Latitudes - Old Sunlight
Influenced by such varied Artists as NEUROSIS, RUSH, KING CRIMSON, BLUT AUS NORD, IMMOLATION, CONVERGE or MASTODON, the incredible UK-based band LATITUDES proudly deliver, with "Old Sunlight", their deepest, most expansive and forward-thinking work to date. Looking inward for inspiration, these talented musicians present a powerfully unique record: riff-heavy and devastating, restless and condensed, melodic and atmospheric, imbued with unrelenting forward motion.
"Old Sunlight" is an exciting, fascinating and relentless piece of semi- instrumental Cinematic Metal in its more noble expression, cleverly technical and complex without being over-worked - a captivating structure of monstrously heavy riffs and haunting mellifluous vocals surrounded by an impressive maze of curving and twisting melodies.
LATITUDES, with this fantastic third album, have created a sterling work of genre-spanning contemporary Metal. Anyone who enjoys pure musicality and progressive musicianship in tandem with the atmospheric and filmic aspects of instrumental metal should give this careful listening !
