Review by VOTOMS

2 stars It's not HORRIBLE, but this is generally bad. That's the problem into modern death metal and grindore bands: Too much skill. Sometimes they are brutal ENOUGH, and the crowd can't headbang into the rhytm. And this is the kind of album that after the end, I remember nothing about the tracks. Lack of soul, lack of memorable riffs. Technical+Brutal is actually getting boring and boring. The bands have nothing to show, only the same ultra blast beating drums and random fast riffage. But OK, if you are into this kind of bands, take a look at Aeon of Horus. My rate for this is 2/5 stars. They are not so bad like other bands of this sub-genre. And the track n.8 ("Heru-Ra-Ha") is fun in my opinion.

Review by VOTOMS

— First review of this album —
2 stars ". . .the crowned and conquering child, who dieth not, nor is reborn, but goeth radiant ever upon His Way. Even so goeth the Sun: for as it is now known that night is but the shadow of the Earth, so Death is but the shadow of the Body, that veileth his Light from its bearer." This is what Crowley wrote about the Aeon of Horus. Yes, the band name is a reference to a Thelema religion expression. Well, I'm not into this kind of stuff, but the only song that I like here is Heru Ra Ha and the lyrics talk about thelema stuff ("The modern day is born of the law of thelema"). Well, it doesn't matter at all. I don't like this EP. Few and boring songs. The album is a way better, 2/5.

3 stars "The Embodiment of Darkness and Light" is the debut full-length studio album by Australian death metal act Aeon of Horus. The album was released in November 2009 and is a self-released affair.

On "The Embodiment of Darkness and Light", Aeon of Horus play technical/ progressive death metal. The tracks are pretty complex in structure and there is an emphasis on technical playing. There are melodic playing too though and atmospheric sections. While the playing is skillfully executed Iīm not as impressed by the songwriting. There doesnīt always seem to be a goal to the many ideas and sometimes the tracks sound like they are just made out of lot of different ideas but not with a full song in mind. In that respect the music on "The Embodiment of Darkness and Light" somewhat reminds me of the music by an act like Anata. That means a lot of skillful technical playing and impressive ideas but tracks that lack memorability and direction. The fact that the sound production is a bit thin (I canīt for the life of me detect that there is any bass playing on the album) doesnīt help on my impression of the album either.

So all in all "The Embodiment of Darkness and Light" is a pretty standard technical/ progressive death metal album. The most interesting thing about the album is the musicianship, so while the tracks come off as a bit disjointed and lacking memorable moments, the strong musicianship save much. A 3 star (60%) rating is warranted.
