As most of you already know, Alan Parsons is known as one of the greatest sound engineers of the 70s progressive rock era. His most known engineering credits include Abbey Road, Atom Heart Mother, and The Dark Side of The Moon. More recently, he engineered Steven Wilson's The Raven That Refused to Sing.

Almost two years ago, I found an album on the internet and it was, in many ways, life-changing. It was atmospheric, haunting, and crushingly majestic. It sort of fell within the same box as established acts like Cult of Luna, ISIS, Neurosis and so on, but also with something new added to the mix. That album was Metamorphosis by a band named Crib45, hailing from Finland. It is and will always be, one of my personal favorite albums.

Ear-maggots anyone? Standard issue ear-worms for the fans of experimental music.

Light Through A Dead Glass is Epitasis' second EP and in describing it, the term "sheer brilliance" is more or less an understatement. As unsettling and chaotic it may seem, Epitasis managed to reincarnate the essence of primitive black metal with some spectacular riffs and melodic interludes. While the ambient passages offer the listener a break from the madness, you're in for a rude awakening every time they are interrupted by a desolating riff or a haunting shriek.
