Lateless – “Bless from the Heaven” EP (2011)


Independent Release

Review by Tony Cannella

After two EP’s and a full-length, the Russian Gothic Metal band Lateless has returned with a new 4-song, 16-minute EP titled, “Bless from the Heaven”. The band returns with a more hungry sound, better production and songs that are just plain killer. The heavy opener “Grief and Ashes” is a good first song, with some great vocals from Tatiana and some cool, heavy guitar. “Of Your Memory” is next and starts off with a slower tempo, before the band joins in all guns blazing. “Secret Garden” is probably my favorite track as Tatiana turns in another amazing vocal performance; this song also displays the bands ability to write a great big melodic song. “Bless From Heaven” is a great closer that is just a pounding heavy song with a straight forward and steady guitar riff. When you compare “Bless from the Heaven” with their 2009 debut EP, you really see how far Lateless has come in a few short years. Alas, at only 16-minutes long, “Bless from the Heaven” is all too short, but if this is where Lateless is headed musically speaking, than I anxiously await their next full-length. Soon please.

Rating – 88/100
