Angel Eyes - Something To Do With Death

Angel Eyes - Something To Do With Death
Cold and brutal post-metal that is equally as charged in black metal and hardcore. Obviously indebted to Godspeed, Angel Eyes debut LP is a lumbering and tranquil experiment in the ideas of layering and repetition. Sure, bands like Isis and Neurosis have been playing this sound for years now but Angel Eyes is able to combine the tonal noises of black metal and emo into something that is not completely singular but certainly a highlight in a very similar genre. Obviously the other sound this band evokes is a western approach which is clearly evident in their name, album title, and love of Ennio.
