Per Erebus ad Astra

Rated 2.6/5 (52%) (5 Votes)

There are hints of Black and Death Metal in this, but the core of it is fast, highly technical Thrash that drinks deep from the well of classic Anacrusis. The song structures are complex and sometimes sound chaotic without actually being chaotic – just by virtue of having a lot going on, they sound like they might fly out of control at any moment. There are a ton of riffs and time changes, and so there is always something going on to keep you interested. This reminds me of Vektor's fine debut, if not as frantic as that, and with a much better production job. Vocalist Taylor Scott effortlessly transitions between Thrash harshness and a deeper, deathy roar, all while maintaining a degree of intelligibility. Overall, I just find this a massively entertaining album that mixes technicality, heaviness, and ferocity in just the right proportions.
