Raw and beautiful. Symphonic metal is a well understood quantity, but this album remains special, it feels right. I wish the later albums kept the same feel.
Favorite track: The Hour is at Hand.
Violin, Cello and Drums metal trio Judgement Day's first full-length release is a cinematic journey through darkness that the East Bay Express calls "a technically impressive, highly amusing, and genuinely righteous shredfest."
This entire album is gold. Aphotic Blues strikes a vein of sonic gold, highlighting this band's skillset. Refined lyrics, thoughtful song structure, and expertly executed vocal harmonies. Can't get much better in my book. Mike Herrick
