spectral_groove_HM2 un projet époustouflant. On entend les Tronçonneuses du Death suédois, la noirceur glaçante du Black Metal, on sent l'odeur de charpente d'église en feu et il y a ces melodies mélancoliques qui nous transportent. C'est absolument bien réalisé, c'est puissant et propre. Merci pour ce son de qualité. THE SAW IS THE LAW ! Bisous depuis la Suisse. Favorite track: Dawn of a New Day.
Metallurgical Fire

Metallurgical Fire This is my favorite HM-2 based band, and that includes the Swedish pioneers of the sound. I love all four albums but the last two are classics. Crusty blackened death metal with perfect guitar tone and great drums. This was my number one played album on other platforms in 2019. Favorite track: Deathlike Silence.

Conducted by Evil Driven by 666 Reading unholy books Define the Devil Enlightened by Darkness Thy light becomes black Churches are burning World is crumbling Marching through fire and time Your own will is your saviour Enclosed screams in Dead Land Conducted by Evil Driven by 666 Reading unholy books Define the Devil Enlightened by Darkness Thy light becomes black Churches are burning World is crumbling In Darkness I dwell Angels of Hell Craving toward me

Revenge 04:00
This is a vendetta A sweet revenge Like a punch In your face I’m going to rip your fucking face Taking your teeth with my fist Wrecking and smashing your ribs away Watch me smile Feel my revenge Eye for an Eye Now you will pay As the life drops from your eyes I can see you Leaving this world As the death comes To pick you Regrets are too late Now it’s straight to hell

Looking into the void Into the darkness Run to the void’s kingdom And stretch their arms Walk with me into the void it’s growing under my skin I’ve lived it thousand times Choosing the left hand path Looking into the void Into the darkness Run to the void’s kingdom And stretch their arms Walk with me into the void it’s growing under my skin I’ve lived it thousand times Choosing the left hand path Looking into the void Into the darkness Run to the void’s kingdom And stretch their arms Walk with me into the void it’s growing under my skin I’ve lived it thousand times Choosing the left hand path

Being cold Total damnation Feeling numb Invaded by Winter Freezing death Sky turning black Life untrue Burning my disguise Deathlike silence Ruling for nothing Deathlike silence Coward until the end Impersonating Making illusion not ! Spreading your Venom Manipulation You’re like a disease Go to rot in Hell Deathlike silence Ruling for nothing Deathlike silence Coward until the end Just an appearance Devouring the dark Brainwashing fellows Keep your hands clean Let them burn Let them kill Death prevail Final war is here Enslaved in Your own mind Now you’re dead Killed by your own victim Body stabbed In selfdefense Deathlike silence Ruling for nothing Deathlike silence Coward until the end

Dawn of a new day Mistakes were made Now the night comes Sunlight is fading away Rise and fall In torment Swim across The river of lies Fight and kill Seek and destroy Let it bleed No more breath Dawn of a new day Mistakes were made Now the night comes Sunlight is fading away Unleash your hate Take no prisoners The last fight We’re standing for Hacking and slashing No remorse Pleasure to kill No more pain

Black Sword 04:54
In the depth of my mind An evil is hiding waiting to escape Waiting for a weakness This is my dark side No one can take it People stare at me Not so different I’m the black mind All Lost in the rain I’m the dark lord Enforcing the light away Night wings Above me Calling Me to leave Push me Over Drag me Under Fighting for my life Avoiding chaos Exploding inside Burning in the outside This is war inside Me myself and I This need to survive Life is killing me
8.
Living without compromise Heartless with no pity At the Edge of the World Marching through the fire Avoiding human contact Bruised soul and desperate Staying on the edge of life Living without compromise Heartless with no pity At the Edge of the World
9.
There is no light There is no hope No turning back Slipping away Lying lifeless My body dies Soul corrupted Until you die Beloved Darkness Take me away Black mind Under Dark mask Broken Soul Taking pills to survive Sedated brain Drinking to forget the pain Feeling numb and dead inside Impossible to move Anxiety is taking over Feeling alone and desperate Depression is killing me There is no light There is no hope No turning back Slipping away

Deathlike Silence Play-Through : youtu.be/YwMAoRK-89g

"Steeped in HM2 death metal worship, Enlightened by Darkness is In Shadows and Dust’s fourth album in as many years. Melding HM2-driven death with cold black metal, it’s not uncommon for Thirion to sharply transition from soaring blackness to bass heavy, grooving death metal at the drop of a hat. There’s also a healthy dose of D-beat injected into the songs, meaning that In Shadows and Dust isn’t a project that retreads ground that’s been explored countless times. "

"...the massive HM-2 tone (the saw is the law!) provides a monstrous undercurrent to a track that’s propelled by furious battering and thundering drumwork and suffused with waves of vicious, roiling riffs. No less vicious are the vocals, which are unhinged and mind-scarring in the quality of their shrieking proclamations. The turbocharged energy of the song is irresistible, but surges even higher into the red zone through the appearance of high, scintillating leads, rippling in an intense and effervescent boil."

"In Shadows and Dust stick the middle finger up to those expectations by bringing crushing heaviness, exciting rhythm and melodic passages that has all the workings of Swede-Melo Death but so much more....Death metal rarely sounds this good."
- Games, Brrraaaiiins, and a Head-Banging Life

"..lovely pissed off Swedish Black and death metal sound of old, rancid school, the angular riffing is refined with subtle melodies and minimal crust bonds."
- Zephyr's Odem
goo.gl/BjiwML

" In Shadows And Dust plays a musical style that goes back to the 90's era of melodic Swedish black and death metal while also adding in a more aggressive approach to the genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness themes. In my opinion In Shadows And Dust are a very great sounding melodic and old school mixture of black and death metal. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Enlightened By Darkness" "Deathlike Silence" and "At the Edge Of The World". 8 out of 10

"..once again in shadows and dust manages to push its limits to offer a powerful and elegant album, " enlightened by darkness " Bears its name. Time passes, this passionate man refines his art, gives him more and more importance and we really hope that December 21, 2019 will be synonymous with a new chapter of his life."

" In Shadows and Dust : Enlightened By Darkness - Album
IN SHADOWS AND DUST blend Swedish death metal like early NECROPHOBIC, In Flames and At The Gates with the melodies from Naglfar and Dissection (Official). It's a combination that works good. But it's not until the third track, "Revenge", that it start to sound really good. This is absolutely something that you should check out. It's old school and have a classic sound, but it doesn't sound exactly like a thousand others. I didn't say that this is something unique though. But it's damned good."
