All My Sins - "Lunar/Solar" (Black Death Productions, 2017)
Genre: Black Metal
Year: 15th January 2017
Time: 21 min
By listening again and again to the rawest black metal bands from Portugal, I was almost forgetting that black metal is also able to deliver pure poetry! The poetic force of this genre is strongly shown today by All My Sins, a Serbian duo born in 2000 that, after two demos between 2002 and 2004, literally disappeared from the scene until their comeback with "Lunar/Solar", an EP released at the end of this year by the Polish label Black Death Production. And already now I say to you that "Lunar/Solar" is became one of my favorite discs of 2017!
The EP starts with "Jeka Prve Kiše , and we are already in a world of poetry. In brief, this is an intro for keyboards and acoustic guitar that draws nocturnal scenarios. After that, here you are "Pod Mesecom Prastari Hrast" where All My Sins express, throughout this song, a blasting black metal full of majestic melodies, emphasized by the classic screams in Abbath-style of Nav Cosmos. But, then, there is the song that I consider one of the best black metal numbers written during these last 10 years: "Pomen Usnulom Suncu".
Finally, there is "Zbogom", an evocative acoustic outro with a short whispering vocal part and some keyboards on its last seconds in order to end amazingly this EP.
