When I first found Vow Of Volition, I actually started laughing as they are producing the “How to write like” videos in YouTube (Check it here), hilarious and still awesome stuff. That album was highly anticipated and Anthelion is no disappoint, groovy and technical, the record is of top quality. This bombardment of riffs is so well structured, that you can hardly get enough of it, dive on, a lot to dig in…
Anthelion has the punch and the melody
Sound and Production :
Well compressed sound that doesn’t overlap, I think the mids are a little bit higher than usual, but that has been well controlled. They have been looking for a Meshuggah sounding djent chugs, and they’ve got them, bold decision, sounds fantastic. There is a distinct character of the sound and their approach is more natural, so that gives a very unique feeling. As to the melodic guitars, they are hiding their lows a bit, that makes everything more loud and aggressive. Drums together with the bass sound very clear, making the body of the sound awesomely heavy, heavy breathing experience.
Vow Of Volition have demonstrated they know how to handle sound, their ideas are fresh and interesting. I anticipated Anthelion and I must say, that for a first full record, the result is astonishing.
