POSTCARD FROM ARKHAM – Aeon 5
Country: Czech Republic
Rating: 9 / 10
This is a post-rock one man project imagined by guitarist and vocalist Frodys from Czech melodic death metal band AWRIZIS. This is the second album after debut “Oceanize”.
This album is based on tales from Lovecraft, E.A. Poe and H.Murakami. What do you think of that?
So, first of all, this is a very dark and strange album, with many spoken vocals that add mystery to this album atmosphere.
In my opinion, this is more than a post-rock album. You will find many progressive parts combined with many strange and splendid gothic and new wave parts, like first era MOONSPELL for gothic parts and U2 for new wave parts.
Song texts go hand in hand with this album music and atmosphere. It’s a perfect match.
The last song “One World Is Not Enough” ends this superb album in a superb manner. This is the hit song from this album and leaves you wanting more.
Lenka Machová from ADOR DORATH has contributed to this album with some beautifully spoken vocals in french language and with the graphic concept of this album also, which is just brilliant.
This album you must hear it to believe it.
I understood that this band will do some live shows, so you make sure you don’t miss them!
