Immolation - Shadows in the Light

Posted on Thursday, June 16, 2011

Do these guys ever tire of putting out quality albums? It’s been one right after another for the last 13 years (yes, they’ve been around longer than that, but I honestly didn’t care for Dawn of Possession). Shadows in the Light is pure Immolation, and that’s really saying something. They have established themselves as Death Metal legends over the years with a unique, trademark style all their own. Almost impossible to duplicate, therefore rarely attempted. You have to hold them in the same regard as Morbid Angel, Deicide, Vader, any Death Metal band with an instantly recognizable sound. This is a concrete culmination of everything this band’s been up to since Here in After, and while I don’t think it quite tops the perfection of Harnessing Ruin, it’s essential Immolation. The two words now officially synonyms. The proof: “Hate’s Plague,” “Passion Kill,” “World Agony,” “Deliverer of Evil,” and “Lying with Demons.”
