about

“Symphonic black metal from the most grim of places – Florida. Let not the band’s sunny geography steer you away, for Once Offered the Greatest of Light is a raging beast. Full of blastbeats, majestic keys, blackened rasps, and neck-snapping riffs, Vitreous do leave quite a favorable impression once the disc ends. The melodies that the band weaves into their black metal are particularly enjoyable, memorable without weakening the overall tone. Despite the presence of the symphonic element, they also avoid coming off as goofy in its use (always a tricky one to balance). Fans of Dimmu Borgir or Old Man’s Child will love this, but worth a gander for any black metal aficionados.”
— Kyle McGinn, Dead Rhetoric
