ARISTARCHOS - Aristarchos LP
The debut album from Scottish band Aristarchos is a 40-minute journey into the realms of the avant-garde and the atmospheric.
The combination of engaging riffs and cold otherworldly atmosphere that is presented here is exemplary. There are grim melodic highlights aplenty, while the keyboard elements swamp the music in layers of dread and malignant auras. The daemonic screams and shadowy exaltations urge the listener to leave it all behind, to stare into the void and jump headfirst into its dark embrace.
If you’re a fan of bands like Nightbringer and Akhlys then I heartily recommend that you check out Aristarchos. (Wonderbox Metal)
