Album Review

Reviewed 2008-10-13
Amazing mix of epic black metal, apocalyptic hardcore and even a few hints a prog. This Oakland band’s vocalist/bassist (Kelly) and one of their guitarists (Steve) used to play the metal/hardcore band Lesser of Two. Kelly’s vocals are really deep and brutal but seem to work with every song. Embers use keyboards and viola to highlight certain moods/movements instead of making it obvious and cheesy. If you mixed Neurosis, Ludicra, Kylesa and Remains of The Day you’d come up with something like this. A great album all around and even better live.

((((((1)))))) Drone & feedback, slow keyboards & doomy riffs. Then a big-ass sound with every element balanced perfectly!
((((2)))) Interlude with twangy guitars, nice moody keyboards.
(((((((3))))))) Slow, spacious intro then rages ahead with a very focused & bombast. Gets fast and vicious at 2:55-3:21 then back to the epic stuff with tons of rad drumming & grim vox.
(((((4)))))) Heavy low end with proggy riffs & keyboard fills. Vicious vocals and again a really full sound. They really know how to create a mood & shift tempos naturally.
(((((((5))))))) Hammering, riffy/bassy and totally pummeling but well orchestrated sound filled out well with keyboards and viola. Catchy AND crushing!
((((((6)))))) Expansive, dramatic, great drum/viola/keyboard work, kinda doomy, then gets more bangin’ at 3:27.
