Epoch of Unlight

Caught in the Unlight! (The End)
by Martin Popoff

Losing a guitarist and changing the bassist, Epoch Of Unlight is now a tight and taut three-piece, zipping along, perfecting and honing their unique sound which is increasingly melodic, less black and more thrash. Big underground producer Keith Falgout (Soilent Green, Crowbar) has toughened the drum sound, both snare and kick on the debut sounding eccentric and Mickey Mouse, here cutting through like a snot-nosed below-radar Dimmu while Jason Smith's guitar sound gets a little Dismember-ed, all in creation of a surgical power trio madness that is head-exploding, infectious and stabbing. Check out "Crimson and Steel" for daring rock'n'roll-ness at 200 mph. It's an interesting formula, comprising rich heavy metal riffs with death/black vocals and punky blastbeats, pushing the thing underground with integrity, but trudging through mud and quicksand to emerge in the enjoyment of (un)light, oddly reminding one of Edge of Sanity, At The Gates, and maybe The Haunted. All told, a cohesive, focused, relentless, methodical, measured avalanche of small rocks, pebbles, buckshot, broken glass, and ball bearings.
