Reviewer: David Loveless
This is a re-release of Lascar's 2016 debut album, Absence, and includes their 2015 demo called Depths. Hailing from Chile, Lascar plays a depressive style of Post black metal with buzzing guitars in the style of Xasthur. There is also quite a bit more blast beats on this release than your typical post black metal album. The production/mix is a little muddy but that's atypical of this genre. Although there are no stand-out tracks, and nothing new or inventive on this release, it is still a pretty good album and I recommend it for fans of post black metal giants, Alcest.
