It’s been awhile since I heard from this horde as I read they have recruited a new singer that simply goes by S and it’s a good change as this adds new character to the band.
Elemental Chaos opens this ritual and it’s a fantastic opener as the band comes back with a vengeance of pure energy and even with a spoken part this is has a very sinister feel to it as it has a lot to offer, and it continues on Spiral Moon as this track has a deep more straight forward feel to it and reading the lyrics to this one makes it even better, the atmospheric black metal is there but these guys take it to another level as this is more intense from what I hear and it grabs you no doubt, the ending riff is classic!
It really gets interesting on Descending Light as here we take another step beyond with a few tempo changes but still rips at you with these killer riffage going off in such a chaotic way and all these tracks are long so there is a lot to offer on each one like on The Faceless which is over eight minutes long but has such a catchy groove to it and probably the best track for me to this point.
But this gets better cause the remaining tracks on here have a life of their own all of them are strong and this band has its own brand to their music as it has a lot to offer to the listener as I can tell a lot of time must of been put into this and it shows here as the musicianship on here is top notch, the whole band sounds tight as can be.by the way the closer Juxtaposed Universe is as good as it can get and the lyrics took this one to the top for me something you will need to do if you get a copy as it adds more to the whole thing.
Sol Sistere is one of those bands that has the formula to explode across the planet if they were heard all over, this is a fantastic album that needs to be heard.
