AllMusic Review by

Feathers & Flesh is the sixth full-length by Swedish melodic death metal outfit Avatar. It's a concept album whose narrative subject is an owl who hates daylight and decides to enlist other animals in waging war against nature itself in order to keep the sun from rising. Produced by Sylvia Massey, the story unfolds via a bombastic, nearly prog metal attack by the band and the energetic vocals of Johannes Eckerström, who balances characters and bookmarks the tale with clean and dirty vocals.
