Be'lakor is a five piece Melodic Death Metal band from Melbourne, Australia. "The Frail Tide" is the bands' debut album, and it seems like they've jumped out of the blocks quite nicely with this one.

Be'lakor describes their music as "…aggressive vocals underpinned by dark atmospheres inflections and resonant harmonies". This is a reasonably accurate description of the band. The atmospheres produced almost remind you of a Doom aura. There are piano/keyboards used, and they do make a nice undertone throughout the music. The band is party inspired by nature and this is noticeable at times through expressive keyboard playing. The vocals are also well done. They're usually deep, but also often roaring and strong, a little akin to those of Novembers Doom. Although some parts of this album will remind the listener of some of the Doom/Death bands out there, this is still Melodic Death Metal.

Listen to the first ten seconds of the album and you'll get hooked. Vocals could be better, but its made up for in the epic-ness of the instrumentation.

3 albums later this has still gotta be close to their greatest man-tear moment 4:01-5:40

One of the best albums your ears going to listen. Don't miss it or you'll regret. Following albums are not that good.

Very good stuff! I first listened to this about a couple years back. I really liked it!
