VINCENT CROWLEY – “Beyond Acheron” - Reviewed By Metal Digest ! Check it out here at this link: https://metal-digest.com/2021/08/06/vincent-crowley-beyond-acheron/
You may be aware that I am not the biggest fan of Black and Death Metal, but I have been dabbling in the underworldly realms for some time now. ‘Beyond Acheron’ has solidified my decision to venture further down the rabbit hole.
After 30 years of fronting the legendary Acheron, Vincent Crowley has started a new and perhaps even darker chapter. With ‘Beyond,’ he brings along all the aspects that made Acheron great, but also incorporates a more updated sound. Best of both worlds, if you will. Fans of Crowley’s earlier work will relish the sinister tones and the minor key atmosphere. This is the blackened bedrock.
‘Beyond’ integrates shades of Doom, fits of manic Thrash, and of course, Crowley’s signature style of Blackened Death. There is a good mixture of tempos, all with an undeniable sense of foreboding. Lyrically, songs range from the macabre, yet intriguing (“Farewell At Death’s Door)” to outright disturbing (“My Eternal Vow.”) Truthfully, these songs could be about puppies and rainbows and they would still sound as menacing as your childhood nightmares. That’s a good thing, folks.
Drawing from the darker regions and beyond, Crowley takes the listener on a bleak and horrifically satisfying journey. A perfect accompaniment for your walk down the left-hand path. - Metal Digest

After 30 years of fronting Black / Death Metal underground legends ACHERON, lead vocalist Vincent Crowley put the group to the rest to pursue a solo career with the new band - VINCENT CROWLEY. Back from the blacked Abyss, this new musical entity veers to a different dark path from his past work. Instead, the material is influenced by all kinds of metal music and is hard to be automatically lumped into any certain genre. Along with their macabre music, a visual stage - show of horror is planned for live performances.
VINCENT CROWLEY is trying to bring back the feel of days of the underground that wasn't limited and constricted to one music genre. Fans of ACHERON, BLACK SABBATH, BATHORY, MERCYFUL FATE/KING DIAMOND, TROUBLE, CELTIC FROST, CANDLEMASS, and even DANZIG could all enjoy this new band.
“Beyond Acheron” was recorded at Sonic Lounge Studios with Joe Viers as a producer. This 8-track album has a dark sound while maintaining a great production.
Lyrically, “Beyond Acheron” is a conceptional album. It climbs the rungs of the latter of death. From beginning to end it takes the listener on a ghastly journey with somber tales of doom, casting a Poe-esque shadow.
