Frequency Of Butterfly Wings
The Weight Of Existence
Released: 2014, Unsigned
Reviewer: Metal-Rules.com UK Team
"The Weight Of Existence" is the new EP by Iranian doom-mongers Frequency Of Butterfly Wings, an aching, mournful opus full of sorrowful melody and ennui.
Opener "When The Last Light Is Gone" is a standard intro track which serves to prepare you for the harrowing journey ahead. It is followed by "Unbounded", a song of stark beauty and melancholy. It is followed by "Equal To My Ruin", a mild disappointment by comparison, with it's disjointed riffing; an uninspiring plodder. The fourth track "Re-Living" follows much the same path, and does not live up to the EPs earlier promise. Fortunately the closing track "Forevermore" is superb, a warped masterpiece blissful misery, with Ashkan Moosavi's wounded croon giving way to acid throated bellowing.
"The Weight Of Existence" is a decent slab of Doom/Death; at times it is frustrating, but worth it if you persevere.
