United States based Excommunion formed in 1998 and they’re set to release their upcoming album on May 12th this year. This breaks a silence of many years, being the death metal band’s first album in fifteen years.
The album opens with the brutally thunderous ‘Twilight of Eschaton’, which offers the listener a blazing death metal inferno with its weighty guitars, solid drumming and guttural vocals. All of these elements combine to create a demonically pleasing soundscape. The rhythm and tempo changes throughout the song keeping things interesting.
Overall the music is good, and the vocals are great. The music’s pace switches around a lot which adds to the album. The texture and style of the guitar work is varied throughout which works well and adds some variety mostly based around death and black metal. The production is good, and all of the instrumentation has weight behind it adding to that heavy feel.
All of the songs are very long and brooding with build ups and releases which add a sense of epicness and drama to the sound.
Would recommend for fans of blackened death metal.
