Dissection – Storm of The Light’s Bane 2CD
15.00 € inc. VAT
Storm of the Light’s Bane came out during a year that was the heyday of death metal; a year marked by timeless masterpieces. Released alongside At the Gates’s Slaughter of the Soul, Dark Tranquillity’s The Gallery, Cryptopsy’s None So Vile, and Suffocation’s Pierced from Within, it was released during a noteworthy period of the genre. Each of the above mentioned albums have had a great deal of impact on technical death metal and melodic death metal, with SOTLB being at the top.
SOTLB is one of the rarest, perfect blends of blackened death metal, with a heavy dose of melody. The production on this album isn’t perfect, however, it bridges between the low-fi quality of black metal and the generally cleaner quality of melodic death, which is exactly what SOTLB is a perfect amalgamation of the two styles. The guitars are distant sounding and chillingly melodic inducing a sense of ethereal wonder. The drums are fierce and change accordingly with the traditional blastbeats and chaotic fills. Nödveidt’s vox are acceptional, an echoey screech reminscent of a demonic prophet. The lyrics are darkly poetic and are the perfect compliment to this album.
Essentially Dissection’s Storm of the Light’s Bane is, in any sense of the word, the perfect blackened death metal album. It is a benchmark in its genre and is worthy of being remembered if not for its impact but for the memory of its creator, Jon Nödveidt.
