Fall Of Stasis is a Canadian black folk band led by a female singer. Since 2017, it has produced a demo soberly titled "Demo" that allowed it to showcase its particular musical universe. Their debut album, "The Chronophagist", is a bombshell, striking the right balance between black metal rage and enchanting passages, melodic folk intonations, pure acoustic sounds, searching orchestrations and violent jolts.

The album starts with soft and haunting notes on a ternary rhythm ('Wilted Forests'). Continuing in the softness, 'Fall Of Stasis' gathers some harpsichord notes worthy of Emperor, but already the fierce face is revealed with powerful riffs and an aggressive voice. Baal Arise' intensifies the heaviness with crushing blasts while clean vocals support the Scar Symmetry-like grunt. On 'Twilight Carnival', a beautiful bouncing acoustic guitar precedes the ultimate violence on the edge of raw black metal. The first melody dissolves in a tempestuous sea of guitars, each more violent than the other. Finally, the beginning of 'The Chronophagist' is based on amazing ethnic percussions, before the frantic cavalcades give way to a crystalline piano, completing this idyllic picture.

For a first album, "The Chronophagist" is impressive of maturity and control. The strength of the record is to propose sweet and endearing melodies, a dark violence and an impressive mastery of the vocals. Fall Of Stasis releases this superb muscular and sensual album, which transcends the genres. A surprising, disturbing and adventurous record.

OTHER REVIEWS
KALLE WALLNER: Voices (2022)
PROGRESSIVE ROCK - Despite pleasant compositions, "Voices" lacks too much originality and surprises to really seduce.
MIDNIGHT OIL: Resist (2022)
ROCK - Without reaching the heights of their discography, "Resist" is a perfect ending for Midnight Oil, iconic band of the 80s and 90s.
