|The album opens with the song 'Daemons'.
could call it catchy for an opening of the album
and introduces you to the climate of 'Genesis'. The chorus includes half
Greek-half English lyrics
and it's a cool new idea.
I liked the changes between the 2 languages.
Second track is 'Lex Talionis' a fast black
metal song with the familiar melody the band has
shown in the last 3 albums. In the chorus part speed stops and the
song becomes slower.
Next song is 'Quintessence'. Starts with a
speech intro and kicks in after it with a cool riff.
Classic RC song which sounds like the 'Sleep Of The Angels' album.
features 'clean' vocals by Sakis, probably for the first time ever!
'Nightmare' is the next song. It's the
biggest in duration song of the album,it lasts 7 minutes.
Not quite a fast song, but it's interesting and the chorus is probably
it's best part, with 'clean' vocals once again and good melody in the
Next song is 'In Domine Sathana'.
with a nice guitar riff and then it speeds up. Slows down
after a while and speeds up again. Very dramatic song with multi-vocal
which creates a dark atmosphere. Some narration in the middle. The chorus
keeps being repeated all
the time and it stays in your mind. The best song of the album i have
heard so far. Brilliant.
'Release Me' is next. Strange intro and very
unusual for a RC song. But this doesn't last for too
long and the guitars kick in. Song becomes 'strange' again in the
middle, can't describe it but then
comes the chorus and gets better.
Next is 'The Call Of Aethyrs'. Fast black
metal speeds and imposing melodies in the background.
'Dying' opens with a good riff and it's another slow
song. It has changes
the vocals from gothic style to rotten black metal singing. A nice guitar
solo in the middle
which fits very well.
'Ad Noctis' has a chorus intro for about 1
minute and then kicks in with black metal speeds
and rotten vocals. A classic RC song once again which is in the style of
the previous album
'Khronos'. I heard some percussion in the
middle i think. In general it's a great dark song.
Ending track is 'Under The Name Of Legion'.
this is what i call an amazing, dark, atmospheric,
dramating song.A true jem of the album. It may not be a fast and furious
like some of the previous songs but the melodies played by the guitars
and the excellent vocals which
change moods are magnificent. No doubt this is the best song of the
In conclusion i can say that this album is more dark
and aggressive than its predecessor 'Khronos'.
The keyboards have done a very good job, the drums do lots of blast beats
and melody like we didn't hear it in the same way it was in the band's
middle period which ended with the 'Sleep Of The Angels' album.
It seems that they want to appeal more like a black metal band rather
than a gothic band they tried to become in their second phase.
So, they mix their black metal past with
melody, good production, some new elements and the best performance of the band so
far. The guitars and drums
seem to have improved a lot and it's a pleasant suprise. All in all it's
an album that all metal fans
