From Scythe to Sceptre Thank you to the artists. Melodic death is only as interesting as the riffs make it. If you have any love for progressive metal and can handle the low, growled vocals, this is for you.

The guitar-centric sound helps to focus the attack and hold your attention.
The themes relating to philosophy, the universe, civilization and entropy truly resonated with me and supplemented the virtuoso pieces "I am the Abyss", "The Cosmic Tide" with even more depth. You've heard that riff in Aspect a hundred times before on the album, you've heard far better mellow bits before, you've heard that melodic, proggy-ish lead bit in a hundred other vaguely epic metal bands.
In the US anyway Not only did they deliver a stunning self released debut, The Frail Tide inwhich was universally acclaimed, they have followed it up with a tighter, better produced follow up. Folk inspired, beautiful metal.
Be’lakor – Stone’s Reach Review
You've heard that 'spiky' palm muted riff a million times, in this album and every other album of it's kind. While this could have constituted a hardly thirty seconds still useless, though interlude on most recordings, here the band extended it to five times this length.
Be'lakor present us in "Stone's Reach" with the epitome of progressive death metal. I am reminded of a mix of Opeth's more exciting, progressive death moments and the veneer of Dark Tranquillity when listening to this.
Be'lakor - Stone's Reach Review
In destruction she will create Arising reah glory, the searing gaze Crimson-handed specter of death Under the blood eye of furies Bury their feeble hearts 6. Write your own review. Purchase includes high-res album booklet, containing album art and lyrics.
I am frequently struck with the involuntary urge to bang my head as I listen to Stone's Reach. There are a few cases of the familiar and raech melodies, but these are vastly overshadowed by the overall quality of the release. From Scythe To Sceptre 3. Be'lakor is out to change this, and Stone's Reach, their sophomore album, is both immersive and entertaining.

If you like Be'lakor, you may also reeach. The lyrics and titles are introspective and interesting, and the band sounds like they've been at this for a decade minimum.
Unlike some recent albums in the genre the last Dark Tranquillity and Insomnium albums, to name a fewStone's Reach holds my interest and doesn't put me belakkor sleep. This is one of those rare perfect albums. The thing is, Stone's Reach stohes a thirst I didn't even know I had. Held in Hollows The production is fantastic, all vocals and instrumentation fit perfectly across all tracks, as a single deach hour work the album is a travel worth undertaking.
Held In Hollows Through tainted mass A scourge unseen Brought three winters forth And set between After these hundreds of years The embers and fate will collide Her rotten heart has burst And shattered through dead wood When they drank from the earth, the reacch was near Tracing paths that once ran alone and pure Suffused within, the blighted decay Now snapped into dust, their splinters fall But a tithe to the reacg, his frail grasps Clawed for the moon then came belskor When all hope fails in the last broken bough Her strength will be gone Churning ash and husks in the bitter winds Crack the earth and burn the sky A wry procession of hubris Where nothing remains But everything changes In an age of rapidly shifting metal genres, melodic death metal in its purest form is mostly a lost art.
This cd is a masterpiece precisely because of these features. Of Breath and Bone Vinyl Remaster. Outlive The Hand 4. In the years to come and I write this just a couple of weeks before their next release is scheduled to hit the marketI believe that it will be VERY difficult to top this effortby anyone out there in the progressive, melodic death scene.

Be'lakor, hailing from Melbourne Australia, have managed to negotiate that no-man's land and craft a solid, memorable and compelling belxkor of classic melodic death metal. Review originally published at http: Sean16July 4th, On top of the never-ending riff parade there are fantastic leads and flourishes to the guitar work. Their next effort doesn't even have to come close to still being excellent, and if we are lucky enough to be treated to similar fare, we are all in for a special treat in I think maybe the problem is that the songs don't really come across as through-composed, or whatever the term is; belamor flow is usually descent, but the linear song progressions often come across as more of a "fit riffs in a same tempo back to back" combined with a lot of repetition of certain themes; most of the songs don't really seem that well thought through and thoroughly composed, which for songs of this length are pretty much vital.
The disparate melodies weave together in a frequently maidenesque dance.
