4.0 out of 5 stars Black metal by members of Behemoth and Vader December 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
With members from Poland's greatest extreme bands Vader and Behemoth, namely Orion on guitars and vocals and Daray on drums, Vesania's second album is a good example of symphonic black metal. Although more noticeable on their debut, their music is still undeniably influenced by Emperor, both in the way the keyboards are used and its almost mechanical production. Orion's vocals are more like death growls rather than screamed black metal shrieks though. He sounds a bit like Shagrath from Dimmu Borgir as he opts for a rough, gravelly delivery. And when the music is decorated with elaborate synth lines, as on "Fireclipse", marked by very heavy riffs, the comparisons are inevitable. Likewise, "Synchroscheme" features luscious keyboards contrasted by brutal vocals and an Emperor-like song pattern.

As much as Napalm Records may claim otherwise, Vesania isn't breaking new ground. However, they certainly are a good band in the way that they know songs can use all kinds of variation in rhythm and tempo. Rather than playing stupidly fast guitar licks and incessant double bass drums, drummer Daray certainly incorporates his death metal background in the mix with awesome cymbal hopping on the tremelo-picked "Rest in Pain", a song defined by a fierce rhythmic anchor, melodic breaks, and symphonic sounds. At the end of the song, however, Daray reaches his ultimate apex as his playing matches the speed of a steam engine. Aside from the blast beat-ridden drums, the guitar work alternates between slow, menacing riffage to ultra-heavy and crushing tones.

4.0 out of 5 stars A strong album November 2, 2005
By Homer
Format:Audio CD
I'm surprised this band isn't getting more attention. This CD shows that they have developed a very aggresive sound. Posthuman Kind is definately THE stand out track, it is just so powerful and epic. It has the later Dimmu feel, however, not all tracks are like this. The rest of the tracks are just brutal metal, Orion, of BEHEMOTH, another great band, does the vocals and guitar work. A big complaint of mine about this album, and this is why I gave it 4 stars, is that the vocals are mixed so far back in the music you can barely hear them. Synchroscheme is a great blast beat filled track of metal. A lot of promise on this, the album feels a little disjointed at times and this causes some of the songs to not be that memorable. A great buy if you enjoy well produced black metal/thrash metal, Behemoth fans will probably enjoy this. The vocals are definately not as deep as Behemoth's, more like mid-range growling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great black/death metal from Poland December 8, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Vesania is a truly talented band. With members from Behemoth and Vader you know that this cd should be good and thankfully it is. In kind of a symphonic black/death metal combination, Vesania creates some excellent music. All of the tracks are amazing and the production is very well done. My only complaint would be that its a little on the short side but thats not a big deal. If you are looking for a band that is great at what they play and hasn't gone the mainstream route of other blackmetal bands, then grab yourself a copy of God the Lux. You won't be sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2005's best extreme metal album June 9, 2006
Format:Audio CD
'God the Lux' holds merit as both a piece of introspective philosophy and a talented and progressive black metal set piece.

Lyrically Vesania has some of the best lyrics in all of metal - if you like Borknagar lyrically you will enjoy the intensely philosophic lyrics of Vesania. Vesania covers topics such as impermenance of matter in the vein of Heraclitus, the superficial and often dishonest nature of human beings, the suffering of iconoclasts and those who chose not to live within society's vile ways; the silence and desolation found there, metamorphosis, existentialism, nihilism and much more. The album also follows a narrative centered around the speaker's transformation into a 'self-styled archangel' and his smiting of society. At the end its suggested that the entire album has been a existential dream:

heads high, nothing can stand our wrath

heads high, never stop to dream on

heads high, no one can bury our realm

assassination of hypocrites

now watch them falling

but do you enjoy your dream?

is 'everything' enough?

aren't you trying to walk the path you've never understood?

yet underneath laughter and sun

consequence of all my will and truth

I scatter the ashes of mirrors of me, crushed

legions army

The theory that the entire narrative being a existential dream is hinted at on the album's last track, which is just 26 minutes of silence called "Inlustra Nigror" which means literally "Darkness, be light!" in Latin. If interpretted in this way, the lyrics and experience of listenting to Vesania take on a even more tragic and poignant meaning.
