Review: Ephel Duath's upcoming album "Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness"

Ephel Duath are releasing a new album in November through Agonia Records. The album will be called Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness. As you know, Ephel Duath used to play something more related to Black Metal than now, but you still can find a lot of influences in there.
Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness is definitely a very different album, very experimental, very strange at parts.
Voice is just incredible, almost insane, so good! And again, strange.
It is hard to describe such a selection of songs. It is hard to describe the style, it is undoubtedly unique.
The track Tracing The Path of Blood is just incredible, so powerful and catchy and really different from everything else.
Even though it is not a proper Black Metal band (so you shouldn't expect any characteristic aspects of it), there are bits and pieces of it here and there.
There is a lot of anger and aggressiveness in singing, very emotional stuff.
So give it a go, you won't be disappointed. Warning: (and also being redundant), it is strange.
