There's been a lot of blackened death craziness being served up lately in our beloved metal genre. Within the past two years especially, it seems like the style has been seeing a return to form of sorts, with the likes of Bölzer, Teitanblood, Diocletian and others dishing out albums that are pleasantly old school, yet with a delicious modern twist. Of all these bands, however, it is probably Belgium's Emptiness who stand as the most immersing and emotive of them all. Their 2014 album encapsulates this idea perhaps better than ever before, and is nothing short of excellent.

Rating: 9 I don't hear a lot of Metatron or Attila here. Vocals sound more like a really loud whisper of death or something. (if that makes any sense)

  I don't really register the vocals as a distinct sound on this one, though I can see what mz means if I actually listen to them. I mostly agree with Zaph though.

  Such a damn adventurous record. I guess back when I listened to it when it was release I was too focused on brutal and aggressive music to be able to fully grasp this. This is definitely a very fun and surprising record. Lot of fucking cool passages, rhythms, grooves and whatnot. Peerless music indeed.

Rating: 10 Fun? that is the last thing I call this record.

  Only pretentious losers call this scary and terrifying. Indeed a totally a FUN record this one, just listen to the groovy riffs on the fourth track when the heavy part comes, such sexy stuff.

Rating: 10 It's not scarry, but one of the best record to embody fraustation and emptiness. The most similar record in terms of mood would be lurker of chalice (mostly on the emptiness side of stuff)

  Frustration - yeah agree quite a bit, they are frustrated with all the generic and repetitive bands that they've come up with something so fresh and unique. But have never felt empty or anything when listening to this like the LoC record. If it was empty, I would never be playing the fuck out of this like I'm doing now. Dayum, I am never content when this record ends, I just HAVE to listen from the start again. It's so damn addictive!

It doesn't help that it ends in THAT way

The ending is indeed questionable. Not really annoying, just a bit pointless.


Everything is pointless in the end. There is only the emptiness of existence

Rating: 9 This album has changed how I listen to extreme metal. And that is one hell of a compliment to give an album.
