AllMusic Review by

The second album by Vesania is a quasi-concept album about vaguely religious themes that are barked out in the usual Cookie Monster "death growl" voice. Nothing much new at all, in other words. Musically, things are vaguely more interesting, with some symphonic metal flourishes in brief instrumental tracks like "Lumen Clamosum" and a better than average production and mixing job that highlights the high level of technical mastery among the players. Still, even then there's pretentious wheezes like the 26-minute final track, "Inlustra Nigror," which is just 25 minutes of silence and a minute's worth of droning guitar harmonics at the end. God the Lux is more inconsequential than it is actually bad -- again, technically, it's quite well-done -- but it's hard to imagine anyone outside of the most hardcore symphonic metal heads going for it.
