Lectoblix - The Night Shall Last Forever
Today, January 1st, 2017 marks two years since the release of, Lectoblix's, "The Night Shall Last Forever." Beginning with a series of lucid dreams, this release was crafted from raw emotion into a beautiful piece of artwork. "My music is a chronicling of a dreaming man's journey to wake up. His encoutners and experiences therein cause an inner war between staying and leaving. Will he make up his mind before time runs out?" , Diem Exuro says, describing the concept behind Lectoblix. The moment "The Taste of Triumph" fades in audibly, we're thrown relentlessly into the DSBM atmosphere that after just a minute grabs a hold of you by the sternum and tears the fibers of your heart. I hold this album very dear, and very personal; if any of you readers love atmosphere, this release has the ability to leave its listeners in a trance. This album has helped me through some very tough times over the past two years, by allowing me to escape from reality; offering another perspective. Every song on this release is so incredibly unique; each a bold statement. Something I found to be truly remarkable is each track's ability to consume you in its presence, but not let you float away into despair; rather it drives you forward in the way that you don't realize you're rocking your head back and forth. The concept alone is enough to draw you in, but by the time the track-list has hit, "The Night Shall Last Forever", and, "Midnight Tales" the music will have won your soul. Every chord, every progression, every note; I listen, and know in my heart that I've felt that pain. Like I had said before, this album is very dear and personal to me; as it's helped me through my own personal mental struggles. Some of you may take a glance at the album art, turn your noses up, and mock "Brony Metal" but the aggression that lies dormant within the atmosphere created by Lectoblix is far more than enough to change your perspective. This album truly is a masterpiece in itself, Diem Exuro surely is not selling anyone short with this release; it's not easy to find an album you can listen to on repeat for hours, and not want to change it. This album is that prized-possession. It's so complex, diverse, and the emotions could not be any clearer.
