Review from Ave Noctum

The old-world charm of Victoria, British Columbia, isn’t the sort of place I’d associate with “black metal surging with atmosphere and anguish, melancholy and rage” but this is what we have.

With an eleven-minute track at each end of this 55-minute work, this plainly isn’t your old school “let’s make a statement, fill the air with evil and be gone” black metal. Epic and atmospheric is what it is. Fires burn on “A Hollow...

Review from Metal Temple

From their Bandcamp page, “On their debut full-length, “Through the False Narrows,” LIMINAL SHROUD takes inspiration from the surging ocean and mist-strewn coast to explore themes of futility, passage, and individual and metaphysical transformation. As the skies turn grey and dense fogs hang above the shoreline, LIMINAL SHROUD will expel a swirl of melancholia and torment over its moss-strewn forests and perilous waves.” The al...

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...

Review from Angry Metal Guy

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...

Review from Permafrost

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. Wit...
