Rated 4/5 (80%) (6 Votes)

This is the second album from Colombian band Condor, who are touted as Doom/Death, and probably qualify, but they are coming at their music from a different place than most of the My Dying Bride worshipers in that camp. Rather than originating their music in Doom, they are much more about traditional/epic metal, with a rolling, crunching riff-style that reminds me of stuff like old Battleroar or Cirith Ungol. The riffs here are pretty good, with a lot of crunch to them that shines through the primitive recording job. The vocals remain a guttural croak that does not really add to the music much, but it gets the job done. I enjoy the murky, arcane sound of this. It's not groundbreaking or anything, but it is fun and I found myself really digging the retro vibe.
