Blackened sludge with numerous influences, ranging from post-rock to metalcore. It sort of blends together easily, which is its main downside, but every other aspect is incredible.

Metal eu nunca gostei muito nem seria meu estilo preferido, mas é necessário separar os gostos e reconhecer que esse pequeno álbum mostrou muito deste estilo, com sua fúria e com toda a instrumentação bem coesas, nada aqui é simples demais e nada a ver com bandas que sempre lançam a mesma ... read more

Give these guys a PHD in metal for the amount of sub-genres they seamlessly traverse whilst knocking out banger after banger. Very impressive stuff.

Fav Track: Rot

I thought I was going to love this thing- Blackened Sludge Metal/Post-Metal? Sounds like right up my alley... but sadly, I was not too impressed with this thing. Although, I think the material here is fine, you find that as you tread through the album, you find that that's all it is: just "fine". There's nothing exactly innovative or significantly creative here. In all honesty, it simply sounds derivative and uninspired.

I'm also not sure if Conjurer really need to stretch half the ... read more

Excellent metal project. Conjurer uses a huge amount of dynamics in this album, with calm melodic lows to disgusting highs filled with dissonance and tempo changes. I love how this album just pulls you in and out of the intensity, making this a very unsettling listen. The songwriting is also excellent, with each verse reading like a poem or grand statement of some sorts, and it enhances the destructive feeling that the project has. A highlight for me was Rot, where I was blown away when ... read more

Sublime mix of the slow and methodical pace of sludge, with the atmosphere and the emotional intensity of black metal, with great instrumentation - a work of art

Conjurer are back with their second album (not counting collaborations), and I was excited to jump in. While sludge metal has not been one of my favorite metal sub-categories, I found a decent amount to enjoy on their debut, so this was still on my radar. The album opens a bit roughly though, as the stale riffs and muddy, low-quality vocals bog down the opener "It Dwells". Luckily, the record gets more exciting with cuts such as "Rot", as the energy picks up and the album ... read more

Some of the most generic metal of the year get one of the most generic scores I can give it. I really just don't like metal. That dose not mean I can't though. One of my top 5 albums of the year so far is a metal album. If you want to find some creative and fun metal, listen to "Tiktaalika" by The Charlie Griffith's.

Páthos has a bunch of great ideas that don’t necessarily fit together…
Conjurer took the COVID-19 pause to come together and record Páthos, their second full-length album, and first coming from the reliable Nuclear Blast label.

And yes, the label aptly describes Conjurer as “devastating” and “thrilling.” The band, a four piece out of the UK, is immensely creative - squishing riff after riff (and tempo change after tempo change) into each of ... read more

Without the loudmouth, there is some tolerable music in there. With Loudmouth, a Freakin' Disaster
