Lithik – Weather the Storm (Album Review)

Release Date: November 05th 2021 - Indepandent

Lithik - Weather

If you want a bit of kick-arse, melodic doom then get this up ya!

Lithik has released their debut album, Weather the storm, and boy what a journey! Coming from Ray McGill (Bane of Isildur, Spherical, Bastardizer, Metal) we have 6 songs and 28 minutes of sweet, sweet metal to my ears.

The first song, New Moon, is an absolute ripper! With some awesome driving, riffs make this the sort of song that you just feel awesome listening to. Whether you’re driving your Mustang across the desert or folding laundry, you’ll feel like a badarse if this part of your soundtrack.

This is a great album with a lot of awesome songs, but there is one thing that I think draws this back, and that is a lack of certainty and place. For me, some of the best black metal transports you to a place and connects you to emotion with the place. Take Alpenpässe by Minenwerfer for example. This album transports the listener to the Italian Alps during the First World War.

Instead of having the ambient Mountain Air be the second track, between two mighty songs, New Moon and Lithification Of Time, I believe that having the two heavy-hitting tracks one after another would have helped the album flow and given it more presence.

This is a minor gripe though, overall, this is an album to get excited about and to download so that if you’re feeling down and want to put on some kick-arse metal, you know where to go.
