3 stars I would say that "Eternal Eclipse of Frost" is more gothic than progressive rock or, at least, a mixture between both styles. There are some very nice melodies and orchestrations, and I like -specially- the beautiful viola and violin presence, but most of the album is dominated by powerful guitar and drums loads, while the female operatic voice "fights" against the solemn male chorus.

Unlike typical gothic bands like TRISTANIA or THEATER OF TRAGEDY (except the latest album in this case), DUNWICH doesn't use growlings or rough voices, but the style is basically the same. So, after to listen to this album (the only I heard from DUNWICH), I could categorize this Italian band like a "soft gothic" group.

The most delicated and melodic tracks ("Il Nostro Incanto" and "L'Avorio Di Irene") are the highlights, while the rest is good but essentially reiterative. Nevertheless, all those who like gothic music without the heaviest metal hints and with progressive elements will surely enjoy this album.
