Music Review: Swallow The Sun – Emerald Forest And The Blackbird (2012)

Emerald Forest And The Blackbird will help the listener understand that it is futile expecting Swallow The Sun to make any changes in their sound or style of song-writing. And why should the band deviate from the formula that won them their own place in doom metal? With Emerald Forest And The Blackbird, the death/doom band continues its spree of making dark, beautiful music that clicks with its fans. Swallow The Sun repeat themselves again, crafting yet another piece of music dripping with melancholy. It’s one big sound – a depressive cloud in front of you; not as deep or saddening as their debut, but captivating nevertheless, and the band might as well call it a continuation you might as well accept that every album Swallow The Sun have made has been a continuation of The Morning Never Came. Just play them all in a row and marvel at the consistency, for were they to change their sound or style to anything else we’d refuse to recognize them.
