Disc 2 – Act Two: Triumph
1. From The Abyss
Beautality are a refreshing band playing atmospheric metal music that melts down genres and raises something new, something amorphous. There are seeds of black metal, post-metal ambience delivered with the throbbing doom vibe – it always leaves something to the imagination. There’s a lot here that happens at its own pace, just like life. You just have to sit back and learn to absorb the intricacies, lessons and complexities that Beautality deliver oh-so-smoothly. This is an ambitious effort involving two discs to convey a beautiful message about redemption – a tale of torment and triumph indeed.
Originally planned to be released as an EP, the vision and scope far outgrew it’s inception and became an incredibly ambitious concept album depicting the emotional intensity and limits of the mind and astral plane collectively.
(The song) Unreality is an epic almost 20-minute aural trip that’s as melodic as it is savage.
Beautality manage to create a gloomy and sorrowful sound that rides on a wave of awesome riffs, keeping the listeners banging their heads and pumping their fists even through moments of intense grief and primal anguish.
Even the band’s name signals their intent to dissolve genre boundaries and express ideas through a hybrid of moods, atmospheres, and styles, and that mission is reflected in the songs they’ve created.
