Ellipsism is the sense of sadness and melancholy that accompanies intimations of one’s own mortality, the quiet heartbreak that comes with the realisation of all the futures you will never see. It’s also the perfect title for the full length debut album from Sheffield blackened post metal sorcerers of sorrow, BA’AL.
This is an album that will swallow you, engulfing you in the fear-tinged sadness whose name it bears. At times raging fiercely at the futility of the human condition at others, simply desolate…Ellipsism is a powerful maelstrom of dark emotion, touched with moments of remarkable beauty, that will leave no listener unaffected.
