review by Gianrichy "Richy" Giamboi ___
After seven (yes, seven!!) years
Hollenthon publishes the successor to „With Vilest Of Worms To
Dwell“!! A really long time for such an innovative and interesting
project as the Austrian group again shows to be!
music of Hollenthon is so hard to describe, as the listener has to
plunge in it to catch the effective deepness and power of the songs.
Every single song ever composed by Hollenthon has its own face and
character, the common attributes are the bombastic and multiethnic and
multicultural elements recurring in the tracks.
choirs and countless to the metal gender unusual instruments bring an
unknown freshness creating an unexpected monumentality. Its hard to say
which album is better or which song is more catchy, as every single
composition is really different to the other in order to make preference
depending from individual taste and mood of the fans.
my opinion this is the path that Therion should also have taken some
years ago! Hollenthon don’t depend as much onto classical
compositions, even if these are quite often perceptible. But using those
already named multicultural elements with the rudeness and roughness of
their early days, they manage to create so many different sound
universes without loosing their way and making everything really
must say, “Opus Magnum” has confirmed the compository skills of
Hollenthon in every imaginable way, remaining at the usual highest
standards! Nowadays an exception in the Metal gender!!
