Lantern Review

Lantern - Below

You can never judge a book by its cover… or in this case a CD cover. Upon first glance i was expecting some nihilistic Black Metal with cavernous vocals, flies in a jar guitar sound and a pots and pans sounding drum kit…how wrong was I!


Lantern hail from Finland and play a crushing style of Swedish style Death Metal with a nod to the Old School but still sounding fresh and modern. When i noticed this was on Dark Descent records I was looking forward to it even more as they do have a knack for putting out good, quality bands and Lantern fit well into their roster.


Over the 39 minutes we are treated to some great riffage and dare I say catchy songs which flow seamlessly.


Well worth parting with your hard earned cash and blowing your eardrums out to.
