AETHYRICK Apotheosis CD
Atmospheric Finnish Black Metal! The last part of the trilogy!
And "feverish" is an apt description of Aethyrick's ways and means, for soon arrives their third full-length spell, again through the auspices of The Sinister Flame: Apotheosis. As perfectly titled at this point in their majestic chronology as any, Apotheosis culminates Aethyrick's glorious march into the beyond - both punctuation, final and austere, and also as the opening of a new chapter. It sees the duo going from strength to strength, making no great changes to their enviously developed aesthetic, but suffusing it with ever-subtle expansions of atmosphere and songwriting nuance. Indeed, where the preceding Gnosis was a subtle refinement, Apotheosis makes that subtlety even more miniscule... and yet the sum effect feels grander, vaster, even liberating.
