4 stars Anima Morte continue to deliver their cinematic symphonic instrumental music with a lot of dark atmosphere, but also some lighter passage. The band is taking his influence from Goblin and the Swedish Prog bands, like Pär Lindh Project and Anglagard. However in the song "The Carrion Crow", it's the influence of Pink Floyd and Eloy that comes to mind. This is intense music with the keyboards shining throughout the album with the usual retro sound of the Hammond and Mellotron. But the guitars have their time to take the lead and the drums are on the spot. This is not a music overly complex but contains enough change of tempo and dynamics. The band focus on building the melody slowly with emotion. There is enough variety and moods in each song to keep the listening enjoyable for the whole thing. Unfortunately, according to the band, this could be their last album.
