Twilight (Southern Lord)
By: Mike SOS
Combining the collective efforts from the best musicians that the American black metal scene has to offer, Twilight?s eponymous nine-track offering stays true to the spirit of the genre, yet somehow falls flat. Could it be that too many cooks spoil the broth? "As The March of Worms" and "Hopeless Etheride" both fend off sub par production value and delivers a solid slab of evil, but a lot of the project sounds a bit undernourished. These purveyors of pain cram as much demonic power as possible into a short space, suffocating the songs before they even get a chance to reap their full havoc. The exception to this is arguably the album?s best track, the closing "Beyond Light", a stunning eight-minute instrumental that salvages the entire collection.
