In Review: Shadowflag – In Asylum Requiem



Label: Clobber Records

Release Date: June 19th 2020

Cheltenham’s black metal beasts unleash their 4th album

The first time I actually listened to this album the weather was miserable and the moment the album started I was immediately drawn in as opener “Lest the Night be Thorned” starts of cold & raw and ends with some great chanting & title track “In Asylum Requiem” follows straight after with some absolutely bone crunching drums and relentless in it’s delivery.

The halfway mark of the album is where my highlight track lays in wait “One Beast One God” invades the ears with some stand out guitar riffs.

“From Agony To Cold” ominously builds into a frenzy that encases like a swirling mist and has a fresh feel to a very old school black metal sounding track. Also, the solo at the midway point is a dream

Penultimate track “Nameless Realm Eternal” starts off with a frenzy and is just like a cenobites hook in a victim’s back it’s not letting go for anything…

Lastly. the album ends with the 10 minute soundtrack to the apocalypse “To The Earth, To The Corpse, To The Seas – This track really define how much the band have further evolved since 2017s The Delusion Machine it’s obvious the three years have in between spent well, They have a sound and signature that is all their own.
