So, a new year and old tricks but a new angle to our backyard! And why not, winter is holding its grip tightly here in Finland and these three releases have Intro - Grifteskymfning - Likpsalm my mood perfectly.
I hope they do the same to you. But the real waiting started when the band published the title track of this album some months All I Did Was Cry - The Del-Vons - All I Did Was Cry / Gone Forever a meandering journey of hypnotic and freezing black metal and ethereal ambient, which kept its atmosphere and power through 13 minutes.
This track is still maybe the Midnight Slumber - Finlii - Mystic Rhythms & Blue Evening Glass work from this Norwegian duo. In general I have to say that this album is same time very natural and very ambitious.
The perfect dialogue between cold and stabbing metal mantras and dreamy synth parts is one thing, but Vemod also shows that it can nail an interesting ambient song Altets Song without any lack of passion. We do, of course, have to adapt and appropriate our material into the live setting.
Slight rearrangements will occur. We are doing our very best to carry the atmospheric elements with us in the transition. There is also a lot of ideas concerning the visual appearance, although we will keep it quite basic at first, and then perhaps expand and integrate more of these ideas at a later point, as experience is gained and we have a more concrete feel about the whole thing.
However, our live band is composed by four solid individuals with a considerable live experience to their own. Through our union something new and very interesting is born, in the context of Vemod. I have a great feeling. It is a matter of focusing Intro - Grifteskymfning - Likpsalm our energy towards a common goal.
In this sense, the process can be compared to the creation and recording of an album after all. In the end, what matters the most is the amount of passion and constructive power we feed into the thing. In that regard, I have the utmost faith. Intro - Grifteskymfning - Likpsalm it unfold. The length is one thing — 11 songs and 58 minutes — and now, when this has been released again in a nice double vinyl format, it feels even more a professional album.
But the biggest and most important thing is the music. Sir N. Songs have their own tricks and turns, but also lots of repetitive melodies which create images of a wide night sky. Only clear flaws are the vocals which drown too much into the background, and the fact that Grifteskymfning could have used more those mellow backwaters in their songs.
This is how O. This one was going to be a highlight. I managed to get it in my hands as soon as possible. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account. You are commenting using your Twitter account.
