…And All Will Be Ashes sometimes shifts and evolves into a plastic, but exceedingly evolutionary and melodic form of blackened death metal, being a solid and vigorous album, with slow harmonies, and beautifully poetic, subtle and melancholic guitar solos. Being almost artistic black metal, the softness and the delicacy of the sound vividly contrasts with the usual rudeness of the genre. Bur Dantalion, like I wrote above, have developed its own style, and apparently on a very mature and concrete basis, upon which their musicality intensely reverberates, throughout the intimacy of a distant, but proficient galaxy, where all souls collide at the interior of a light that never fades away.
Their creativity is amazing, and what I definitely liked the most is their ability to explore and expand rhythms into the crystal beauty of slow and soft harmonies. Never tedious, but enthusiastically melodic, without being shallow, the strength of guitar lines in the album are close to arbitrarily insane and captivating, as they extend the boundaries of an afflictive sense of ingenuity, that apparently seems to reveal the essence and the spirit of a purpose that constantly inserts into the music the life that threatens to escape the devices of human condition.
With an amazing energy of their own, Dantalion manages to be exceedingly technical, without being automatic, and amazingly melodic, without being fragile. In the clear vicissitude of the development of a personal style, this incredible band managed to extend and highlight new paths to explore in the genre, doing a seminal work in the history of metal.
