Time Unveiled features nine tracks of sinister Black Metal that incorporates elements from different schools. The opening track: Triumph Again, kicks off with harsh guitar riffs that have a doomy edge, and the rasping vocals overlay with deadly aim. Berserker, (my favourite track so far) has a nicely sinister feel, and a mayhemic riff that sounds ready to go right over the edge, but brings itself back in time for the onslaught of the blasting verses and hate filled vocals. In contrast is the symphonic sounding Slave To The Grave, that leads the listener in to a false sense of calm before grinding the soul with another harsh, metallic riff. My only criticism of this otherwise excellent album would be a slight inconsistency in the mix.
Some tracks have an obvious difference in sound levels, and the vocals end to overpower the instruments in certain cases. But this isn't enough to deter me from proclaiming how good I think this album is. And since when has the sound quality been the most important element of extreme metal? Pay no attention to my poserish rants, and instead - go to Aurora Borealis's web site at http://www.auroraborealis.org where you will find details on how to obtain this fine CD.
