review by Salvo "Lovedeath" Russo____
Involved into dramatic atmospheres.
album is the result of years of experiences of E. Gerassimos that keeps on the way of atmospheric metal by an album that
wil not disappoint you under the emotional aspect which is the first
element to be taken in consideration for the Sicilian artist that shows
us a great ability to create sad and melancholic suites that will be the
joy of all those who like to be involved into dramatic and suffering
the initial “Prayer For A Memory”…a kind of folk intro…“The Wave” mixes doom metal with atmospheric
gothic , the sporadic sung is in growl…I underline the
great work made by the arrangements that give value to the essence of
music…piano, synth are well mixed…but I have to admit that the problem
for this work is the drum machine, which penalizes the final result…
song is the continuation of the previous one….the atmospheres are
always full of sadness, and it’s impossible not to be bewitched
listening to “Goodbye” that mixes dark and ambient with an
Quite Inside The Storm” goes to black-death metal with an incredible
acceleration that is part of an emotive sensation…it’s another good
throne” reminds me of Empyrium
(german band) or the debut Lacrimas Profundere album…it’s
difficult to make comparisions….there’s a touch of folk into the sad
ambient of the music….
album is closed by a bonus track that is called “Dancing the
dark”…in my opinion not up to task comparing to the others songs.
the whole, this album confirms the quality of this artist that is able to
create good songs…the only negative aspect is the production that is almost sufficient, and the drum machine…but the album is good…and it
is worthy of consideration of all those who like this style.
