“Odes To No Hereafter”
Battle Helm Rating
Swedish melodic black metal in the vein of Dissection’s “Storm of the Light’s Bane”. Has X-ams come early this year? I remember hearing that album for the first time back in the 90s. That was like a revelation of never seen proportions. I don’t expect this to blow me away in that way but I do expect to be entertained in a appropriate way. Sure, there is that Dissection feel to this but there is also a Dimmu Borgir vibe to it. As I am more of a Dissection fan than Dimmu Borgir it is that side that interest me the most. It is hard to follow in the footsteps of Dissection but CWEALM do their damnedest to carry on the torch of the melodic black metal sound.
