L' ÂME IMMORTELLE: "Auf
deinen Schwingen" l'ame
review by Salvo "Lovedeath" Russo____
new L’Âme Immortelle cd confirms the new attitude of the band that
nowadays can be considered a pure gothic rock band!.
‘ve already noticed this change of direction in the previous album;
This new cd is a great one that confirms the attitude of the band to
join the depth of gothic rock and deep sensation that are the
characteristic of the band! Nowadays the band is formed by Sonja
Kraushofer and Thomas
Rainer after that Hannes left the band in
like the way they “feel” their songs…It’s evident that they have
found their own way, that is inspired to the famous
gothic rock bands, but with an unmistakable personal touch that comes
from their past into the electro-goth-dark ambient! It’s important to
underline the great work concerning arrangements; There are
“essential” arrangements….it’s a very good sound that is able to
give the magic touch to this album.
course there are great songs, but not only…there are also mediocre
compositions into this cd that anyhow I consider one of the best new
comer in this winter!
a most use of German concerning lyrics but also English;
Deinen Schwingen” is great!!! Deep, and sad…a perfect gothic rock
song that puts in evidence the quality of the singers!
is another good gothic hit in which Sonia sings in a great way….The
arrangement is very easy but at the same time very essential, and reminds
of classic gothic rock band!
of past into “Du Siehst Mich Nicht” in which Thomas releases a great
interpretation…this song to be a great eletro-goth hit!!! One of the
few songs that remind of this style.
avoidable “Nur Du” comes before the mediocre “Phönix” in which
the band tries to find a great groove but the song appears without
originality and also without the usual compositive approach.
is the pure essence of dark in according to their vision! An arrangement
very well made and a song in which Sonia confirms to be a great vocalist
also for a great way to give an interpretation to the song.
the time for a great ballad in which Sonia delivers another great
performance…the song is one of those you can’t forget… “Sometimes
Love Is Not Enough”
next one calls “Runaway” and it is sung by Thomas; It can’t but
remind of Negative (Joanne’s band), latest Zeraphine and in general it
gets that typical romantic metal mood that can’t but be appreciated by
all fans of this style.
next “Wohin” is another great song characterized by a great
drum-loop and very good arrangement in which female and male vocals are
able to create a very good refrain!
next song is another classic romantic metal hit sung by Sonia; it calls
“In Dein Leben”.
depth of “Last will” is characterized by a good arrangement, and
great Sonia’s vocal…there’s a touch of latest Gathering ....
Letzte Akt” is a dramatic song in which the Sonia and Thomas are
perfectly at their leisure to create a great personal gothic song that
seems to remind contemporaneously to Lacrimosa and Oomph.
bonus tracks are 3:
“ Bis Ans Ende Der Zeit” is a
mediocre song ….but, fortunately, there’s “Dying Day” that
already known single “Dein Herz”closes this cd: it has been released
before this full length and it’s a good presentation for the album.
