18:39 - Marcel Hubregtse Those two were okay, but still incredibly generic. Like you I don't understand why they keep on going back to that sound from time to time.
18:37 - Apothecary I'd say the first two MV albums weren't all that bad, but it should've just stopped after that. And yes, I've been wondering why they continue to bother with that sound anymore as well
18:30 - Marcel Hubregtse Incredible that a band that can be totally out there when they want too (bordering on avantgarde) also records stuff which is incredibly generic (looking at all the MV albums)
18:28 - Apothecary "Both being very different on an Artistic plan." Well no shit lol, I probably won't even bother with another Memoria Vetusta album, but that other one sounds intriguing

In Swathes Of Brooding Light marks the first album by England's black metal act Ebony Lake in a dozen years.
If I were forced to describe this album in three words, I would describe it thus:
Chaotic. Fucking. Mess.
There is a fine line between genius and insanity. Ebony Lake walks this line in much the same fashion as the guy on Cops who just blew a .254 into the breathalyzer does that field sobriety test. At some points the chaos synchs up into something awesome. At others times it synchs up to "make the bad people stop!" Think "Bungle-Sagoth."
