Be’lakor – Of Breath and Bone

Ever since the release in 2009 of their widely applauded sophomore album, Stone’s Reach, Melbourne’s Be’lakor have been heralded alongside the likes of Insomnium and Omnium Gatherum as being at the forefront of the modern melodic death metal movement. However, while it is arguable that some of their contemporaries have stagnated over recent releases, Be’lakor have, with their third album, reinvigorated a genre seemingly bereft of inspiration. Entitled Of Breath and Bone, the album is 57 minutes of epic melodeath that not only bristles with pomp and grandeur, but is also intensely atmospheric, and proves Be’lakor to be a band now well and truly at the peak of their powers.
