Editorial Reviews

Year of No Light is a group that takes their influences and expands them into a
sound and feeling they can be proud to call their own. Take the almost religious
radiance of Jesu and the cinematic atmosphere of Envy, add the backbone of
thick and sludgy riffing à la early Pelican or Capricorns, throw in a dash of the
experimental ambient elements of Rosetta and Overmars and the transcendently
poetic dual-guitar harmonies of Impure Wilhelmina and Mouth of the Architect, and
you have the recipe for something truly special.

5.0 out of 5 stars PostRockJunkie May 24, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Line-up changes can often be the demise of a good band, or in rare cases it can result in improvement. In the case of 'Year Of No Light', it resulted in a reinvention of the band. First off there are no vocals on this entire album. (Yes it's only four tracks, but it is over 45 minutes so in my opinion it is an album.) Second the sound has definitely changed. The straight up hard core elements of Nord are gone; strictly a post rock sound. This album is a little bit heavier in style than Nord, leaning more towards doom. The instrumentation has a more dense sound than their previous work. More like a wall of sound, but still with obvious melody; imagine 'Rosetta' without vocals. While Ausserwelt is not as complex as Nord, it is beautiful and powerful from the first note to the last. In a word...Intense.

4.0 out of 5 stars First Two Songs May 13, 2014

The first two songs on this album make it worth buying alone. Persephone 1 and Persephone 2 are two of the greatest post metal songs I've ever heard. The rest of the album is decent, but pales in comparison.

A truly amazing album. It's dark, brooding, and atmospheric.
