Belakor stones reach
The drumming is on-target and there is audible bass in there somewhere. The production is a bit on the compressed side, but hell, it's still stellar compared to the stuff that comes out these days. This in-the-studio video from Allegaeon provides an up-close view of their fleet-fingered death-metal wizardry. Everything about this album fits together in a complex order.

Repeated listens bear out new details and reveal the real quality here. Overall, though, that's the problem with this album; there's nothing that's terribly bad, but there's just nothing that holds your attention to it.
There are few if any flaws to this album. Any reacn brave enough to walk this path faces a minefield of mistakes made by their forefathers. Outlive The Hand In death she spoke of waiting Her final days were long These fields have changed since last she wept Before the silent throng She sits where childhood memories lie Above, beside, within them The carvings have outlived the hand Which bled to first begin them As features of the landscape merge The oldest trees are falling Awareness sweeps the view aside She stares as if recalling Seen first beyond the canopy They soon had reached the borders The clouds infused with burning breath Arrived from coldest corners The windswept belaokr hastens now As dying words are uttered From lips of earth and sapling's strain Like leaves, her last belakoe fluttered Again it darkens overhead The knowledge of it stills me And when the water starts to fall Preserve the drop that kills me 4.
Be'lakor - Stone's Reach - Reviews - Encyclopaedia Metallum: The Metal Archives
This is one of those rare perfect albums. Please read the disclaimer. There's nothing here I would describe as "rubbish", the band are great at their instruments, the production is chunky and more then adequate, the vocalist won't set your world on fire but he's decent enough, and has a knack for writing strange but evocative and somewhat interesting lyrics.

Be'lakor - Stone's Reach Review
Bands alphabetical country genre Labels alphabetical country Reviews R. In an age of rapidly shifting metal genres, melodic death metal in its purest form is mostly a lost art.
If you venerate the holy houses of Gothenburg, then you should seek out Stone's Reach with a quickness. There is plenty of rhythmic and melodic differentiation to stave off any sense of monotony.
There's also resorting to a lot of quasi-breakdowns for "dramatic" parts of the song, a bunch of false endings where it seems almost like two songs where tacked together Sun Delusionand a few extremely similar riffs that appears a few times throughout the whole thing.
Be'lakor bring the riffage. This is also one of those albums you want to listen straight through, it's quite a moody journey.
Be’lakor – Stone’s Reach Review
An assembly line of crushing doom, blistering death-rock, and misery-laden black-metal, powered by a one-man torture machine. They also bring a nice sense of dynamics and songwriting. Featuring the BC Weekly best new albums and artists from Held In Hollows 6.
And it is this ideal that the band enforce in full throughout the album. Guess I'm way out the loop when it comes to music but there are countless bands out there that I have yet to encounter or discover but my thirst in metal is exquisite and I am still discovering these new bands everyday belqkor quenches that thirst and Be'lakor has done just that.
A pity as the musicians, the guitarists especially, otherwise seem to show some indubitable qualities. See what I said about uselessly long songs?
A Beautiful Dystopia by Okera. From Scythe to Sceptre. The only other slight downside on the album is a couple of rough segues which are frustrating because aside from these tiny glitches, I hear next to zero flaws on an album that could well be the pinnacle of Venator As I skulked past the gates And drew behind the stones The winding trees enveloped The cloak around my bones Peering through the night's mist I crept through the fen To try and find the totem In the grey warg's den The freezing forest guards The secrets that he wrought His spirit lies on every twig His scent infests the haunt His howling cut the still air His cry up to the stars The piercing bay of his rage Tore the beat out of my heart To the entrance I stalked up in the shadows His breathing I could hear Rasping in the barrows Silently my dagger slid From its ice-cracked sheath His bloody maw emerging His jowls hung raw beneath Like those that lusted below me My mind was always snared The totem drew my senses The grey warg drew my fear His giblet eyes surveyed me His haggard haunch was raised Rearing up his splintered paw He struck me in a daze And with his jaws jarred open he tore me on the floor as lonely bones forgotten now I lay here evermore 2.
