5 stars Be careful, you are near the gory bosk of Comus. First Utterance, their debut album, is one of my favorite albums. It was unique when released, and still is a cult masterpiece. This psychedelic prog folk has some of the darkest and ugliest soundscapes ever released. Right from Diana, the first track, this band will introduce you to the evil side of the Avant-garde. The dissonant violin and the wood sounds are smoking angry. The paranoic cover art and band logo fits well. The whole album is weird. The freak vocals are disturbing, like a corpse smiling with the dead eyes full of madness, and his putrid body trying to sing lying in the floor. And you will never found something like this. The freak vocals are disturbing, like a corpse smiling with the dead eyes full of madness, and his putrid body trying to sing lying in the floor. The female vocals are beautiful, causing a phantasmagoric contrast. Just taste The Herald, so sweet. While Kalmah wants to be a "Swamp Metal" terrific band, Comus have been haunting the underground music scene beyond trees and diving in bogs for decades, without being an extreme rock band.

If you already are into Comus' First Utterance, I will recc you Cranes - Wings of Joy.
