Ecdysis Reviews

Reviewer :  level   (95/100)

This album is unbelievably good. Powerful nod-your-head riffs in Pavor Nocturnus, Monarch, and Heaven's Deceit, to the powerful epitome of a hard day's work done, Titan, clipping the album off with beautiful lyrics about the sweet release of deathly slumber. Ecdysis literally means the shedding of the skin of a snake, and this is exactly what geniuses Horrendous have done. Their previous studio album, The Chills, was a great piece of death metal with excellent song writing, but no consideration for dynamic range in the production creating a sound we have all heard before and our ears grow tired of. Ecdysis had a booming kick drum and soaring operatic backing vocals that could not achieve the emotional power that they do without the production space created by the 9 and 10db dynamic range this album clocks in at!

An absolute triumph in song writing, mixing, mastering and death metal. A booming grind, with energetic bursts of fire spitting throughout the meatier riffage, and some of the best lead guitar work I've heard in a while.

Not to mention the delicious The Vermillion, with layer upon layer of silky acoustic guitar...

Buy this album.

1집의 불길하고 공포스러운 느낌의 데스는 어딜가고... ㅠㅠ

첫 트랙 The Stranger 부터 다채로운 프로그레시브 팝으로 큰 충격 주더니 다음 트랙 Weeping Relic이 시작하자마자 경쾌한 데스앤롤 리프로 확인사살을 해준다. 모든 부분이 다 1번 (3분 9초부터 시작되는 1분여는 머릿속에서 지우고 싶은 순간)처럼 황당하지는 않지만 전작의 모든 장점은 다 사라져버렸다.
