Subject: 4: Sisyphean - Colours of Faith From: .jh Date: 2022-12-22T22:24:00Z Tags: music blog best\ of best\ of\ 2022 Sisyphean Colours\ of\ Faith 2022 ![Colours of Faith](/gfx/1022837.jpg) Sisyphean were another new find this year, cleverly marketed as dissonant blackmetal which is not only an apt description but probably helped it in a year which saw releases from many of the bands it was being compared to. Their previous full-length clearly shows some of the dissonant tendencies albeit not quite as fleshed out as they are here, _Illusions of Eternity_ is a bit simpler and more of a straight forward blackmetal album. Here they clearly doubled down on that aspect but without losing sight of the larger whole and still ending up with well composed and memorable songs. The album is neatly split in two parts with the first and fifth very short synth/industrial tracks each opening to three proper tracks, this lends itself to comparisons between the parts but having gone back and forth I can't ultimately say which one I prefer or which I'd consider stronger. It's simply too good an album for that. Highly anticipating what comes next from this Lithuanian quintet. [Sisyphean on Encyclopaedia Metallum]( ---
