When you scramble for answers / all you’ll find is wings / and pristine specimens…
So begins “Hylesia Mymex,” the standout fifth track from one-man black metal project Glass Shrine’s debut full-length Lapidary . Striking in its imagery, the lyric perfectly illustrates what D.L., the artist behind Glass Shrine, means when he says that he seeks “to capture the beauty in ferocity with my music, to bring out something ornate and regal from a style of music known for its venom. The project and song names, lyrics and artwork are all deliberately and delicately crafted around this goal.” Every facet of the album evinces the care that went into its crafting: the tremolo-and-blast driven intensity stands in stark contrast to the pastel-hued cover and song titles that reference precious gems and species of butterflies, and the highly poetic lyrics infuse the musical savagery with more than a touch of the sublime. - Invisible Oranges
