Review: Junius – Eternal Rituals for the Accretion of Light

It is admittedly difficult for me to be objective when reviewing Junius, they are my favorite band, but I think it is undeniable that Eternal Rituals for the Accretion of Light is an incredible record that far exceeds any expectations, and will easily be one of the best releases of 2017.

Despite the departure of founding members and a three-year absence, Joseph E. Martinez and Dana Filloon have returned and delivered a record that both equals and transcends their already highly impressive catalog, and takes the band to a whole new level.

Recorded with longtime friends and recording engineers Will Benoit (Constants) & Daryl Rabidoux (The Cancer Conspiracy) of Radar Recording in CT, mixed by Benoit, and released by Prosthetic Records, Junius has crafted a record that is massive in depth, sound, and has a maturity and vastness that makes it their best work to date.

Not only does Eternal Rituals for the Accretion of Light have the signature heavy, dark, melodic, and epic Junius sound, the record also goes in some surprising new directions with songs like “Telepaths & Pyramids,” and “Masquerade in Veils,”that really pay off big.

Eternal Rituals for the Accretion of Light is an astounding achievement in that Junius has succeeded at something many other great bands have failed at: maintaining everything about their sound that defines them, while at the same time evolving, trying new things, going in directions not expected, and succeeding at it.
