In the bleak realm of British metal, Leeds-based Envoys come as a nice surprise. Their debut,Violescent, is a quality slab of Post Metal al a Pelican, featuring swirling masses of riffs that quickly leads to periods of quiet reflection, before thundering in again with the heavy stuff.
There’s no one stand out track on this album, rather they all come together to create a rich record full of twists and turns. An assured and impressive debut album, and well worth a listen.
