It is hard to conquer something that does not exist

June 07, 2020
Into Coffin - Unconquered Abysses

The vague echoes of invisible ghosts interweave into the Antediluvian Flames introduction, anticipating a wave of severe darkness accelerating its drive with the introduction of a muffled whisper of the vocal part. Then the painful rhythmic heartbeat of the saddened dusk. Then the saddened pulsations of the instrumental bridges alternate with a swift drive with the return of vocals.
The Into Coffin - Unconquered Abysses album continues with a stringy twilight procession of rhythmic guitar riffs, the Unconquered Light of Nothingness composition whose name looks like a somewhat rephrased album's title. Then the music as if trying to throw off the shackles of painful fetters, but the vocals appealed to the procession of the dark march, as if legions of evil creatures were marching into battle for the sake of conquest ... they themselves do not know what. Or maybe it’s a bottomless abyss, in which endless variations of darkness and evil can be embodied.
After a distant rumble from the depths of the catacombs, the Catacombal Echoes song first marches with the solemn grandeur of an inspired march, but then everything condenses and condenses the rhythmic component of the musical narration, while maintaining a rather slow tempo of the musical composition, subordinating its musical essence to the leisurely narration of the vocal part. But sometimes music breaks out of the vocal directions that hold back its pace and drive and forces some tempo acceleration.
The album’s final composition Archetype for the Total Ruin throws off the constraint and chases the line between medium-tempo power and a high-speed musical thriller, introducing a whirlwind of violent fury at the end of the album, sometimes encircling the axis of the main motive with dense ribbons of guitar riffs. In the vocal part, the unity of screaming and growling is more pronounced than before.
