Lightless Violent Chaos

Rated 0/5 (0%) (0 Votes)

I've been listening to this album for a while and I've found it hard to get away from it. Black Crucifixion play doomy black metal with kind of a late '70s sound that gives it a bit of a groovy prog rock vibe that I find absolutely addictive. The press release mentions Pink Floyd and there's definitely some of that in there. You think « black » and « doom » would stand for dark, aggressive and depressing (among other things), but the band's approach leads more to a chill, relaxing atmosphere that makes for a good listen to kick back and relax while having a beer or ten. It's moody, atmospheric, sometimes majestic and epic and sometimes just down-to-earth band-next-door, so there's enough variety to keep things interesting. Add some vocals right out of first-wave black metal with a hint of Hellhammer and Celtic Frost along with a clean, whisper-like style that gives even more of a mysterious atmosphere to the album and you've got your icing on the cake. Lightless Violent Chaos is a complex album that's an easy listen nonetheless. Very cool.
