I couldn't wait for the 28.05.07 release date, so I purchased an Import copy from Amazon.

Personally, I have to say Close To A World Below is the pinnacle of Immolation's work for me. Harnessing Ruin was a very good effort but the brutality was considerably less than Close To A World Below.

So what to expect from Shadows In The Light?

It's somewhere between Harnessing Ruin & Close To A World Below. Not brutal as hell, but still very much death metal with awe inspiring technicality and musicianship!

As with other albums, it is the dramatic use of melodic yet aggressive riffs that make Shadows In The Light a great listen. Initially, I was a little disappointed, as I wanted total crushing brutality. The common link with Harnessing Ruin, I feel, is that after several listens I couldn't dislodge the riffs from running around and around in my mind. To the point where I was humming them repeatedly whilst walking around! LOL

Technically the guitaring is awesome, emotionally I feel massively animated by the riffs. Unfortunately I understand death metal intuitively rather than technically so I cannot do full justice here.

In places this album is very dark and menacing...Tarnished, Lying With Demons, World Agony & The Weight Of Devotion all encapsulate this dark, menacing, foreboding atmosphere.

Drumming is like every other album, superb, encompassing short blastbeat barrages but also incorporating a number of sporadic off kilter patterns.

Vocals are guttural but highly discernible, every word can be heard but Vokills are savage nonetheless!

I heard an advanced copy of this album and wasn't impressed. Now I realise that was due to production values on it.

Immolation are the kind of band that you either love or hate and I absolutely love them!! "Shadows In The Light" is probably Immolation's lightest album in their back catalogue but it is still heavier than most other Death Metal bands albums. The production is not as hefty as previous albums but Immolation continue to deliver intense, dark and heavy Death Metal album after album. This is one band who never deviated from their musical blue print and have over twenty four years of recording albums delivered Brutal Death Metal that has remained fresh, relevant and awe inspiring! In my humble opinion if you have bought one Immolation album then chances are that you will buy everything that have ever released! If you love Brutal Death Metal that has amazing atmosphere and power then Immolation deserve to be in your collection!! Do yourself a favour and buy all their releases!!!
