Genre: Progressive death metal

Okay, so this is death metal for sure, but it's not your old school dirty and primitive death metal. This is progressive death metal. Now, before you start thinking Atheist or Obscura or maybe artists from the more tech death metal side of things, I'm going to have to stop you. While there are definitely influences from Atheist and early Cynic on this album, that's still not the type of progressivity we're referring to here. It's more along the lines of pre-melodeath At The Gates - you know, weird shit.

Now, don't get me wrong. Weird shit is good.

This album is a tour de force in avant-garde and artistic death metal, reminding us that this genre can also appeal to the proverbial thinking man. The compositions are complex and justapose insane blastbeat sections with melancholic and, at times, almost psychedelic sections. Oscillating back and forth between introverted shoegazing sections and explosive aggression, the album takes the listener on a challenging musical journey through Cynic-like athmospheric sections over Deathspell Omega-ish dissonance to near-chaotic noise rock landscapes.

More of a challenging listen than a kick-ass album, "Lost on void's Horizon" is a clinic in death metal artistry and fans of progressive and avant-garde extreme metal should find it very appealing.
