Junius - Days Of The Fallen Sun (2014)

Having released two captivating full-length albums (not counting their first LP combo of shorter recordings) already, now Junius present an easily digested, if curiously constructed, 25-minute EP. The first two songs The Time of Perfect Virtue and A Day Dark With Night were previously published on splits from 2010 and 2011, respectively. Each of the EPs four songs pairs with an introductory track that occupies between 30 and 60 seconds, each of which could, frankly, have been rolled into the runtime of the song it orbits or discarded altogether. I love the amorphous connective tissue that binds albums like Tools Aenima and dredgs The Pariah, The Parrot, The Delusion, but I have little patience for the vaguely topical packing peanuts that pad out this EP.

But now that the pet peeves are out of the way and they truly are minor annoyances its time to clarify what makes Days of the Fallen Sun amazing. Just four succinct tracks (between 3 ½ minutes and 7 ½ minutes at the extremes) lend the EP a focused tenacity of purpose that is quickly grasped and enjoyed. The songwriting on display follows resonant, intuitive pathways that nonetheless harbor idiosyncratic choices and interpermeating layers that suggest blissful sinking and forceful buoyancy simultaneously. There is a glorious tension/release partnership between verses and chorus in The Time of Perfect Virtue. A Day Dark With Night rides a winding river of percussive rapids, with occasional lulls in speed and volume only to plunge again into roiling spray. The true metal anthem arrives by way of Battle in the Sky, which could not have been better named. The song bristles chaotically, opening for razor melodies but also introducing the EPs only vocal violence. Forgiving the Cleansing Meteor one of the truly great song titles in the history of song titles sounds like your favorite post-metal superheroes enlisting a superior vocalist/lyricist to spin golden moments out of those eternal crescendos, imbuing with true significance what were once only a means to an end.

A picky listener might wish a lighter finger on the choral synth keys, but a more sympathetic audience might prefer that addition as a pleasing sonic throughline. Whatever small faults Days of the Fallen Sun may have, it remains a strong work by a deserving band. Highly recommended for the discerning ear-claw.
