Ephel Duath - Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness (2013 NN Promo)
"The first new album in five years and follow up to 2009’s Through My Dog’s Eyes; the new Ephel Duath release is finally upon us. This time Karyn Crisis of Crisis and the Karyn Crisis Band is on lead vocals, with guest appearances by Erik Rutan of Cannibal Corpse on guitar and backing vocals. Marco Minneman of Nekrophagist and Kreator is behind the kit this time, with Bryan Beller of Dethklok, Joe Satriani and The Aristocrats is on bass duties. Karyn Crisis has a very different approach than some of you might expect for the album; and I definitely have a tough time getting into it, but there’s no doubt that this album will certainly find fans of her sludge-like approach (which came off a bit nasally when she wasn’t performing harsh vocals, in which she excels.)
