Light Bearer: Lapsus review
Lapsus is an album of perfection, spiked with melody and morbidity, the album was a cover of a mere apocalypse light bearer has laid upon us. The album begins with Beyond the Infinite, a melodic introduction that you could say was "made to produce intense atmosphere..." that it did, friends. Literally, as it begins, atmosphere is droned around you like a creeping willow pulling you from a stretched abyss, with it's branches gently lifting you to a blackened exile, to as where you hear nothing but this... atmosphere. As it kicks in, the song sounds if it was a symphony conducted by satan himself, shall we say "Satans Symphony". The way I see it, it is a practical fight among the heavens and the scorching lake of fire, hell. We then hit the end of this introduction, to hear a strange voice in your ears, only to find after that the song Primium Movements, a thirteen minute mixture of emotions, with vocals so powerful and angry, rhythm showered with sorrow and despair, yet with a hint of joy.
Metal in Ruins rates this album a 10 stars out of a possible 10 stars (first 10!)
