Combines a melodic angularity learned from a hybrid of Merciless and Demigod, following aesthetic trends from many of the new aged Blasphemy/Beherit spawn from the last few years. Apt compositionally, but suffers from a lack of textural and macrostructural variety throughout the album, though this failing is less true with this album than with many its contemporaries. One of the most promising releases in this style.

Lantern's "Below" is getting a lot of promotion, but this seems more "progressive" 80s speed metal than death metal.

The Vorum album is like a death metal version of the first Watain.

It's pop candy-metal, but still a good listen, with a combination of haunting darkness in its melodic lines and energetic destruction from its rhythm section.  I'd choose it over a million 3-chord "war metal" bands any day.

Lantern... eh, I really can't do that album at all.  Boring-ass doom metal colliding into speed-metal, with the most off-putting vocals in the history of the genre.
