian styles, as well as the distinctive Greek scene. It's an interesting ride that takes you from blazingly fast, savage black metal to a more laid-back and melodic, yet dark and crunchy style reminiscent of the likes of Rotting Christ and Varathron, with a few symphonic elements that sometimes remind me of Emperor, though not as over the top. There's even some Burzum-esque atmospheric keyboard part to add some chills to the party. Put all this in a blender to generously spread a daunting, depressive-yet-aggressive atmosphere on top and Prometheus have something a little different on offer here, taking some of the best of the '90s and doing their own thing with it. It feels kind of all over the place at times, but in a good way. A band to watch.
