2015 might have been the year I scoured through the most music. It was a phenomenal year for metal and jaw-dropping albums just came one after another, unrelentingly, month after month, week after week. Even then, Grey Heaven passed my radar completely undetected until now, which is a crying shame because it would have found it’s way into my “best of 2015″ list. Yeah, this one’s a stunner.

Hailing from Russia, Grey Heaven Fall play dark, dynamic, dramatic black/death metal. It’s symphonic but not in a keyboards simulating a symphony kind of way. It’s more like how the music moves, it’s formation and intensity. There are also moments of sheer beauty and remarkable clarity. It’s amazing how this band moves the music around and get’s from point A to point B. It’s sheer intensity and dark majesty. I fucking love this album.
