4 stars The continuous repetition of five heavy guitar chords for the first minutes of this over 40 minutes metal epic cam make you worry about it. Relax. It doesn't rely on those five chords for all its duration. It's a long suite made of different sections, and great part of them are very good.

Even if the sounds are typical of this artist and the ethnic middle eastern interludes aren't missed, "Me On" ("With Me" in Greek), is honestly one of the best Senmuth's albums that I've listened to up to now. For those who are used with his music, I can say that there's nothing really new, it's just better than usual. For the others, Senmuth is a one man band usually based on electronics, but he's also a good metal guitarist who uses 7 to 9 strings guitars. His music is very often insoired to the ancient civilizations, Egyptian in particular, and his ethnic interludes are often related to Egypt. His music is dark, even when he goes more "ambient", and this album is not different.

What I find good, is the continuity. Even changing from dark metal to ambient, to ethnic and back, there aren't sudden changes. The various parts flow one into the next so that it can be perceived as a true single track, not a patchwork of shorter pieces tied together (sometimes he did so in the past).

Despite the heavyness of some parts, strange to say, it may work also as background music, depending on your state of mind.
