Poland's In Twilight's Embrace pull out all the stops on their fourth full-length album of melodic blackened death metal. With only 8 songs and lasting just over half an hour, Vanitas wastes no time delivering the killer melodies buried within the blackened grooves. Sometimes minimal is better as there are no flashy moments on this album, but they succeed in keeping the listener captivated for those 30+ minutes. Every song is a standout track, as they are all different but flow together seamlessly. This is a great new release from a band that have seem to finally found their direction. Highly recommended album!
