The Realm Of Ancient Stones contains some of the heaviest riffs that this reviewer has ever heard, it chugs along, bringing power and grit to the fore, and ensuring that the listener is hooked from the get go. Children is a haunting, slow moving drudge, that brings about big anthemic lyrics, and some fascinating grooves. Like A Bloodred Rose moves, and shifts, producing melodies galore, and ensuring that the listener is hooked once more.
Execution Of the Narcissist is an interesting flittering between screech and harmonious interlude, changing between the two effortlessly. Eclipse of Tomorrow shifts between heavy metal and acoustic finesse with great ease and ensures that the listener is kept firmly alert throughout. Healed By The Dark is a fitting closer, with harmonies, and pounding grooving riffs.
The album is out on 26th October via Inverse Records.
