When I listened to this album for the first time my first thought was "this is clearly melodic death, but there's something about it", something that marks the line between another copy and a new way of design from the same prototype. Despite the guitars following Gothenburg death metal, one innovation of this band is the demarcation of that style because there's no chorus/verse imposed law, there's no fear of falling into doom or entering solos at low speed. It's very important to be creative inside the musical genres and this Australian group achieve it in a brilliant way.

After hearing and reviewing the first offering of Melodic Death Metal from Australia's Be'lakor I found it to be a rather promising debut. The promise wasn't misplaced either as the band have backed themselves up rather nicely with this new album entitled Stone's Reach. While their previous release The Frail Tide was good, the new album is cleaner production-wise and I think a deeper piece of work as well.

Australia is surprising me with all these amazing bands i keep discovering. austere, woods of desolation, be'lakor. and of course ac/dc


AC/DC? Never heard of them. They must be new.

Yeah, relatively new compared to some other bands still kicking around i.e. The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd.

Rating: 10 Giving this a 10, this is probably the only worthy Melodeath album of the decade.

Rating: 10 This is truly a masterpiece. Been listening to this album for 2-3 years. "Countless Skies" is the most memorable track of this album. Their latest album was a gem release too.
