Typically, when you review an album, you want to find some kind of unifying thread that ties the listening experience together. If there is one on I Die Smiling, it’s difficult to find. The colors it uses — black metal, drone, doom, post-rock, noise rock — are all familiar, but they’re blended in surprising ways. “Mr. Yawning Infinity Chasm – SuperInfinity” alternates between a verse that could have come from a recent Today is the Day record and a chorus that sounds like a lost riff from Leviathan’s Massive Conspiracy Against All Life. I’ve heard bands with a Today is the Day influence, and I’ve heard people imitate Leviathan, but never at the same time. Then, effectively out of nowhere, the song breaks into a major-key sludge riff. As you listen to more and more metal albums, it becomes exponentially more difficult for them to surprise you. Delivering surprises, even to jaded listeners, is no object for this band.
