Crafteon
Cosmic Reawakening
Company: Independent
Release: 2017
Genre: Black
Reviewer: Greg Watson
Published: 10/3/2017

Lovecraftian influenced metal that lends promise to the band's future
COMMENTS:
Crafteon's debut release, 'Cosmic Reawakening', is obviously paying homage to H.P. Lovecraft's titular entity that is the basis for HPL's most well known creation. The lyrics to the songs, all titles of Lovecraft stories, are kept as true to the story as possible. Musically, the album is a mix of power and black metal, with the black metal being a little on the safe side. "The Colour Out of Space" is my favorite track on the album as it melds the two styles perfectly. With a little polish and evolution, Crafteon will definitely be a metal band to remember as they continue to evolve.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
H.P. Lovecraft, Strange Fiction, Early era Norwegian Black Metal
