Fading Away From The Grave Of Nothingness

Oathean - Fading Away From The Grave Of Nothingness - 2005 - The End Records
I won't say that Oathean are in that unique, but at least they have the good taste to not resort to the musical shorthand that most bands of this ilk fall back on. Of course, I'm again referring to the vocabulary that Dimmu and Cradle have already well established. In fact, this album sort of reminds me of three unheralded melodic black metal masterpieces, Midvinter's "At The Sight Of The Apocalypse Dragon", Sacrementum's "The Coming Of Chaos", and Sigh's "Infidel Art". What these albums have in common isn't stylistic similarities; it's their individualistic take on the basic melodic black metal template. If nothing else, this album is an entertaining foray into an almost forgotten strain of melodic/symphonic black metal.
