4.5 superbCaptainDooRight | October 18th 12

One of folk-metals finest compilation albums and an extremely powerful effort by Empyrium. The songs here are graceful and melodious. The atmospheres focus on the common darkened-depressive moods that Empyrium are known for. The high attention to emotional detail shines through with blissful layerings, dynamic decibal shifts, musicianship that is focused on mood rather than audible display, and a group of musicians who are fueled by their desire to convey a sense of music that stands seperate from anything you've heard before. Ones could argue that the album may be boring from time to time but when properly analyzed, this latest offering fills plently of voids. If anything this album is a perfect example of how to create music that isn't boring while remaining in theme. I highly recommend this for everyone.
