‘Ex Oriente Lux’ is the debut independent album from the Singapore-based death metal band Adarrak.
Formed in 2016 Adarrak has been rocking stages & building up to this, and the moment is finally here.
It is hard to describe a shapeless object that keeps shifting, just like it’s hard to pinpoint things in this album to review! From the Black Sabbath-esqe intro of ”Into The Abyss”, the arpeggiation over slamming chords of ”Withering” to the frantic riffage of ”Bereft” (featuring Marty Freidman) this album is an amalgamation of head-banging metal styles complete with a plentitude of epic guitar solos!
Throughout the album you notice Adarrak’s ability to switch it up, mixing multiple genres & styles of metal into a truly encompassing experience, everyone into metal should find something to love in this album.
Ex Oriente Lux is available now on CD Digipak, Digital & Streaming. - Metal Digest
