Album Review : - Blaze of Perdition - Conscious Darkness

The obsession with anything outre is not exactly a novelty in the metal scene, but occasionally it will assume a much more complex and nuanced dimension owing to musicians who insist on addressing such topics with utmost maturity and profundity. Numerous bands have created albums based around their own ideas that take insight from creative writing, but few bands will dedicate the entire span of an album to relevant interpretation of the belief With the emergence and escalation of the novel and notorious tendency. Blaze of Perdition are, and have always been, a cut above the rest. Spawning from the depths of Occultism, Philosophy, Chaos, Knowledge the newest record from orthodox black metallers Blaze of Perdition - Conscious Darkness. Poland has become a hotbed for quality black metal artists. Blaze of Perdition is simply supreme masters of the Polish extreme metal and return with another new studio effort on this year. This one even heavier and more aggressive than the previous one.Blaze of Perdition this Polish group married the ritualistic fury of esoteric,occult black metal with a creeping dose of mystical,ominous,sinister madness. The atmosphere and tightly plotted albums were based on mystical, occult, incantation while still employing their own take on black metal.

On this year Lublin based Polish black metallers Blaze of Perdition Unveiled their fourth full length opus on this year entitled “Conscious Darkness” via Agonia records with 43:03    min running time along with hellish,skin-ripping artistry. This new album consist with 4 tracks . Blaze of Perdition was formed in 2004. Now I am straight going to the point about this new album .
When at first checked out their manifestation I was overwhelmed and track sounds so authentic,ferocious,mature from then I was clinched that I have to check this whole material for sure and this would be savage beast. Blaze of Perdition delivers distinctly experimental, atmospherically evil,vivid,horrifying form of black metal.This bands each and every musician did fantastic job on this album in radiant way and It’s really great when your high hopes are not misplaced. This whole album reflects the grand diversity of sound brought together on this album . It is really not easy to describe their musical style . A natural synthesis of dissonant sounds and disparate styles all combined in one bold, enlightened display of unbound creativity Despite the often crushing,fast ,furious,cacophonous black metal assaults with a lots of segments of slower tempo too where Blaze of Perdition combines a atmospheric, mysterious, introspective passages with cavernous drum thrashes, melodic guitars and those effective rasps.

well,their latest incantations opening track is “A Glimpse of God” . This track starts with slow build and eerie chanting vocal but quickly the song returns to the sonic assailment and the musical style transformed into a whirlwind of guitar noise laced with aggression,deliberate cadence and progression seasonings supporting the likewise duo vocals drown a bit in the almost unhuman-like drumming, although this evolves to a more dynamic sound on the rest of the album. The music combines malevolent atmospheres with occult stylings to create a masterpiece of supreme black metal art and truly manages to mix trauma with fear, anger, embodying the most grim atmospheres that we could ever experience. Their whole composition and musical style is impeccable also borrow great atmosphere with sour ,dissonant riffs work .This new albums whole compositions are extremely filthy and unsettling piece of sinister,grim euphoria and unearthly ambiance . “Conscious Darkness” commences chronologically invigorating and destructive. Their distinct entity infused me by a lot . Their musical style have a quite soft and smooth edge which adds to the more atmospheric,unique kind of black metal but at the same time the vocals and other parts of the riffing is straight forward brutal,ferocious simultaneously . Honestly, after a multiple listen this album just blew me away with their ethereal abyss,multi-dimensional,the multi-layered,ominous musical style . Each musicians have exudes tremendous,cohesive effort on this album with excellent diligence and nailed it .Blaze of Perdition really does the trick for the atmosphere is the overall murky,mysterious, Juxtapositions of darkness and light, misty sound that comes from the music. I highly cite and embrace this album .

This album is filled with a slew of cadence, apocalyptic,pummeling, ominous,hellish, powerful riffs work . As well bass line up is whopping,intense,strong ,rumbling, slithering . Drumming,percussion line up is bleak, frantic,solid,clattering and powerful . The guitars are solely focused on creating a grandiose atmosphere, but predominantly rely on walls of sound and swerving rhythms.In each track morbidly delicious,macabre,soaring,dark eerie,ghastly riffs,bass lineups matched in well manner .This whole albums sound deliver a dissonant,grim feeling,sinister,melancholic,gruesome black metal with raw emotion and pure energy . “Conscious Darkness” endures beauty of black metal . This album indulge strong songwriting and brilliant musicianship . This album have a hypnotic effect on the listener . Vocals decently large voice that does well for Blaze of Perdition. Especially his menacing and hoarse voice are excellent . Vocals howling scream,immense,deep rasps ,serene chanting voice emerged on this album in a well manner adds a thick murky sound and intertwined perfectly with their utterly spellbinding,obtuse,bizarrely arrogant, mysterious,fully blistering black metal,distant musical style with a lots of melodic,atmospheric accompaniment and embedded perfectly . Their sound,musicianship is absolute prime, with every song unleashing a seething torrent of scalding dissonance and insidious melody, scorching distortion, and barbaric, blasphemous invective, all of which combine to produce an overarching atmosphere of creeping, crippling dread. Overall you will get sinister,gloomy,desolate,mysterious ambient from this whole album . This new opus is a layered and multifaceted slab of blackness, one that is rich in emotive material and affecting moments and emanates passion, suffocating darkness and death.I really worship this band.

Each song have an energy ,fluency and draw a savage landscape .Stand out tracks are all of them .Every song, every hellish, skin-stripping riff and vile vocal incantation, is delivered with the righteous fury and unwavering conviction of the true believer. I personally Cherish A Glimpse of God, Ashes Remain, Detachment Brings Serenity. Vision of the album cover is Pretty neat,solid,atrocious,grisly, macabre, gorgeously hideous. Overall “Conscious Darkness” whole album is Spectacular,engrossing ,significant and goes all the way through with a relentless rage from the beginning. Their music emanates passion, suffocating darkness and death. A band ahead of time, avant-garde for itself. “Conscious Darkness” is an immersive album, a very trippy fine art with a layered black metal that is wandering between harsh darkness to melancholic to a dense atmospheric fog. The sound has a depth to it, that with brief distortion. This album sounds so authentic and a truly remarkable sonic journey from beginning to end . Indeed this album is such an true gem of this year . The production is absolutely impeccable,capable of handling both the massive atmospheric and gargantuan heft.Outstanding another one release of this year so far .“Conscious Darkness” is shattering culmination in black metal evolution. The Polish bruisers still possess all the necessary skills and hard-won experience to put younger,newcomer challengers in their place.With "Conscious Darkness", Blaze of Perdition writes another chapter in their book of successive masterpieces. "Conscious Darkness" is the band’s most refined and comprehensive distillation of the blackened essence yet combining atmosphere, melody, harsh aggression and avant-garde sophistication of supreme blackened art. If you looking for something different, epic this album will take you on a sophisticated and weighty black metal journey into another universe where music has the power to transcend the spoken word.
