2021 Best of Metal: #11 Be’Lakor-Coherence

Origin: Melbourne, Australia

Release date: 10/29/2021

Personnel: George Kosmas-vox/guitar, Shaun Sykes-guitar, John Richardson-bass, Steve Merry-keyboards, Elliott Sansom-drums

The album is pure Scandinavian melodic death metal by way of Melbourne, Australia. I swear there is a secret tunnel running from Finland to Australia. There is no other way to fully explain how Be’Lakor managed to produce an album that feels this frozen. This album is reminiscent of Insomnium, Omnium Gatherum and even early era Katatonia. Lush epic songs are what you can expect on this one.
