Label: Debemur Morti Productions
Rating: 10 / 10
For those that don’t know this band, I strongly recommend reading this interview or this review, or both. For those that you knew what I talking about, it’s simple: this is 3rd album of this superb band. Here we have all elements from first two albums and much, much more.
The majestic symphonic black metal that Wallachia made for the first album is back. Back with a revenge. Revenge with more black metal that is missing from the previous one.
It’s majestic, it’s avant-garde, it’s gothic, it’s symphonic, it’s Wallachia at their best. I wonder from where this band takes this many and superb ideas. For sure I never find out, and I don’t wanna know. It’s good that this band exist and make this superb music. And makes me feel in a way that only a few albums makes me feel. It’s all I wanna know.
On this one you will find fast pieces, slow gothic pieces, mid-tempo pieces, all this meant to take you away. Away in the beautiful Wallachia world that you may know. If not, I feel sorry for you. But only you can change that if you get all albums from this wonderful band. Trust me, is worth it.
Majestic keys, stellar production, beautiful priest voices and choirs like only Type O Negative did before, many tempo changes, many mood changes, many progressive parts, many everything that I can’t describe in my humble review.
This album deserves to be in top 10 albums of the genre. Shit, more in the top 5. It’s true!
When I listened to this album for the first time I was curious for what next note and riff will bring upon me. I was surprised every each time. You never know what this band brings next in your world.
In conclusion: buy it, buy it, buy it. You will not regret it for sure. I wait for the next one. That is it! Sweet wine to my ears! So sweet!
