There's been a lot of blackened death craziness being served up lately in our beloved metal genre. Within the past two years especially, it seems like the style has been seeing a return to form of sorts, with the likes of Bölzer, Teitanblood, Diocletian and others dishing out albums that are pleasantly old school, yet with a delicious modern twist. Of all these bands, however, it is probably Belgium's Emptiness who stand as the most immersing and emotive of them all. Their 2014 album encapsulates this idea perhaps better than ever before, and is nothing short of excellent.

Probably the most likely candidate for album of the year.

Interesting. It's a great album, but I think there are about ~10 albums that are better from this year. I'm sure you can guess what my aoty is so far

Is the only album this year I've heard that feels truly fresh to me. A lot of bands are cottoning on to the whole dissonant thing and it's getting a bit old and predictable, even if they are well done (TGOO for example: very good but about 2 years or so too late). This has the benefit of being something I can't compare anything else to, as well as being extremely enjoyable to listen to, and perhaps most importantly an album that sits at the back of my mind as something I don't fully get yet.

While there are other great albums this year, they tend to exemplify existing ideas, whereas this album feels like a subversion of ideas, almost as though a deconstruction of black and death metal. Being something without actually being something is one the highest accolades I can ascribe and not many bands pull it off (Lurker of Chalice, Murmuüre etc)

  I think Joe said something about Ævangelist's new album to be superior than this one. Why so flowerly at this moment?!

It was K7's twin brother saying that, so ignore

Btw I wonder if the upcoming Aevangelist has already leaked. Will be giving it a first spin later tonight.

If it has that's the first I've heard about it, so no idea what K7-2 is talking about.

Release is scheduled for somewhere during the seoncd half of September and promos have been sent around, but that's it as far as I know.

I think Alex Fenger put me on to the their 2012 album which was really good. Thing is I'm not 100% sure it was that album as the name and album cover is really generic but it sounds like it. It was a good album, just overshadowed by Aevangelist.

Rating: 9 Oh yeah, that one. Cynic should pay more attention.
