This is Abigail Williams’ third full length album. Maybe a bit less technical than their previous efforts, but with much more emotion & atmosphere built in. The vocals in each song seem to just be another instrument. They don’t stand out, but they add to the feeling of each song. They’re a subtle addition that’s so important to the end result. The music is melodic, raw, aggressive & thoughtful.
The song “Infinite Fields of Mind” stood out quite a bit, it fed my old school black metal tastes as well as kept me in modern times.
This album has only 6 tracks but is nearly 70 minutes long. No moment is wasted, I assure you. This makes for a truly epic sounding album that I think will appease many different types of metal listeners. But this is definitely a great, black metal album.
The album Is available January 24th through Candlelight Records.
