Ascending into Shimmering Darkness

Black Bow Records

May 1, 2018

Album Review by Allyson Kingsley Music Journalist with Boston Rock Radio



From the northern UK, a respectable output of doom metal is delivered by Coltsblood. The trio is releasing Ascending Into Shimmering Darkness via Candlelight Records. The album was produced by Chris Fielding (Winterfylleth, Primordial, Napalm Death) at the infamous Skyhammer Studio and mastered by Greg Chandler (Priory Recording Studios, Esoteric). The musicians are John McNulty (bass,vocals), Jemma McNulty (guitar) and Jay Plested (drums).  They have performed at Roadburn Festival, North of the Wall, Doom Over London and the Northern Discomfort Festival.


We step into heavy melancholic territory with the sinister feeling on the track “Ascending Into Shimmering Darkness,” a perfectly done template of the genre. “ The Legend of Abhartach” is a song of the early legend of an evil magician dwarf who escaped from the grave and terrorized the country and some say drank the blood of his subjects. It is certainly haunting and eerie] after having read the legend and giving it a listen again.


Doom metal is a tough genre to love but if you close your eyes and listen to the nuances and create the dark atmosphere in your imagination, you may grow an affection for it.
