LAUTREAMONT “Silence Of The Deceased”

“Silence Of The Deceased”
(Hymns of Apocalypse)

Battle Helm Rating

This Russian avant garde metal troupe debuts with a seven track opus that “pay homage to the poems of Russian and European poets which we praise and get inspiration from”. An ambitious endeavor one might think. And given the fact that they sing in their native tongue to give the words the weight they deserve this is one intellectually heavy album. As if that wasn’t enough this is also musically heavy. At first this might seem a bit odd but as you listen to it you start to realize that it isn’t that weird. In fact it is very easy listenable. Sure, it does meander in all different directions but it is not the chaos it might have seemed like to begin with. A really cool album. Anders Ekdahl
