My Comment
They been said as pioneer in this scene. Coz of? they argentine and only few argentine getting in this scene. Well whatever, lets hear them. Starts with intro speech in "Skiltron" then come with scottish big pipe over the way. Vocal are quite like Blind Guardian, with folklore lyrics. Music arrangement was really awesome. Simple and fun galloping riff supporting charming drum beat. "The Beheading" using Mandolin and whistle. Now the vocal much higher from "Skiltron". The good thing is they still have solo guitar. Try heard changeover rythm in "Signs, Symbols and Mark of Man". Incredible beat so far ^^. Overall, its more than i predicted. Really well produced album. Good refreshing folklore..or i can say celtic. Highly Recommended.

They are lagendary...and they now back with new album after 3 years. After two previous album they has been critic to be like Judas Priest, lets see how this album are. So far from my opition, this album is not solid and not much memorial track and more less glow. Yet still quite far from what their archieve before.Maybe "Mother Angel" would is my selected track. Btw originality and idea has been seen grown. Elaboration and lyrics are much nicer. Combination riff and keyboard making old power atmosphere has their talented. Maybe a little kick up then they will glow again. Well i still yet respect them for all old power sound and riff comparing to new power comers. For mark i give 7/10. Yet for all power fans, grab it.

My Comment
Sweedish power metal scene has grown rapidly leading with many top band such as Hammerfall, Falconer, Dream Evil, DragonLand, Noctunal Rites and others. Timeless Miracle bringing chearful epic rythm with catch riff and powerful. Tempos range from all-out speed, to slow and ballad, mostly in all song. This is Power Metal all the way, but there are just enough twists and turns to keep things consistently interesting. Not very heavy yet really enjoying and good sweedish influence. Many of the melodies on “Into The Enchanted Chamber” show a strong Folk influence mix Gamma Ray, Freedom Call, Sonata Artica, Elvenking. Its was great album btw. Also with mix with keyboard, violin and backing guitar, for sure they will pawn u down. 1st few track was superb. Soft but powerful. Recommended this album to all Power Lovers.

Freedom Call are back with new album in Jan 2010..woot !! with new basist join the force in 2009, hoping he will done a great job. Bringing 14 epic track, not much change in their concept. I can just compare with Eternity (not yet listen to Dimension). For me, the band really shown up in Eternity better than this one. What did happen? not much effort? maybe...sound was epic but very simple and not really attract listener. So far "ThunderGod" much shown than other track. "Merlin - Legend of Past" is more like Gamma Ray style. Symphonic also less and not much catch my attention. I quite dissapointed with this album. I hoping they can be better in next album. Good luck

My Comment
Exiter is one of legendary band that formed in 1980. Afterwards, they come together and making this compilation compile their top song over time. btw i not hear yet their album "Thrash,Speed,Burn" releasing in 2008, so i cant comment further. Despite the music under speed and thrash, they manage to coins 80s speed thrash band in that era. Vocal from Dan Beehler is bit like King Diamond, Iron maiden. For sound, its like 70% thrash 30% speed. The good thing is their re-recording back some song to produce quality sound. For rythm, it was catchy and noisy. Special thanks for godspeed solo by John Ricci (he the oldest member here). Great flamenco in "blackwitch".Well btw its good album to hear. Good for them to re-live and continue again speed thrash scene for future listener.

This is 1st album by them. Feeling like sitting in outerspace while enjoying scary and dark atmosphere. They mix with classical rythm, clean sound, spooky keyboard effect and good growl. its like in 70s song with black influence. Lyrics are in finnish lang. As putting BM component to their song, for me it just 40%. Other was emotinonal and bit depressive. To be as 1st album, they give good effort to make their own music. Originality is most important for them. They succesfully made their unique style to lead the band. Furthermore i recommended this album for all listener. Salute them and cant wait for their next album.

