Year Of No Light

Isis is still one of the first bands one thinks of when describing this sort of ambient-to-crushing-chords, atmospheric experimental hardcore-laced doom, but even as they themselves are straying from the style, a number of bands are right behind them to keep the genre growing. Year Of No Light rank with Overmars as the top French acts in the field, clearly closer to Isis than they are to, say, Neurosis, and the same sort of accolades given to Overmars and others might apply here -- these bands aren't clones of each other, but they are cut from a similar cloth, and they all do a pretty impressive job of maintaining high quality in their works. Like the others, Year Of No Light might lose a few points only because they're a few years behind being true innovators, but they deserve credit for an impressive album nonetheless.

Recent album: Consolamentum, released on July 2, 2021.
