Oh my God
! I couldn't have thought that someday, I would head Symphonic Black Metal
like this! This is how should it be!
My friend suggested me to listen to them. I was going to be awake all night long in the train, so I needed something to listen to. It was about 2:30 A.M. when I turned my player on. After 5 minutes I was ready to turn it off, because I was so scared, that I never could even imagine. I didn't turn it off. It was so beutiful, so addicting, and so brutal... That
was why I didn't sleep that night.
The main thing in their music is that they use several rhythms, several melodies, several vocals in one song. For example: 'A Strange Presence Near
The Woods', starts with drums, making brutality, guitars along with basses, making cut and beautiful riffs and keyboards, which is main thing in their music. It makes melodies of Dutch medieval folk, which makes me feel, that I am there and see everything what is happening, this is when I can travel through time. In this song, music changes many times, as the vocal does. It starts with rasps, growling at the end, then is part, when vocal goes whispering. And
in the end, this song ends as it started, brutally and energetically.
The main thing in this album, as was said above, are the keyboards. They make atmophere of everything, which is told there.
I love their lyrics. The whole album is about one story of the ghost in the forest of Lammendam
I love, when the last track, 'La Malédiction de la Dame Blanche' ends, that part, when piano playes one melody for a while, and after about 20 seconds, guitars accompany it.
Really powerful album, if you still haven't listened to it yet, think that you are losing 43 minutes of your life.
