Aeons in Tectonic Interment

Rated 3.44/5 (68.89%) (9 Votes)

Well, I have been waiting ten damn years for Tyranny to release a new album, hoping it would be another Funeral Doom masterwork, and now we have this, which has all the ingredients, but does not put them together.

First I have to fault the flat, thin recording job. This was a band who crushed with oceanic heaviness on Tides of Awakening, but this time out the sound is thin, flat, and lacking in depth and space. The whole thing sounds tinny and never draws you into that encompassing deeps of sound like the last one did. The songwriting is similarly flattened, and never gets my attention. The first album worked by using chords and riffs that built tension and then paid it off with massive waves of heaviness. This album is just stilted and flat, with no emotional arc or involvement. I keep listening to this, wanting to like it, to find my way in, but it refuses to open out, because it has no depth this time. Listening to this and Tides side by side, it is like night and day. Disappointing.
