4.0 out of 5 stars Lethian Dreams - Season of Raven Words - (89%), 11 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Season of Raven Words (MP3 Download)
Lethian Dreams are French and play beautiful nature-inspired black metal/doom, packed with melody and emotion and fronted by a female vocalist. Very much coming from a similar place to fellow post-black metallers and citizens of France, Alcest and Les Discrets.

Vocally this lady reminds me alot of Amesoeurs' somewhat legendary vocalist Audrey Sylvain. Dripping with gothic melancholy and atmosphere. There's a certain dreariness to the mood that likens it to such doomy and emotional metal legends as Katatonia or Anathema. The riffs lend themselves more to the Burzum school of hypnotic meaningful 'axe'ploration - Maybe more appropriate to name some contemporaries - like Finnr's Cane or Lantlos would be more accurate, but still somewhat lazy comparisons.

There's rawness that gives this vitality. The ideas on display are startlingly crafted. White Gold is one of my favourite tracks with a stunning build up that makes me feel pressure behind my eyes and stirs up a storm inside me. Mentioning a high point on the album, but there are no dull moments here, just epic and communicative song writing that really reaches out.

This band don't appear to have even close to the recognition they deserve. I can't see that being the case for very long.
