German Folk / Symphonic / Heavy / Dark / Black Metal band. A band that got friends participating to this project has died before the release of the album bringing a sad shadow over it. The whole album is full of emotions yet with enchanting and dancing parts with the Celtic Folk kind of ancient times.
Somehow the compositions of the band sounds close to the northern countries music remembering passages from Dissection, Immortal , yet dark ones in the vein of Paradise Lost, Heavy parts with a taint of late Helloween tunes.
Few songs sounding like an hymn to ask the crowd hailing Ash Of Ashes and support their mourning times with those beautiful parts. Skaldir the main composer of this project is helped by a friend Morten on the lyrics as the vocals. To make this piece complete they have guests , on Drums Dennis Strillinger , and for two songs on Nyckelharpa Mathias Gyllengahm , on Hardingfele Runahild.
Have a listen :
A great album that really sounds like a whole band accomplishment but is more the music and idea of a man with a good friendship that led this brilliant project to life. An Awesome logo and a cover art reminding the vikings sending their dead ones to the sea. Masterpiece of emotions 100/100.
