There’s a sense of perpetual motion to And Then There Were None, the second album by Danish melodeath crew LIVLØS. Whether blasting full speed ahead, as on the ripping “Serpentine Supremacy,” or dropping into the nasty, menacing stomp of a song like album closer “The Purest Black,” the band marches ever forward, grinding whatever is in their path to dust.
Melodic death metal doesn’t always anchor its glossy riffs in this kind of primordial aggression, but LIVLØS dole out the hooks and the punishment in equal measure on And Then There Were None. The album also bears a subtler vein of elegance, an undercurrent tipped off by the gorgeous Mariusz Lewandowski cover art. It’s a deeply satisfying alchemy that LIVLØS have achieved here, and Decibel is stoked to be able to exclusively share And Then There Were None in its entirety a day before its official release via Napalm Records. Listen to the album below, and read a brief statement on it from the band:
“We’re very excited to finally share our new album to the world, and even more excited to share it through Decibel, Enjoy!”
