Love History picture
Love History biography
In the Czech Republic there are/were several prominent metal bands such as Forgotten Silence, Silent Stream Of Godless Elegy and there was also Love History. This band was unique sounding and progressed and experimented with their sound in their two studio releases. An eclectic sound that borrowed form several sources - metal and non-metal (for instance the use of Flamenco in Anasazi). The band released one MCD called Desires in 1995 and went on to release their two only albums - Gallileo, Figaro, Magnifico in 1999 and Anasazi in 2000.

Their sound is made up of fragments of fast riffs metal, some death and doom characteristics, some "goth" metal and then some non-metal ingredients as mentioned above (folk parts, flamenco, theatrical bits lead by the clean vocals). They shift from aggressiveness to calmer and mellow parts without making it sound unnatural. There is a variety of sounds in the albums themselves, which is achieved by using many instruments, and several vocal styles - death metal growls, deep male voice and female soprano. The end result is eclectic but with a connecting thread to bind it all and it is clear they strive to achieve more than "simple" metal when you listen to the intricate and ambitious songs filled with various components and complexities.

Love History is highly recommended to people who like bands in the eclectic and original style of Subterranean Masquerade, Opeth, Pan-Thy-Monium and Unexpect.

Love History Tech/Extreme Prog Metal

Review by toroddfuglesteg

— First review of this album —
3 stars One of the many debuting goth/doom metal bands from the Eastern Europe that year. 1995 was indeed the year of the flood.

In a review I did for a magazine that year, I branded this band one of the best Eastern European doom metal bands on the basis of this MCD. A lot of water has passed under the bridges of Babylon since then and this MCD does not sound that fresh and vital anylonger.

Love History, the band name is very original, delivers dark goth metal with death grunts and downtuned guitars. The sound is not particular good. The music is fairly decent and nothing more. The big plus here is the use of piano which was pretty original back then. There are also some saxophones here.

This MCD is a relic from the times where dark goth metal was all the rage and MCDs like this pushed the envelope. But I still find this MCD pretty pleasant. The very effective use of saxophone and piano adds an extra dimension to this album which swings it up to a good MCD. But it is still a relic. I will though purchase their two other albums to see how this band, which I rated very highly back in 1995 and almost signed to my record label, developed.

3 stars

Thanks to avestin for the artist addition. and to memowakeman for the last updates
