In Swathes Of Brooding Light marks the first album by England's black metal act Ebony Lake in a dozen years.

If I were forced to describe this album in three words, I would describe it thus:

Chaotic. Fucking. Mess.

There is a fine line between genius and insanity. Ebony Lake walks this line in much the same fashion as the guy on Cops who just blew a .254 into the breathalyzer does that field sobriety test. At some points the chaos synchs up into something awesome. At others times it synchs up to "make the bad people stop!" Think "Bungle-Sagoth."

Rating: 8 Not entirely sure how I missed this band seeing as it seems to be catered for my tastes. Like Axis of Perdition raping Elend.
