The Canticle Of Shadows

Zarydya Des riffs absolument déments, une composition foudroyante et épique, un album maitrisé et tellement puissant...
Raemar thumbnail
Raemar Heavy, but not plodding. Rich in melody, intensity, with dense vocals, amassed in creativity without being ostentatious. Compositions are sprinkled with symphonic elements; sax, piano, organ, strings, chant & a rare bit of syncopation. (Maybe a twinge of psychotic disturbances were snuck in) Love the guitars in Congressus Cum Daemone!
Good, to say the least. You will not be bored with this. Favorite track: Congressus Cum Dæmone.

YomaBarr I'll wish it again to make you all pain, to make you all pain, to make you all pain! I know these are not exact lyrics but I guess I'll always hear it like this.

This album is very, very good in itself (and one of the most consistent ever) yet it's just a harbinger of what was to come with 2019 Spiritual Resonance. That's ritual BM like you never heard, putrid humans.
Kenstrosity thumbnail
Kenstrosity Darkend have a cool sound, deftly blending blackened fury with dark melodies and rounding out the package with a delicate application of symphonic grandeur. The Canticle of Shadows is arguably their best work, and for the price how could I ask for anything more? Favorite track: Of The Defunct.

whatisthis8175 This album is a goddamn treasure. Brutal, intense, with beautiful moments scattered throughout. Everything I'd want in a masterpiece.
