3 stars The Finnish band Callisto's first album presents a nice set of post-metal songs, many quite similar but still enjoyable. I'm not really that much experienced in the genre, nor usually a fan of it, but there is something in the mood Callisto songs give me that I notice myself returning to them every now and then. One thing I really dig in their style are the quiet parts, while often labelled almost a distraction or a necessary evil to have in metal (at least what I can tell from the writing style of some metallists), are actually many times the real essence of the sound of them. I also like the vocals which are not on the forefront and are sort of less growly than most growls in the heavier side of metal (not a fan of those, either). Songs on "True Nature Unfolds" usually evolve from the nice, peaceful moody parts (like the ones in "Storm") to banging, slow eight-note riffs which while interesting tend to be too repetitive for my tastes. While overall pretty enjoyable, as I said, there is nothing very memorable on this album. Therefore I would not recommend this album as a starting point for those wanting to check the band out, I much prefer their second "Noir". This is a nice album of "chillout evening metal" as I call it (some of you must know what I mean). Nothing more, nothing less.
