Shattering Light's Creation

Rated 2.67/5 (53.33%) (6 Votes)

Aside from my personal belief that a band with a name like this should have songs about dinosaur witch doctors, this is much better than I expected. Black Metal from this part of the US is so often by-the-numbers Darkthrone worship when it is not simply aping Wolves in the Throne Room, so finding a disc that is neither of those things is quite refreshing. Tyrannosorceress play a rather epic style of Black Metal, similar to bands like Lunar Aurora or the more recent works from Temple of Baal. Long songs, a lot of melody, and a lot of depth and variety to the compositions. These songs are dynamic, with extended slow passages interspersed with blasting and speed. In places it goes on a bit long, and some of the compositions bag a bit, but overall I find this a really strong debut for fans of more melodic, epic Black Metal.
