Sulphur Aeon - Swallowed By The Ocean LP (Black vinyl)
I've always been looking for metal bands that could give new meaning to the style, escape the cliches, and provide an innovator sound. Swallowed By The Ocean’s Tide maybe cannot match all the previous items, but it is an album that draws attention for not using the death/black metal old formulas. It is indeed a dark album, fast and heavy, but at the same time presents a musical theme that is beyond the common place of death metal: chaotic blast beats, lyrics about blood, death, destruction, apocalypse, fast but non-creative guitars and powerful but unpleasant vocals. The large balcony of Sulphur Aeons’ debut album was to rewrite all this in a different way, with an unusual theme, almost building a conceptual album about the saga of the creature C'thulhu.
