”Life = Pain”

Battle Helm Rating

It might not be too brutal or gory to admit that I have a soft spot for ambient black metal ever since I heard France Akhenaton back in 1995. There is something to the mix of the somber and the raw. How it goes from soft to hard, often within the same song. EMPTINESS SOUL has a cool mix of raw black metal tracks and beautiful instrumental interludes. There is an ambient aura to the black metal tracks that finds a home in my metal heart. As always I am not satisfied until I get more of it all (more ambient, more raw black metal mixed together) but this is still a good enough record for my taste. Anders Ekdahl
