Abigail Williams - Becoming



What a turn around! Too bad this is thier last alb- wait no it's not. Still, great to see them ditch the always shortcoming style that they used to have and instead picked up a more accesible Wolves In The Throne Room-type black metal. The vocals here are great - kind of muted and in the background to make for an ethereal presence. The long songs here are great, especially the album closer "Beyond The Veil." I hope they keep to this style from now on - great things could happen for them!

Standout tracks: Beyond The Veil, Ascension Sickness, Radiance
