DARKANE
LAYERS OF LIES
NUCLEAR BLAST

Revel in the sinister symphonies via LAYERS OF LIES, the 12-track endeavor by Sweden's Darkane. This veteran act combine a spirited classical music influence shared by many of black metal's elite with some of the most progressively arranged songs (think Nevermore), rippingly heavy riffs, and an uncanny sense of melody for a band of their ilk, reminiscent of a merger of Soilwork, Fear Factory, Strapping Young Lad, At the Gates, and The Haunted. Despite this album being almost two years old, it still packs a mighty punch with the soaring highs and crushing lows encountered on hook-laden extreme metal anthems like "Vision of Degradation" and "Decadent Messiah".
