Staff review by
Jason W.

Helevorn's Forthcoming Displeasures has left me with a permanent expression of delicate horror, as if I am reaching for the last, receding glimpses of pure air left to breathe on our forgotten planet. There is a thick, personal focus here, and a balance of inner struggle and angering frustrations with a silent vision of the haunting sadness that has seemingly engulfed everyone else's eyes. Helevorn has offered an album for those who knowingly or unknowingly mourn for humanity and for each other, perhaps even wanting to change it all, but feel hope becoming ever more distant as they live trapped in passivity.

31.10.2010 Rarely does an album make me feel nostalgic for the human race at the same time that I forsake all hope in it. Solidly crafted and produced, complete with thoughtful and personal lyrics and melodies, Helevorn offer us a somber experience into the withering of us all.

  I didn't like it at first, but now I find it interesting...REALLY interesting. "Descent" is a superb track, it must be said.
