Ever since their inception in 2002, Taiwanese extreme metal group Anthelion, has stood out in the Asian extreme music scene. With their dark musical vista approach to metal, they have conjured a sound that is a unique mix of extreme, melodic black metal with melancholic orchestral elements.
Their debut album, Bloodshed Rebefallen , was recorded and mixed at Studio Fredman in Sweden. Since its release in 2007, the album has gained high critical acclaim among peers. Their intense live performances have also captured the attention of fans in extreme metal circles. Some have compared the band with Dimmu Borgir, while others have referenced bands like Behemoth and Cradle of Filth.
After the release of the EP Manjusak (2010), the band continues to evolve in huge steps, honing and transforming their sound and songwriting skills into highly original and cinematic dark musical soundscapes. An example of this can be heard on their new album, “Obsidian Plume”. With a more aggressive and dark melodic black metal sound, laden with haunting melancholic orchestra, “Obsidian Plum” is ready to bring the band closer to perfection within their genre.”
