Subject: 4: Blaze of Perdition - Conscious Darkness From: .jh Date: 2017-12-17T17:37:45Z Tags: music blog best\ of best\ of\ 2017 Blaze\ of\ Perdition Conscious\ Darkness 2017 ![Conscious Darkness](/gfx/659552.jpg) Two years after _Near Death Revelations_ Blaze of Perdition returns with their fourth album. With only four tracks yet clocking in at 46 plus minutes this is quite a bit to digest. While longest song Ashes Remain is in many ways the best song on the album I will quibble with the occasional clean vocals, I'm not categorically opposed but in this instance I'm not convinced of their usefulness. Shortest song Weight of Shadow is also probably the weakest but the album ends on a high note with the excellent Detachment Brings Serenity. This is a well put together album often at the edge of blackmetal, seeing what comes next will be interesting.
