Disillusion
Back to the Times of Splendor (Metal Blade)

By: Mike SOS

Disillusion is a German trio whose debut full-length release may only be six tracks, but it clocks in at nearly an hour's worth of metal. Back to the Times of Splendor is an epic offering whose musical directions are vast, as the opener "And The Mirror Cracked" over the course of eight minutes moves from brutal metal to beautiful melodies and back once again to the brutal without sacrificing the song's hook. Featuring stealthy guitar work, an overall leaning towards the progressive, and a stunning array of technical savvy, Disillusion has joined the savage and the sublime, creating the type of metal that fans of Opeth, Dream Theater, and Iron Maiden will undoubtedly clamor over.
