This CD is haunted! - 90%

Anaktas, September 26th, 2007

To begin this review, I would like to point out that this release is very complex. The first time you'll get to listen to it, you will hear nothing but noise. The second time it will seem that it gets even noisier, and when third time comes, then the true value of this cd will revealed.

Sun of Nothing (SON henceforth) managed to mix sludge, psychedelic, black metal, death metal and hardcore in a nightmarish cd which will keep you on the edge of your seat, sweating in fear.

Sometimes noisy, sometimes groovy, sometimes fast, but always extremely claustrophobic and utterly pessimistic, SON give us a perspective of life in darkness. The shrieking vocals and the strangely distorted guitar support this impression, assisted by a rather annoying production, which, strangely enough, seems to be the ideal one for such a dark music. The drumwork is excellent, and the bass lines have quite an independent character, compared to the guitar ones.

To sum up, SON undertook a difficult experiment, the genre mixture, that is. Did it work?
Of course it did! No heavy metal fan who seeks pure darkness and suicidal pessimism (without the easy solution of keyboards) will be disappointed.

Enjoy, and god be with you. Because in a small cd, beats the very heart of the metal future.
