Though usually I'm trying to be mean with my 5-star-ratings I think this one fully deserves it. This song is an absolute masterpiece, one of the best in the whole metal genre if you ask me. The way it opens, so dramatically well, actually I would say that that is one of the characteristics of this band, the dramatically, emotional cuasi operatic feel this band has is what makes them stand aside from the rest of the Black, Death, or Gothic metal scene.
Then the crescendo, and when finally the vocals drop in, then you have one of the best moments in metal history my friends. But after that, no track, so song comes remotely close to it. Of course, they are not exactly alike, but the sound. After saying this reader can hesitate if getting this might be a good idea. It is a very original piece of work, and you might not agree with me, many before me didn't. Dual vocals come in as the song speeds up.
There is a female soprano vocal melody before it gets pastoral again with violin like intro. There is some mind bending guitar as well as some wondrous vocals from Synne. She can sing so beautifuly and yet sound so tortured at the same time. The throbbing bass is great and so is the heaviness 14 minutes in.
This song somehow can draw out my emotions. It slows down 80 seconds in before accelerating again with screaming guitar, upfront bass and pounding drums. This contrast continues from atmospheric to very powerful. Nice drumming on this one as well.
Some keys in this one as the melody speeds up. The sound becomes punishingly heavy as bass and drums lead the way 6 minutes in. The sound continues to be crushing with some scorching guitar solos. Great song! The final suite "Omnio? It starts with "Omnio? More great guitar to follow and unearthly vocals. The sound 9 minutes in is ecstacy to my ears. More incredible bass. Drums and guitar follow at a slow pace but they start to build as the spacey soundscape continues!
Holy crap! Male vocals and heavy riffs follow. Things quiet down as reserved male vocals are joined by spacey synths. Some scorching guitar as sound speeds up to the end of the song. What a ride! Let's do it again! I confess to have a rooted interest in Norwegian music as my family history goes way back to Norway via Scotland. And I will say again, the music from this album will draw out of your heart and soul things you may not have felt in a long time. An emotional masterpiece! The mood is mostly dark, spacey, and quite hypnotic.
The 15 minute opener starts with lovely yet tense strings that lead into the first of many monster chordal assaults, some slow and lumbering, some chugging at maniacal speeds. There are nice transitions that do not sound forced. Occasionally the heavy rock stops and you move into calm waters where acoustic guitars and strings clear the air-these moments are very nice and provide a well rounded experience.
And the melodies in these quiet portions are very beautiful. This is really a great song that is accessible to all prog fans, not just prog-metal fans. They love to layer the guitars and let them twirl over each other which gives the album a unique sound-very powerful.
The drumming is plenty competent but I agree with another reviewer who noted that the mix seems a bit strange on the drums. This track is OK but probably the least interesting and most predictable to me. Next comes "Weeping Willow" which continues the vibrant guitars while the early vocals are softly delivered over piano and are hard to understand.
The song picks up speed to a good clip and coasts until the 7 minute mark when it gets better with a softer prelude to a nice guitar solo. The long title track is last and begins with a spacey sequence giving way to acoustics and strings again. This song is another stunner on par with the opener: lots of movement, lots of changes, passionate vocals, interesting chord changes, beautiful lead work, creepy psych passages.
What a great closer!. So in summary this album is bookended by two tracks that are just absolute stunners, and together they comprise most of the album. I can easily recommend the album on the strength of those two songs. However I believe that "Flesh" and "Willow" are well below the quality of those two songs.
They do not sustain their length and are less interesting and far less adventurous. The short breather "Kairos" is somewhere in between.
