PANTHEON - I - THE WANDERER AND HIS SHDAOW - CANDLELIGHT  
With two former 1349 members within its ranks and a cover painting derivative of the old Slayer artworks there would be justifiable high hopes for these relative newcomers from Norway. Much of the expectation for cold and cruel black metal with nefarious vocals is justified. Yet, there is a clear schizophrenic streak at work on The Wanderer And His Shadow. The album’s opener Origin Of Sin is a perfect early example with its halfway blasting/ethereal fast-slow-fast jerkiness. It is not immediately obvious whether with an album title such as this the release is a concept with a unifying story-line, but the interchange of swift black metal like 1349 with Borknagar-like quizziness and the odd clean vocals and offending pop instrumentation injection is a feature of these particular Norwegians. The title track bears the burden of a slow progression; Coming To An End is almost progressive, while Where Angels Burn (with a great Tom Warrior-esque grunt to boot) is clearly assaultive despite what should be a cello amidst the onslaught. Most of the material is a conscious effort in-between however. - Ali “The Metallian”
