The Apostates

Rated 4.13/5 (82.5%) (8 Votes)

The Apostates is an interesting album from French Glorior Belli, mixing black metal—the late ā€˜90s/early 2000s French sound—with some black ā€˜nā€™ roll-ish passages here and there. What sets this album further apart from the crowd is that they also throw in some blend of heavy metal, rock and a little bit of alternative rock, which is something Iā€™d usually steer clear of, but the band has managed to make this unholy mix work as a cohesive ensemble. Despite some tracks being more upbeat while others are more doomy or "evil" sounding, it all kind of works together. The result is a very rich album with something new to discover on every listen.
