March To An Inviolable Death - Lars Bjørn - 5 stars

March To An Inviolable Death

March To An Inviolable Death
(De Tenebrarum Principio - 2011)

This album comes to follow up on the 2 previous small demos that were released from Sacrarium, and the debut from the Frenchmen came already in 2009, but is now re-released on the record label De Tenebrarum Principio.
It goes under the same path as many other dark metal albums with massive growling, have strong speedy guitars with lots of aggression. But several of the songs have the same line of guitar sound like they were short of ideas in the creative department, that is a shame because there are some good constructive work especially in the songs Heartless Visions, Through Centuries and In A Circle Of Dead Seraphs. It's not just endless guitar torture, but great ability to contain shifting themes that are melodic and very dark at the same time. Unfortunately the opening act A.R.C.H. is just a narrative speech and seems to be misplaced here, and the ending song, Outro, is completely different, very anonymous and weak, quite frankly I don't understand why they put this kind of music on a dark metal album. It's keyboard and guitar sound without any substance at all. And when the album is only 9 songs all together, these two first and last songs gives a negative impression.
The other stuff could give a hope for more, I see them as an upcoming and talented band, just lacks the ability to weed out material that is not relevant. Lets see what comes from them in the future, the skills is definitely there.

5 stars
