Review:

Experimental, avant-black metal artisans LOCRIAN present Infinite Dissolution, dark and cinematic work of bizarre extremities and inspiring musicianship.

Infinite Dissolution was produced by Greg Norman (Pelican, Russian Circles) so definitely worth checking out if you’re a fan of his production style.

This multi-part concept album is a blend of dark ambience, drone, black metal, post-rock, and experimental electronics. Clever? interesting? Yes, however to some it may not be as engaging as they would like.
