The Crowning Quietus

Rated 3.57/5 (71.43%) (7 Votes)

The Crowning Quietus is the second full-length from Inconcessus Lux Lucis and it is a strange affair. With the Latin name, your first thought should be Black Metal and as the intro turns into "Amour Rides Upon Midnight" your suspicions will be confirmed. The song has a fair bit of melody, but the guitars and drums are still the discordant instruments of aural torture you would expect. The vocals are a raspy growl, straddling the line between Black and Death. After the opener, things start to get less defined and by the time you're halfway through the title track, you've transitioned from Black through some thrashy Death Metal to the point where it feels like you've unknowingly put on a Motörhead record. The bass contributes a buzzy rhythm and the guitars play the kind of bluesy solo Wurzel and Phil Campbell were famous for. I kind of like The Crowning Quietus because it is different though purists may not see it that way. It isn't groundbreaking, but it has some appeal to a wide variety of listeners.
