12 Winter Moons Comes The Witches Brew
Experimental black metal that is good at times and comes up short others
The beginning of the new album by Arkheth held some serious promise, with the dulcet sound of a saxophone and jazzy drumming kicking things off before sliding in to some well executed black metal. But as you move through the album, things get a little repetitive. While eschewing the verse-chorus format, the album follows a jazzy section heavy with saxophone followed by black metal passages. There are times where it feels like the tracks wander off the path into the void only to re-emerge later where they deviated. Fans of the experimentally weird black metal will find plenty to enjoy on this one.
