With stringent guitar lines, that perfectly converges with very uplifting, but dark vocals, impressionable by the precisely acute timbres of the voice, this is a strong album, that rescues perfectly all the elements of traditional Black Metal. With an intriguing vigor, being abundant on strength, loftiness, lyricism, rhythm and elegance, if you are an ardent enthusiast of the genre, it is impossible not to be mesmerized by this fantastic album.
Although absolutely everything in Insanity Cult is amazing, their strength really resides in strong and majestic guitar lines. Combined with the perfect gloomy vocals, the sensibility exhilarated by their efforts really evaluates a marvelous impersonation of a colossal and brave type of Black Metal. Nevertheless, all different musical components converge so well together that their synchronicity, in order to execute what seems to be the definition of a very peculiar form of sonorous art, in the name of solid harmonies that captures an exceedingly artistic feeling, beautifully translated into poetry, will certainly leave you stunned, astounded and captivated, to say the least.
Nevertheless, I didn’t felt the album to be consistent or cohesive, but a little disparate, with the first half being better than the second one. They seem sometimes to be quite repetitive, with some tracks appearing to be very similar to one another, especially in the more slow parts of some songs. But, leaving this fact aside, Insanity Cult manages to do a very decent and pleasant work, extremely grounded on the traditional stream of Black Metal. As My End Unfolds… certainly can be considered an ambitious and correctly done experience on the genre. Having absorbed all the correct influences, they managed to build their own sonorous identity, doesn’t sounding like other Black Metal bands. And yet, they are immediately recognized as such, being charged with all the darkness, the ferocity and the electricity of the genre.
Somehow, I felt this album could be better, since it has more slow parts than fast ones, and you eventually get a little tired and bored in the middle of the album. Nevertheless, it is quite an intriguing work, with its fair share of qualities, authenticity and technique. But definitely more appealing to traditional fans of Black Metal.
