They Came From Visions - The Twilight Robes (2024)


Creating a very captivating blend of Black Metal with Post-Metal/Rock elements, today we have Ukraine’s They Came From Visions and their sophomore release “The Twilight Robes”. Featuring seven tracks and nearly 45 minutes of elaborate music, this release perfectly delivers waves of fury alongside moody melodic passages, creating uniquely haunting and desolate atmospheres.

Opening with the folky mood setting “Lughnasadh”, the album kicks into gear with the blistering riffing of “Equinox Ablaze”, a very crafty track that while having some of that 90’s Black Metal luster, it also features lush clean interludes filled with dreamy vocals and guitars. Our personal favorite track has to be the furious “Burning Eyes Blackened Claws” and its intense opening, and then perfectly transitioning into more melodic territories alongside pummeling drums.

The band’s ability to switch from blistering intensity to lush and majestically crafted dreamy passages is top notch and tracks like “Petrified Immortality” and the mysterious “The Sign Of Damnation”. We are suckers for a band that can change things up nearly instantly and does so with grace, and this release is full of sections like this. There are tons of classic Black Metal elements that are very tastefully offset by more delicate and crafty sections, however, the intensity and suspense is always kept very high.

Closing with the Batushka-esque “Twilight Robes”, this release managed to hold our attention from start to end and it even triggered more than usual replays, just to fully digest and enjoy all different elements and influences presented. Highly recommended for fans of well crafted and more melancholic Black Metal, “The Twilight Robes” clearly shows that They Came From Visions is a band full of talent and interesting ideas.
