Unter dem Titel „Through The False Narrows“ erscheint dieser Tage das Debütalbum des kanadischen Trios LIMINAL SHROUD. In Form der damals selbstbetitelten Demo, haben die drei Musiker bereits 2018 erstmals von sich hören lassen und die Aufmerksamkeit des keineswegs mehr unbekannten Labels Hypnotic Dirge Records auf sich gezogen, das sich nun der Veröffentlichung der neuen schwarzmetallischen Langrille angenommen hat.

Liminal Shroud are a relatively new band, based in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. The trio have produced a raw black metal sound since their inception in 2017. The following year came a much vaunted demo, three of the four tracks of which are reworked here. Through the False Narrows is their debut album and is released by Hypnotic Dirge. The band are the first local band the record label has released since their relocation to...

The bands sound is a mix of Orthodox Black Metal, Depressive Black Metal and Atmospheric Black Metal, all of which is tempered with a large...

Questa fine di novembre ci porta una piccola gioia, perfetta da gustare in un periodo tetro come questo: il 20 novembre, infatti, uscirà il primo full-length dei Liminal Shroud sotto Hypnotic Dirge Records.

I tre componenti del gruppo, Rich Taylor, Drew Davidson e Aidan Crossley sono essenzialmente al loro debutto più importante. I tre provengono dal Canada, più precisamente da Victoria, una cittadina sulla costa pacifica.

In “Through...

Earlier this year, I wrote a two–part feature looking at three relatively small, independent metal labels that consistently seem to put out great metal. One of those labels was Hypnotic Dirge, whose boss Nicolas Fernandes-Skog gave up a huge amount of his time to answer my dumb questions, just as he was relocating Hypnotic Dirge (and, I guess, his life) across Canada from Saskatoon to Victoria, BC. Now, Hypnotic Dirge is about t...

Liminal Shroud comes from a really beautiful part of Canada, but they still manage to make a raw black metal. Wavy seas and foggy days create dark moods. The band draws inspiration from the landscape where they live and creates an atmospheric, dark music that reflects the despair and rage they have. The three Canadian musicians offers a very good black metal in my opinion!

This debut record from Victoria, British Colombia-based atmospheric black metal trio Liminal Shroud certainly delivers and deserves quite a few more adjectives than mere “atmospheric” status; In fact ‘Through the False Narrows’ achieves a crawling, tightly performed and intense bonding of post-metal, depressive black metal, and atmospheric black metal ideals without losing the plot to tunnel vision or indistinct movements.
