Great recording. The more I listen to it, the more I like it. I dig the longer 10 minute songs cuz it really allows for a musical journey and story to be told. The songs have a wide range of emotions from scary to dreamscape. Great musicianship and recording quality. Killer bass sound in the mix. Nice work. I feel the cold Vermont chill in the tunes.
Favorite track: The Silent Circle.
Monstrous, heavy, haunted. Beautiful when it needs to be. These guys have an incredible sense of timing with their riffs and patterns. I also LOVE the vocals. I haven't been able to stop listening to this!
Favorite track: Blood Aurora.
'Old Smoke' is clear evidence that BARISHI's dark and melodic sound has evolved from 2016's Blood From a Lion's Mouth. This full-length from the Vermont metal collective is a sprawling cacophony of earth-shattering grooves and ferocious elegance, redefining contemporary progressive metal.
