REMASTERED REISSUE 2019! Comes as 8-panel matte laminated digipak, pit-art CD, limited to 300 copies
The alliance of CASUS BELLI MUSICA and BEVERINA proudly presents a remastered re-release of the outstanding debut album “Restoration” by AMIENSUS (Progressive Atmospheric Black, USA)! The album saw the light in the end of 2012, and after 6 years, it achieved its deeper and richer sound with a wide dynamic range as a result of remastering. The album will not leave you indifferent, and this deluxe 8-panel matte digipack and pit-art decorated CD limited to 300 copies, will rightfully take its place in any collection.
The well-respected music portal NO CLEAN SINGING said about the album the following: “An unusual and unexpected delight, Restoration is a fine addition to the growing pantheon of American black metal – a style that I think has truly found its own identity, wearing its heart on its sleeve without regard for the judgmental restrictions of the established orthodoxy – and will no doubt appeal to fans of Agalloch, Oak Pantheon, and Woods of Ypres. Yet its gloomy light and shrouded divinity should also find a home in the hearts of those with a love of the more emotive side of In Mourning and Swallow The Sun, to whose sound much of Restoration is a distant cousin.
Ostensibly a melodic, subtly progressive black metal act, with more than a touch of the earthen, resilient power of Drudkh, there’s definitely a dark beauty and pronounced gothic streak to be found on the record – particularly with the abundance of soaring, bleakly emotive clean vocals – which showcase a massive amount of potential and a laudable level of ambition and creativity from the Minnesotan five-piece.”
