2 stars The only other work I own by this band is their supposed magnum opus "Arkana" but even that album didn't really thrill me in many ways. Just the compositions impressed me slightly. In the end I rewarded it with 3 stars. With this obscure second album Esoteric Poem it's an even harder task for me to get ethusiastic.

This short album is performed in the same gloomy, dark style as the more famous follow-up but the interesting large compositions are lacking here. The only track that does it for me is the shortest part IV and then only the rocky second half of it. The rest is uninspiring and makes me do what I already wanted to do with Arkana but couldn't do there because it simply would have been unfair but with this poem I have no problem giving it two stars only. Just for fans ....
