    The songwriting has matured, and the arrangements are more measured, but this hasn't reduced the band's ability to thrash hard and thrash well.

    On the album as a whole, the guitar riffs are what stand out the most from the thrashing drums and growling vocals.

    An even rougher, uglier, and just plain heavier Hull.

    Beyond the Lightless Sky doesn't meet recent high-water marks set by the Body, Rwake, Baroness, or Thou, but it does seem like the next stepping-stone for Hull.

    Lightless Sky's monochromatic metal erosion could use a tonal infusion, but the vocal excoriation of "False Priest" testifies these brutal ruins.
