Subject: 2: Crafteon - Cosmic Reawakening From: .jh Date: 2017-12-19T12:35:45Z Tags: music blog best\ of best\ of\ 2017 Crafteon Cosmic\ Reawakening 2017 ![Cosmic Reawakening](/gfx/667632.jpg) _Cosmic Reawakening_ is the debut by Colorado's Crafteon who do a fine job blending the better parts melodic black metal with parts death metal. This lends a bit of gravitas to the sound making the melodic riffs less inclined to give you diabetes. Lord Mordi’s vocals are spot on for this, belting out Lovecraftian horror in all it's majesty, mostly keeping them to Inquisition croaks, albeit less recognizable. It's an album I've heard very little about and seen on very few lists so perhaps I missed the memo, but since it's release in August I think this is the album I've returned to the most, it has a nasty tendency to get stuck in your head and before I know it I'm hitting 'repeat' again. _Cosmic Reawakening_ was the darkest horse for me this year, but a very worthwhile one.
