1. CHOREA - Chronicles of the Darkened Earth
Symphonic Black Metal From Ukraine
A journey between the darkest of the middle ages we can hear here, under a classical and symphonic essence we can realize that musically this album represents a good quality elaboration, Under the melodic extreme Metal standards elements of the Melodic Death Black can be perceived. The songs have a mystical touch that captivates the listener with blunt melodies and very successful with the medieval context but without losing its dark essence, the guitars that are often used for the picking tremolo and the heavy gallop are accompanied by very good solos of guitar and symphonic and atmospheric passages. This album has 6 songs and 4 atmospheric intros that are gradually introduced into imaginary contexts. The structure of the songs is very complete and carefully worked, it is perfectly known at what moments to make the cuts and the change of company, especially highlighting the songs “Chronicles of the Darkened Earth” and “the Hooks”. As for vocalization, mainly shriek and acute guttural predominate, although it is efficiently combined with thick gutturals such as "Teutonic Knights" and "the plague". In general this album is highly recommended.
