Cold Body Radiation biography
COLD BODY RADIATION is a one-man progressive metal band from Holland, Netherlands, whose sole member goes by the pseudonym ''M''. The project was formed sometime in 2009 and has since released two full-lengths: 2010's ''The Great White Emptiness'' and 2011's ''Deer Twilight'', both on the Dusktone label.

COLD BODY RADIATION's music is stylistically and sonically black metal, but incredibly heavy in atmosphere and mood, oftentimes incorporating more elements of shoegaze, drone, post-rock, and ambient than abrasive metal. Shrieks and blast-beats reminiscent of ENSLAVED or early IHSAHN give way to passages of effects-laden tremolo guitars and layered post-rock melodies familiar to fans of bands like ALCEST or ALTAR OF PLAGUES, and for stretches of time weaving in extremely dense and rhythmless soundscapes closer in style to ambient artists like BIOSPHERE or TIM HECKER. Those with interest in the post-black metal scene would find much to love about COLD BODY RADIATION's dark blend of atmosphere and progressive metal.

Deer Twilight
Cold Body Radiation Experimental/Post Metal

Review by ole-the-first

4 stars 'Deer Twilight' is the second album by a Dutch one man's band Cold Body Radiation. Like Alcest, Cold Body Radiation is mixing post-metal with shoegaze and black metal, other significant influences include ambient and post-rock.

The music of Cold Body Radiation is rather moody and atmospheric than heavy, accented more on slow introspection than on terrorizing black metal shrieks or metal styled playing. Vocals on this album are rather blurred with noisy texture and almost inaudible. With shoegaze noises, mix of deep shrieks, whispers and clean vocals, rare but significant acoustic guitar passages, sometimes appearing heavy drums and ambient moments, this album creates a great atmosphere which should work very well for those who love shoegaze, post-metal or both.

The album opens with mellow instrumental 'Deer Twilight' which lasts almost for 7 minutes, it is one of the highlights here. Whilst 'Make Believe', the second track, continues slow mood with mellow intro, then it rolls into more shoegaze direction, which would be main on this record. 'Shimmer' is probably one of the best song post-metal ever had. Stunning mellow intro, great melody overruned with inconherent whispers and screams, well, it's better to listen to it than to read any descriptions. 'Concept' is a heavier thing here, the closest to black metal song on this record. Album leaves us with another great atmospheric song 'Yes, Maybe the Stars', which is full of excellent keyboard work and setting-the-mood sounds of owl's hooting.

Sad, beautiful and atmospheric, it is a great album, recommended especially for Alcest fans. So don't miss it!

Thanks to aapatsos for the artist addition.
