New Review from Head-Banger Reviews!

https://headbangerreviews.wordpress.com ... CvzqqDLiGI

Quote:
The positive auras that permeate every minute of this 30-minute offering is so oddly infectious with themes the likes of which we could all use more of after the hardships we’ve been through with many of us still going through, but it’s all somehow with a fluctuating core of black metal that Vela Pulsar manages to deliver to us a performance that’s not only intense in areas, but downright mesmerizing in every other aspect as we see all three of these tracks bring forth something that we simply do not get often enough, and it’s with the talent behind it all in every department that only makes what Vela Pulsar has accomplished here all the more delicious.

Vela Pulsar release lyric video for "Reverence Of Being" on No Clean Singing, with a review!

https://www.nocleansinging.com/2021/08/ ... Dq1BngDLuk

Quote:
Like all of the tracks, this one is the kind of vivid sonic tapestry that reveals a host of experiences in narrative fashion. Even in the opening minutes you get a good sense of how dynamic and multi-faceted the changes will be.

At the start, the percussive sound of something like a broken heat pump becomes assimilated into the mesmerizing tones of symphonic strings and a glittering guitar harmony. When a pulsing bass and clattering drums join the frame, along with abrasive raking chords and vicious screams, the mood of the music changes again, becoming dismal and desolate. Jittery and quivering guitars and tumbling drums create tension and an increasing sense of despair, which magnifies through blasting drums, writhing fretwork, and venomous growls.

A distressing tremolo’d melody worms its way into your head, even though accompanied by the scathing vehemence of the vocals — and then a sad, ringing guitar provides a brief break before the music swells again, more stately but more downcast, providing the backdrop for a mesmerizing guitar solo. The drumming throughout the song is a vibrant and vital presence, and though it becomes frantic near the end, the chords ring out like a staggering funeral march. A scintillating guitar lead rises up, and leads the song to a wondrous celestial finale in which orchestral strings fashion a final sea of sorrow.
