Vibrant comeback 29 Jun. 2014
By IcemanJ - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Wow. Talk about a comeback. After being a bit disappointed with Lantlos’ last effort, “Agape,” this album has me blown away.

“.neon” was the album that really got me interested in this band – it had the perfect blend of heaviness and melody while mixing black metal with post rock (or whatever you want to call it). Agape disappointed me and seemed drawn out, too ambient, and lacking ideas. This seemed to be a popular complaint.

I really wasn’t expecting much when I popped this in. In fact, I was considering not even buying it. But from the first second, I knew this was going to be good. It’s like “.neon” on steroids, but also evolved into something completely different. While there is still that shred of a black metal past, this album has moved toward a very melodic progressive/shoegaze or post-metal sound, a little like Isis or Pelican at times, but not exactly. Dare I even say that this does remind me of the sleekness of some Deftones songs. There are lots of ambient breakdowns, or maybe more like buildups, but they never feel boring or uninspired – they are the necessary glue that holds these monstrous songs together. The black metal shrieks are only but a memory now, but honestly, I don’t miss them and I didn’t even notice they were completely gone at first.

I like this direction. I hope they continue with it and can’t wait to see what’s next.
is this doomgaze?! 19 Dec. 2014
By Joshua R Hicks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl
this is, for me, a strong contender for my personal album of the year. and that's saying a lot, considering the quality releases we've had in 2014; from wolves in the throne room's experimental "celestite" to the atlas moth's "old believer," it's been a pretty damn good year for music.

this is the kind of album that takes bits and pieces from many different genres and combines them into something otherworldly. as other reviewers have mentioned, it's got its own sound for sure, but you can absolutely hear the elements of post-rock, shoegaze, and metal...it's a positively electrifying amalgamation of styles, and for most bands, it might not work. but lantlos pulls it off with panache and their own sort of authenticity.

while it doesn't get quite as heavy as i would like, it's still a stellar album. in many ways, it reminds me of alcest's "shelter" in that it is noticeably more of a shoegaze/prog affair. not everyone will like this, and that's okay. but from the first seconds of the opening track, i knew i was going to love this one. i just had a really good feeling about it.
Jesu? 3 Jun. 2014
By Andrew Tatusko - Published on Amazon.com
It's enough to say that if you have any ear for Jesu and even some of the more methodical Deftones of late, then this is something you need to check out. Another way to put it is if you took a band like Isis and stripped out the gutteral bellowing for something smoother and more melodic - and not done by Chino Moreno.

This is an album not for "songs" but for the joissance of a patient ans deliberate soundscape. It unfolds in gradual and measured steps. All of it is connected like Ufomammut's "Eve" but with a much brighter outlook. This comes in perfect timing with the long vacation ride. Melting Sun will do what the title says it will. In the summer heat with the windows down, crank this album up and ride the wave.

Using a Great Formula with Mediocre Results... 23 Nov. 2014
By T. Dale - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Being that I'm always playing or listening to music, opportunities to hear new stuff always come my way. I found out about this band after reading comments left by someone on a video by a band I like. The comments described this album as heavy and atmospheric; a mixture of post-rock. metal and shoegaze.

The sound that these guy's created is great. Good guitar layering and sounds, a strong presence from the bass, and clear drums. The overall mix isn't too fuzzy like many shoegaze bands like to do, yet it still creates enough haze to build up the ambiance with a powerful sound. Think Devin Townsend style production. Actually, a lot of the guitar sounds, and the overall approach to the music on this album reminds me of Devin's stuff. That's a good thing. Unfortunately, the band doesn't do a great job utilizing their sound.

After listening to the album a few times, I only really care about the first two songs. But even these songs can be a challenge to listen to. First, certain sections of music repeat for way too long, without any real variation or building. This gets old quick. I think to myself "Okay, I got it. Can we move on now?". Plus many parts seem uninspired and don't really impress me from a creative aspect. They're rather bland, straight forward, and obvious. However, some musical parts are pretty good, they just kind of show up at random times to me. Transitions feel like a switch. It's off and then suddenly on, but you might have hit the wrong one. Overall, the writing on this album is average at best.

Finally, I like the singers voice. I just wish he'd sing more. Sometimes vocal tracks last only a minute or two in a 6 to 8 minute song. I might forget what I'm listening to, and think this is a post-rock instrumental band. He also seems to just show up and drop out at strange times. Many musical sections should include vocals, but they just give distorted chords with you wondering why nobody is singing.

I wish these guys could have done more with their badass sound, but it didn't happen. I guess that's my main reason I'm writing this review. It's just disappointing to me.

One last thought; the drummer sucks and intros on many songs are too long and rather boring...
