Sol Sistere

Rated 3.5/5 (70%) (6 Votes)

Third album from this Chilean band I had never heard of before, but who have produced an album I really like. Highly atmospheric and melodic Black Metal is what's going on here, very similar to other expansive bands like Windfaerer or Vallendusk. What I like about this album is it manages to marry propulsive Black Metal sounds with uplifting, haunting melodies for an overall effect that is aggressive without being grim. Some people may not dig that, and I am normally a big advocate for atonality as an essential component of Black Metal, but this is too well done for me to complain about it. This album catches your attention with a big, well-produced sound, and then keeps it with hooky melodies and good songwriting.
