2 stars In search for identity.....

Ancient took a bit of a left turn on this album and tried to find their own identity, far away from the rest of the Norwegian scene. So they found an identity..... Cradle Of Filth's identity...... and copied it from them. From cover artwork to the music. This is in the vein of Cradle Of Filth.

Cradle Of Filth is in most people's views black metal light with a lot of theatre and makeup. Ancient has copied this recipe and gone for a night in the theatre. The music is part vaudeville, part black metal and a lot of theatre music. What they ends up with is pretty dated and tiring. This album is not a disaster and those who likes black metal with a lot of dramatic female vocals, black metal screams, a lot of keyboards and the usual black metal.......phew........ will find an album they will like here. I am missing the good tunes here and disliking the whole sound and the wholesale Cradle Of Filth concept. So this album does not rocks my world, I am afraid.
