Devouring Radiant Light is a record that flirts with thrash yet revels in blackened darkness, fully delivering on the proof of concept exhibited on 2016’s The Apothic Gloom EP. This is thrashy black metal as opposed to blackened thrash metal, and from second wave iciness (“Temple of the Sun”) to atmo-black catharsis (“Fen of Shadows”), Skeletonwitch leaves few genre sub-chambers unexplored. Combined with ambitious compositional excursions, these pieces stun me time and time again; the multiple modes of songwriting, ranging from classic A-B-A-B structuring to freeform exploration exhibited in more ambitious tracks such as “The Vault,” craft a vibrant and diverse track selection, while painterly touches — such as the deliberate, impactful pause executed as the title track cycles from its bombastic chorus back to its simple, stomping verse — enhance the sense of structural confidence. In terms of sheer sonic scope, DRL is undoubtedly one of this year’s most impressive records.
