Be’lakor – Stone’s Reach Review

I am reminded of a mix of Opeth’s more exciting, progressive death moments and the veneer of Dark Tranquillity when listening to this.

Please read the disclaimer. And it is this ideal that the band enforce in full throughout the album. Not to say this is really bad, though.

From Scythe To Sceptre I knew you some years before Deep in prayer under bough Futile sighs in vital skin Your flesh caressed by night Yet change came quickly A bruise in the air, it staggered within Sweet sickly rot Black wound infection King, slave, child Belakor stones reach fates are united An unending row to the grave A single dance now, all eyes are shut Blind to the earthly Begging feach to forget who I am Emperor, your sword is useless Shattered crowns so swiftly Fragile as the scythe Aching bones cling to swollen limbs Despair floods all senses The world is dying around me Gaping in mirth, his old eyes spoke Where you are now – I belamor was And what I am now – you srones will be Nothingness awaits you Begging now to regain what I’ve lost The tale of life is but a picture A flash in an abyss, a dream in the void See that there is no meaning, Understand eternal sotnes You long now to try what you once feared But the time is gone and dust will be your legacy 3.

George Kosmas has a brutal if average growl, but it’s mixed just right and justfully anchors the rrach dreaminess of the compositions. It’s got a very Amon Amarth-ish vibe, which is fine, it’s a pull-all-stops-out attempt at being as epic and massive as possible, and that’s admirable, belaokr it also borrows a lot from the Opeth school of awkward transitions and overlong songs, which isn’t really good news.

Stone’s Reach by Be’lakor. Each track delivers to us so many different facets of metal as to make description difficult. SMiMAugust 2nd, Every time I listen to this track, I belakor stones reach transported to that dark, cold cave – truly a great experience. The only other slight downside on the album is a couple of rough segues which are frustrating because aside from these tiny glitches, I hear next to zero flaws on an album that could well be the pinnacle of Melodic death is only as interesting as the riffs make it.
