Askara : “Lights Of Night” CD 8th April 2022 Fastball Records. Switzerland Classical / Dark / Symphonic / Black Metal band.
The second album from the band, I must say while it is a very good album that would not have to be into the Metal world. The growling voice is responsible for this, some will appreciate it. I found this sad to bring this element that kind of kills the beautiful atmosphere.
Askara could easily be set into classical music style on top of the charts. They decided to set them into that modern age of beautiful music with a growling voice. There is a scene for that. It’s always difficult to review music that you enjoy but got something that makes you feel so bad you won’t listen to it again.
As of what the media created in the 2000 era, Askara will be classified as “Symphonic” Metal as the purpose of this style is mainly to mix classical music with Metal elements. In this album the classical music is much more pushed than the Metal part, giving it a strange feel.
