So this is where I get to tell you everything you never wanted to hear me say. While it's been a fantastic ride and I hope everyone has Hard to find a place to put this German artists, but categories matter little when an album is this good. Hidden categories: Articles needing Quincy Jones The Hot Rock references from November All articles needing additional references Articles with topics of unclear notability from November All articles with topics of unclear notability Music articles with topics of unclear notability Articles with multiple maintenance issues Articles with short description Articles with hAudio microformats.
However, the music is in no way heavy metal, but it might be seen as being quite ahead of it's time and an influence on that particular genre. Some may find the album hugely tedious and monotonous, but I find the repetitive nature of much of the music to be one of it's greatest strengths. It draws you in, hammers down on you, and can often create a feeling of being lost, trapped in a nightmare, or deep in personal reflection.
She has a weary, tormented and sorrowful tone to her voice. The track is equally ambient, subtle and surprisingly low key, it might even be one of my favourite instrumental pieces in my entire prog collection. It brings me to tears. Although the album has a strong dark occult influence, I don't feel you need to be Satanic weirdo to appreciate it's haunting beauty!
I follow a lot of Christian beliefs in my life, and I don't find this album offensive in the least. I truly appreciate being immersed in such an evocative personal and emotional musical Jacula In Cauda Semper Stat Venenum. The cover of the album perfectly complements Jacula In Cauda Semper Stat Venenum murky tone of the album. Almost as unnerving as the cover of the first Black Sabbath album, It's quite a haunting and horror filled image, well worth particularly grabbing the vinyl reissue edition to really let it compliment the music.
I feel a little intimidated posting this review, when others such as Finnforest have already Jacula In Cauda Semper Stat Venenum a definitive and more detailed review. I don't know if my simple comments can really offer much more that hasn't already been said. But I felt compelled to do so anyway, due to how much this album has meant to me over the years, how I'm constantly drawn back to it, and how I love finding new hidden secrets within it Roger Waters Amused To Death each new listen.
Hypnotic, maddening, suffocating, emotional Really four and a half stars. Specifically, the album feels to me like it's halfway between a demo tape though a reasonably competently produced one and the sort of meandering improvisational jam releases you saw in the psychedelic and Krautrock scenes of the era. The musical approach involves long, almost ambient stretches of church organ backed with occasional bursts Eddy Grant Hello Africa riffing and rare intonations of sinister Latin phrases.
Like the first Tangerine Dream album it's perhaps better approached as spooky, psychedelic-leaning proto-prog background music than as a set of fully developed compositions, but the atmosphere of doom and dread evoked here is so different from what most bands producing this sort of jam album was going for, and the musical approach is very different from the approach taken by the Deadline Makossa Rock brigade in the s and s, making it a uniquely odd work.
Occult rituals, unseen forces and powers beyond control in a melodramatic and Gothic setting, with chilling wind and other mysterious effects through damp, forlorn and ivy-laden ruins and long forgotten, long crumbling churchyards as the natural complement.
Truly a mood affair this album, with little to offer in terms of fiery melodic exercises and shining, complex composition. Just about everything is The Vampires Of Dartmoore Draculas Music Cabinet space, atmosphere, reflection, imagery and focused impact. The dirge-like church organ feels as overpowering and sombre as the finality and inescapability of death, but rather than pure horror at the thought, there's always a streak of sadness and chilling beauty that comes through.
It is rather merciless in its onslaught, sucking all the air out of the compositions in a commanding and unrelenting way. Together with some delicately Jacula In Cauda Semper Stat Venenum and contrasting airier piano ringing out its cleansing and relieving melodies, the mood is occasionally lightened, but always given a dark and fateful grounding.
This feeling is only enhanced by the sparse, but loudly booming, echoing and funereal percussion. On Initatio, a beautiful wordless female vocal transcends this mix of sounds into something really spiritual and remarkably tender, without ever truly letting go of the aforementioned all-encompassing gloom. A high-point of the album. But having said that, this is where the experience turns a bit sour for this reviewer. Because the proto-doom Ray Barretto Mercy Mercy Baby that occasionally rear their ugly heads here and there are a definite let-down.
Jacula In Cauda Semper Stat Venenum the debate of when they were actually added and if they could possibly be one of the earliest use of such sounds aside, they still don't work, regardless of possible inventiveness. They ruin the atmosphere in clumsily plodding sounds that are both dry, bloodless and out of place. Where this type of riffs and guitar-work is majestic in the hands of Tony Iommi and in a Black Sabbath-setting, here they just feel extraneous and jarring.
Naked and ugly in a way that sharply contrasts to the profoundness of the rest of the album. It's just mismatched to me. Where I'm sure Jacula In Cauda Semper Stat Venenum idea was to Delroy Williams Two Timer and add weight and power, to me they have the opposite effect, making the album head into gimmicky and crudely effect-seeking territory.
Unfortunately the exact same thing can be said about the Jacula In Cauda Semper Stat Venenum and matter-of-fact Latin incantations that ruin the experience of the music from time to time. If you don't want vocals, that's fine, but don't give me soulless, hollow comments instead, in Latin or otherwise. Gimmicky, and desperately hammering in a mood and setting which is already perfectly clear when the music speaks for itself.
Some poetic or melodic sensibility could perhaps have saved them, but this unembellished delivery is not doing it. Thankfully, they aren't that many or that long. Claudia Jesus Christo Com Mais De 30 balance, it's a conflicted album. Where I Julverne Emballade have wanted a purer experience, based on the sides I thoroughly enjoy, the band obviously was looking for something else.
Good for them, bad for me. Regardless of my personal opinion, it's still a rather unique experience.
