Pantheist - Pantheist

by Daryl Adolph at 25 April 2011, 2:03 AM

The UK have given us some incredible metallic talent over the years, including the grandfathers of Metal (Judas Priest and Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden to name a few) and even some of my newer favourites as well (like GraVil) as well. I grew up on the NEW WAVE OF BRITISH HEAVY Metal movement and that was where my love of this music began, so I love all things British metal. Now the Brits have given us a doom metal tour-DE-force called   Pantheist  .

Dark and foreboding with a very dank atmosphere made in every note they make, Pantheist rumbles like a sauntering Brontosaurus that can crush anything living in front of them. Funeral or even Progressive Doom is an acquired taste, I admit… but when it is this good, metalheads seem to gravitate to it regardless. With some of the heaviest yet memorable riffs and the most bleak and haunting lyrics I have came across since Novembers Doom – this band shows just how dark metal can get.

Each song seems to blend into one another seamlessly, creating this pained melancholy that is a vortex into someones tortured mind. No one song is better than the other – making this album that is not a concept album, seem like it as it blends all of this into a tapestry of sorrow and doom haunted retrospective into a persons tortured thinking. It is powerful and scary to behold the stark beauty and painful repercussions of a mind that it troubled.

I found that Pantheist to be a band that is truly full of talent, a wall of power and also having that understanding of the complexity of human emotion unlike anyone I have listened to. I am now going to hunt down the other album of this band right now… I need to hear more from this band. Seriously this is one of my favourite albums at the moment.
