Pandemonium Steve Unterpertinger. Prophecies in Blood Steve Unterpertinger. Into the Dust of Eden Steve Unterpertinger. Yeah, this is pretty much my favorite one from them.
They're one of my favorite bands It just seemed so corny and convoluted. It just seems like people use the Cradle comparison when they want to slam a band whose melodies seem overly "syrupy" among other reasons.
Just listened to a couple songs off that myspace page, and this sounds greatThis Message Edited On Great album cover, but seriously. Cannot belive I never heard these guys before.
That song is just a two minutes violin track Willie, you certainly have a great writing style that is clear and concise. Your reviews are enjoyable to read and this one is no different. I've heard a few tracks by these guys and they just didn't do it for me.
I will, however, check this album out in its entirety. I know. Yeah, I can see how some people might think that they're just kind of boring because there's not always a lot going on with the guitars and a lot of the songs on this album are mid-paced in speed I must say this is much better than the other album, Collateral Defect that I have.
I have faith now to check out their other stuff. Thats probably their best. I think this one is their Prophecies In Blood - Graveworm - As The Angels Reach The Beauty (CD, and then probably "Scourge of Malice", but Album) in Black" is close. I dont think any of Graveworm's albums are bad at all though. Review Summary: Graveworm's finest hour. Rank: for The melody of a cello, violins, and bag pipes fill the air, creating a sense of mourning, yet strangely uplifting at the same time.
After a few moments, the rolling sound of percussion fades in to complement the strings and bag pipes. Together they continue to create this feeling of loss, as if Prophecies In Blood - Graveworm - As The Angels Reach The Beauty (CD horribly wrong has just occurred. This description is from the beginning of the sophomore release by Graveworm called As Angels Reach the Beauty It would have only taken a few more seconds of listening to realize that this is no Mel Gibson movie soundtrack.
After a few moments of that mournful melody, the deep growls of vocalist Stefano Fiori suddenly come in over raging guitars and the sudden roll of double bass. All the while the original melodies from the violins, Album), cello, and bag pipes continue to play along side the riffs. That feeling of mourning and anger permeates throughout this entire album. Whereas on future releases Graveworm would turn to darker, more sinister sounding moods, on this one it radiates with sadness.
A lot of that has to do with an aspect of the band that they would move away from in future releases, the use of real stringed instruments and the larger use of classically inspired arrangements. The guitars simply chug along in the background, content to allow the other instruments to set the mood for the song.
The song starts with a single guitar melody and some keyboards before being accompanied by a fast riff and both the deep and Black Metal vocal styles playing off each other. From there it Prophecies In Blood - Graveworm - As The Angels Reach The Beauty (CD into a faster guitar harmony, before slowing down completely with just keyboards, violins and a cello creating such a feeling of sorrow that it really does get to me almost every time.
It really is the skill in which emotion is presented within this album that sets it apart from other Black Metal releases, including their own. In addition to the emotion, it is also the various movements within each song that allows it to never become tedious, and also allows the whole album to never start sounding like a blur.
As Prophecies In Blood - Graveworm - As The Angels Reach The Beauty (CD album proceeds, they continue to make great use of all the instruments available to them from violins and cellos to pianos and bag pipes, as well as some great guitar harmonies; all of which they would begin to move away from on future releases. Despite the mournful nature of the album and the slower pace for Black Metal of a lot of the material, this album is not without any of the aggression that those who like their new stuff have come to expect.
