5.0 out of 5 stars Challenging Black Metal, 7 April 2008
This review is from: Two Hunters (Audio CD)
This is one of the most surprising Black Metal releases in a long while. From the outset of the album you are thrust into a world of bleak beauty encapsulated in wonder for nature. The first track is an incredible slow procession containing many major chords but with the undeniable fuzz of BM, right from the start you realize this is not going to be a standard BM album. In the classic "Hvis Lyset Tarr Oss" style, the album only contains 4 tracks, one of which being 18 minutes long. One might turn one's nose up at an 18 minute long track however, this is possibly by far the most interesting and gripping 18-minuter that I have personally ever had the privilage to lisen to.

Another notable feature on this album is the presance of a female vocal. Personally, for me, female vocals in metal always lack anything resembling beauty or musical interest. Favouring dull and unimaginative ramblings over something of higher substance. These female vocals do not even come close to the former, they being of such feeling and wonder that you can hardly imagine anything better for this moment of the album. A truly fantastic performance from Jessica Kinney one that will haunt you for days to follow.

All I can say is that this is one of the absolute best albums released in 2007 and anyone who is thinking about getting this, should so, at their earliest convenience.
