In Shadow's Embrace

Rated 2.33/5 (46.67%) (3 Votes)

Debut for this US band who play the rather generic "Death/Black/Something" style so prevalent on CM distro lists the last few years. Not to say this is bad, but it does not do anything that has not been done before, and didn't really need to be done again. The riffs are a kind of jangly melodeath overlaid with some quite nice melodic leads. The vocals are a raspy gargle, abut they are really the only 'extreme' element here. Sakrefix are not really bad, but they are almost unforgivably trendy. If you liked In Flames Whoracle, then you should dig this, probably more than I do.

  1. Callous
  2. Desecrator of Light
  3. On Demon Wings
