A Beacon In The Husk

Camel Avant-garde music that is highly inaccessible, A Beacon in the Husk combines elements of DM, doom metal, ambience, and atmosphere to create a truly uncomfortable and contemplative album. Think of this more as dark ambience with extreme music rather than one or the other. The production is superb, specifically the use of panning. The drumming in particular is some of the best I've ever heard. This auditory experience is not easy to appreciate, but my is it superb. Favorite track: II – Discernment: The Triumph Of Fools.

bcb723 Straight up suffocating doom mastery. You get the sense that this album was carefully thought out over the entirety of their four year absence. Honestly though, the way the drums enter two and a half minutes into track two? Badass insanity. What makes these songs so intense are the almost ambient passages weaved throughout that heighten the cacophony. This shit just does not let up from beginning to end. Just blackhole dark, end of times shit. Think I need to get that album artwork shirt also... Favorite track: III – Descent: We Who Beheld The Fall Of Axioms.

David Fischer A Beacon In The Husk is dark and oppressing unlike anything I have heard before. This combines elements of cavernous Death Metal, pummeling Black Metal and an unsettling yet enticing, engulfing ambience. It's immensely immersive and inherently intriguing. Like staring down into Hell. An absolutely stunning record. Favorite track: III – Descent: A Beacon In The Husk.

Otherworldly mysterious UK dark ambient death metal entity ABYSSAL have completed work on their fourth opus “A Beacon In The Husk”. Standing as the most colossal and ambitious ABYSSAL offering yet, “A Beacon In The Husk” stretches the ABYSSAL sound into even darker, more abstract, noiser, and progressive realms than anything within the ABYSSAL oeuvre. Four years following the acclaimed “Antikatastaseis” observation, an album in which saw ABYSSAL take a slightly more structured approach to the enveloping death metal horror and one that brought awareness to ABYSSAL as one of the most prominent death metal artists emerging from the UK, “A Beacon In The Husk” brings the audial terror to a whole new suffocating and overbearing complex level, even at times making it the most outlier ABYSSAL album to date.
