With this being their newest material since their last full length release in May of 2015, post-metal outfit Sisters of… return with their dark and atmospheric sound that they have showcased in the past. The duo, consisting of Aaron Coker and Chris Clark, have a very unique style that combines elements of post-rock and progressive metal to form a haunting tone. Their last record, The Serpent, the Angel, and the Adversary, Sisters of… established an interesting style that sounded like a more orchestral version of Deafheaven and mixed it’s soft and heavy moments quite nicely. In their latest track “Adulescentia” Sisters of… have chosen to follow the similar format that has gained them some attention with previous releases, but the song is also going in a bit of a different direction than what they’ve shown before.
“Adulescentia” is noticeably less heavy than their prior release but that’s what makes it an interesting listen. Diving even further into their post-rock elements, Sisters of… devised a track that sounds somewhat like if Godspeed You! Black Emperor featured more metal characteristics. With a surprisingly soothing tone, the entirely instrumental track is a different step for the band but it makes for unique guesses as to what their next project is going to turn out like. “Adulescentia” builds up to a soaring climax that feels truly cinematic and fades away with a closing aura that is sure to stick in your mind.
This track is definitely an attention grabber and it makes for an exciting prediction towards what the next album from Sisters of… is going to sound like. Whether the rest of the record features similar patterns to this track or if this is only a snippet towards a possible wide range of styles that we could see, “Adulescentia” is able to build up a justified amount of curiosity for their next release.
