Pictures Of Pain
World Demise
Company: Pitch Black
Release: 2016
Genre: Heavy/Extreme
Reviewer: Vinaya Saksena
Published: 4/9/2016

Not a new Opeth, but definitely reaching for similar heights
COMMENTS:
If you lamented Opeth abandoning the brilliant progressive extreme metal of their early albums, you might want to give this a try. No, it ain't Blackwater Park, but these Norwegians definitely have a similar talent for combining melody, brutality and epic song structures. But they take a slightly different approach, with levels of technicality and almost operatic vocal prowess that Akerfeldt and co. never showed. But as expertly crafted as it is, World Demise never lets flash get in the way of songcraft. Again, not a new Opeth, but definitely reaching for similar heights. Only their second full-length, so hopefully even better things will come.
