4 stars I like this album. Simple? More or less. The sound from keyboard sometimes is very loud but it's not a problem. Mark Jansen, Floor Jansen and Sander Gommans with their vocalizations are amazing. At time the called gothic metal was in vogue and because of that band's sound was considered as another, but here it was possible to see the greatness of the band, with songs like "Leaden Legacy - The Embrace That Smothers - Part 1", "Follow In The Cry - The Embrace That Smothers - Part 2" and "Yield to Temptation (The Embrace That Smothers - Part III)". Latin verses beautifully constructed: "Mea Culpa (The Embrace That Smothers - Prologue)" What to say about "Silence From Afar" ? beautiful and sad at the same time. "Inimical Chimera" is strong, heavy and vibrate. Very good riffs improved further in the next album...amazing, as I said before, I like this album. "Ephemeral" is ethereal and short...a poem... "Beyond Me" brings "Sharon Den Adel" (Within Temptation) in a duet with "Floor Jansen". Perfect? Not, but excellent.
Vobiscum | 4/5 |
