Lycus, (Tempest), [20 Buck Spin], CD

Lycus-TempestLycus is a 4 piece out of Oakland (with a few other musicians providing violin and additional guitar and electronics on tracks I and III). This album was recorded between November of 2012 and January of 2013 in Oakland at Earhammer Studios and consists of 3 epic tracks. Combining all the best elements of dark, dirge, doom metal with odd key changes and furious black metal transitions. The music of Lycus would best be described as threnodic. Vocals range from a deep growl to dark melodic chanting. Akin to Asunder, Graves at Sea and Sweden’s Katatonia but this project seems more more refined and deliberate. No stone of lamentation goes unturned. A very exceptional release.
