Despite some melodic uniformity, with little to no variation, which gives the impression of a sound aiming to absorb and transform raw black metal into the most proficient and dreamlike state, Gazing Light Eternity dissolves and converts the most latent layers of beauty in Atmospheric Black Metal. With a musicality that transcends opacity, and gives to the listener the most powerful and lucid side of a transcendental genre that searches in the deepest emotions the inspiration for its magic, this album, filled with melodic nuances and impressions, that transcends sentimental boundaries and deconstruct virtual horizons, takes the genre into a free and expansive zone, like you never heard before. And this will certainly leave a profound impression into the most solitary delusions of your soul.
With four tracks, that divide the work in four parts – The Gazer, The Haze, The Crown and The Hourglass –, each and every aspect of these tracks spreads serenity, enthusiasm and gratitude towards a very serene, reflexive and philosophical kind of sound. Somehow, at a certain point, the work seems lost in an excessive path of desolation, but suddenly, a lacerating guitar corrodes the air, reminding you what kind of brutal music you are listening too.
Expounding very intrinsic characteristics of his art, Chiral, with this Gazing Light Eternity, buys a transcendental atlas for the sake of a cosmic harmony that strikes heaven with the winds of a giant pearl. Revealing the sensibility of a supreme art that rests in the fields of freezing ghostly forests, these philosophical lessons in sound will transport you to very isolated worlds of gloom and despair. Nonetheless, these are promising places, where all the shadows are skeptical of overcoming their own sincerities. A marvelous work that embraces the light and the shadow within your soul, Gazing Light Eternity, by Shiral, is an unbelievable album, that creates one billion suns below the surface of hope. You will feel yourself transported to a kinder, peaceful and gentle dimension, while listening to it.
