Staff review by
Sometimes music can get your attention and set you up for a new experience but fail to proceed anywhere. The latest release from black metal outfit Sear Bliss has this effect, it is geared toward an experimental melodic black induced with brass instrumentation which unfortunately keeps shooting itself in the foot.

This album has its oddities; attempts to craft strange atmospheres such as the thickly jazzy and symphonic swerving of "The Eternal Chaos" or "Ballad of the Shipwrecked," which has appropriately added sounds of water in motion and the creaking of wooden planks. Yet, whatever interesting pieces they manage to compile and spread throughout the album are fitted to an ultimately bland melodic vein. Prone to a repetitiveness that draws heavily on the attention, it really requires an effort to continue through the duration of each track. With that said each track does have its own peculiar characteristics but not nearly enough to make them clearly distinguishable from that pervasive monotony.

This album starts off fantastically but loses a bit of it's momentum near the end, overall really good though
