True, uncompromisingly raw, melodic and atmospheric Black Metal. That's what this American duo from Los Angeles offers us.

Indesiderium, formed in 2012, have already done a couple of full-length studio albums and one split with another LA-based black metal horde, Gravespawn. Of Twilight and Evenfall... is their second outing and it's a well-crafted piece of a black metal. It's got quite a lot of eerie atmosphere thanks to the keyboards, striking rawness of black metal, sorrowful yet beautiful, melodic moments, some folkish passages (on "Lightless Star: Transcending the Chasm") and everything else that one may crave for a decently done black metal album. In a way, the band somehow tends to remind me of Swedish black metal patrol Mörk Gryning which was very good at wrapping up the rawness of black metal with really cool, catchy melodies. It's no wonder they chose to cover "The Knell and the World" by Swedish melodic black metallers Dawn. Overall, the album is inspired by the more melodic side of the Swedish black metal scene of the early to mid-nineties, which I consider the best period in black metal's entire history.
