18:39 - Marcel Hubregtse Those two were okay, but still incredibly generic. Like you I don't understand why they keep on going back to that sound from time to time.
18:37 - Apothecary I'd say the first two MV albums weren't all that bad, but it should've just stopped after that. And yes, I've been wondering why they continue to bother with that sound anymore as well
18:30 - Marcel Hubregtse Incredible that a band that can be totally out there when they want too (bordering on avantgarde) also records stuff which is incredibly generic (looking at all the MV albums)
18:28 - Apothecary "Both being very different on an Artistic plan." Well no shit lol, I probably won't even bother with another Memoria Vetusta album, but that other one sounds intriguing
Be'lakor is a five piece Melodic Death Metal band from Melbourne, Australia. "The Frail Tide" is the bands' debut album, and it seems like they've jumped out of the blocks quite nicely with this one.
Be'lakor describes their music as "…aggressive vocals underpinned by dark atmospheres inflections and resonant harmonies". This is a reasonably accurate description of the band. The atmospheres produced almost remind you of a Doom aura. There are piano/keyboards used, and they do make a nice undertone throughout the music. The band is party inspired by nature and this is noticeable at times through expressive keyboard playing. The vocals are also well done. They're usually deep, but also often roaring and strong, a little akin to those of Novembers Doom. Although some parts of this album will remind the listener of some of the Doom/Death bands out there, this is still Melodic Death Metal.
