Despite the jump to a much bigger label, Vetis Monarch and co. have stuck to their guns and continue to play thrash tinged, occult black/death metal in their signature style, however, they HAVE cleaned up the production a lot on this album, which unfortunately sacrifices some of the evil atmosphere that made their first two albums great.
Thrashy riffs, dark melodies, load-blowing solos, top-notch musicianship and eerie atmospherics are the main ingredients you can expect in a typical Weapon song and, thankfully, they haven't changed the formula, leaving us with some killer songs that stand up well enough against anything the band has previously released. Highlights include "The First Witnesses of Lucifer", "Vanguard of the Morning Star", "Liber Lilith" and "Shahenshah".
The unnecessary change of production techniques maybe disappoint if you worshiped ""Drakonian Paradigm" and "From the Devil's Tomb", but. didn't bother me too much and "Embers and Revelations" is still a fine addition to Weapon's catalog and a worthy follow-up to "From the Devil's Tomb".
