Rock and metal are awash with stories of triumph to tragedy in the blink of an eye, we read about them endlessly, but tragedy to triumph is often so sorely overlooked and Elliott’s Keep are one of these bands as the Texan’s deliver their fifth album ‘Vulnerant Omnes’.

                Fans of Elliott’s Keep will already know what to expect here with ‘Vulnerant Omnes’, these Texans are really good at one thing and that is blending epic doom metal with progressive and death elements to create something that interesting and enjoyable. When it comes to musicianship, Elliott’s Keep are masters of their craft; through some pretty cool basslines they deliver rousing heavy metal through tracks such as ‘White Wolf’ ‘Omnis Pretium’ and ‘Laughter of the Gods’ which drive with all the power of Solitude Aeturnus, Wheel and Dantesco, whilst also touching base with Candlemass and even Visigoth. However, ‘Vulnerant Omnes’ does have an odd mix to it, and it does take a few listens to get used to, but in all honesty, once this album clicks, it is a beast which forces the listener to continue listening again and again.

                ‘Vulnerant Omnes’ may not be instantly likeable, but it is a superb grower, it delivers itself perfectly and any fan of epic doom with just enough je ne sais quoi to make it different then this latest release from Elliott’s Keep is well… a keeper.
