Lazarus Blackstar - Revelations
Top customer reviews
on 8 February 2007
Format: Audio CD
People often throw around phrases like 'this is one of the heaviest things ever' without really knowing the full extent of the gravity of such a statement. In terms of guitar tone, gravity features prominently in Lazarus Blackstar, as it's so heavy it will drag you through the floor into the pitch black abyss below. This band have a perfectly realised and absolutely massive sound, definitely one of the heaviest productions I have ever heard. Think huge sludge riffs with moments of groove, pummelling drums, simple bludgeoning song structures and a menacing wall of oppressive weight. Vocally, we're talking pure pain and suffering in the form of Paul Catten's distressing wails. Definitely a turn-off for some, but I'd encourage you to stick with it, because the more you listen the more you get inside the powerful emotion behind this album. There are moments on here that take you to the very limits of human endurance while the introspective, deeply reactive lyrics truly connect feeling and delivery. Singular in intent, crushing, harrowing, brutal. If you're brave enough to embrace the dark underbelly of humanity you should investigate, for while there is despair in abundance here, the cathartic nature of endurance at the heart of Revelations leads to retribution. This grower sets up its promises and not only delivers, but absolutely crushes while doing so.
