Conceptual Horizon

Rated 3/5 (60%) (2 Votes)

Ever wonder what it would sound like if Moby joined Pink Floyd and they started playing Black Metal? Me neither, yet that is what it sounds like Iranian one-man band Ekove Efrits put into the blender for their/his third full-length Conceptual Horizon. Standard Black rasps and tremolo guitars are mixed with clean spoken/sung vocals, pensive, simple pianos and crazy keyboard effects right out of Wish You Were Here and The Wall. I can't say it is poorly played, because that would be untrue, but nothing seems to gel. The different parts sound like they weren't necessarily meant to go together but were asked nicely if they would. Conceptual Horizon is a weird, moody album that is pushing at the boundaries of what we think of as Heavy Metal. This is not going to be for many, save the truly adventurous and fans of slow, dirge-like experimental Black Metal.