My Comment
Vampiric Poland come to life. Hermh followed few Polish band such as Behemoth (ex former member b4), Darzamat, Vesania, Graveland. Well nothing much can expected to their path following symphonic BM like Vesania. Despite the theatrical BM that they mix with symphonical image, they had open new wave for symponic era. With full grim and blasphemy over all the song, i bet this album gonna rape u up. The guitars and the keyboards (the main melody makers) are bound by an almost anarchic structure that characterizes the whole album. Much talented band. Well, i recommended this album as your collection.

My Comment
For me this album is quite preferred to Symp BM lover. "Of Pleasure and Pain" start with noisy technical riff + violin and female choir (Ana). Its not very good start but manage to make good rythm later. Maybe i can say it like Draconian + COF. Rythm was epic. Vocal are in high pitch scream. Now with "Withered Within".  I bet this will be my fav track among others. Rythm was catchy following by epical flute and synth to make an awesome atmosphere. Really good combination and elaboration. "Evil Black Sweetheart" for me not really good standup track. They drag up rythm too much. "My Dearest Dread" won as horrible spooky underwater atmosphere. Skip it. I feel sad for next other track. Btw i still like Ana voice in "Leave me torture" rather than "Im feeling". "Scent of lure" is some sort like Sin of Thy Beloved. "As sad as beautiful" is good song and atmosphere (oh finally). Then come last maiden cover. Originality 9/10. Wonderful rythm !!!
Keep up good work.
Salute !!

Going to dark zone. This 1st time i heard about this band actually. yeah yeah true they are good.  This album is limited to 500 unit only. To be truth i quite passion with their atmosphere. Such a chaotic and true darkness. They are 3 man involved and they using drum machine to complete the atmosphere. "Dark 3.11" make me going to their journey to the darkest world. They are using ambient synth, depressive scream, epic tremolo riffing while supporting in whispering vocal and drum machine. Most of their song is 10 minute over, yet they elaborated rythm slowly. The rythm much psycological to me (am i been hypnotized?). Btw i do respect them coz they made simple yet effective music that really accounter me. "Dark 3.14" is using diff approach. Everlasting dark synth and palm muting riff (not good track for me).Well overall highly recommended this album. Thanks DarkSpace for this masterpiece.

My Comment
Finally, great gothic band with twisted vibe. Grand symphonic synth to dark music, based on creepy and horrow. Great darkness atmosphere. Synth much like COF, and vocal like Type O Negative. "The Drama Of the Wicked" will awaken ur darkness soul. Concept synth like Dimmu Borgir. Synth is the key to lead all rythm. "Secrecies in Darkness" is in death influence with choir effect, palm muting, fast drum. Rythm is kinda repetitive yet elaborated slowly. Their Lyrics is based on horror and literature. Such a wonderful symphony. I pick "Kutulu", "Carpathia" and "Sister Najade" as standup track. Keep up good work. Recommended.

Akphaezya bringing avantgarde gothic to one step higher. This is their 1st album after demo album on 2004. Btw they are gothic on jazz influence (woot !!). Nehl which is vocalist (girl ^^) really can represent her feeling towards each rythm. She also able to change voice style on gothic or jazz or pop (lol?). This album start with darkwave and whispering Nehl voice in "Preface" (lyric on Avantgarde). Totally awesome. "Chrysalis" now showing strong gothic jazz element (ah remind me on Ephel Duath but in soft mode). Thanks also to Nehl for awesome jazz keyboard. "Beyond The Sky " is on acoustical. Great rythm and Nehl Vocal (much like Antichrisis+Lacuna Coil). Guitar riff also quite good. Heavy yet have melancholic solo (great tapping on "Awake"). Oh..cant say a word..grab it..totally recommended !!.
Thanks Nehl for superb vocal. Cant wait hear from u.

My Comment
They are only among of five metaller band of Kyrgyzstan but thats not stop them to supporting the horde.
Their contribution in "Akyr Zaman" from Stimme aus der Tiefe #1 compilation had lift up thier named and to well known now. "Black Cathedral" starts with energic rythm (em..remind me to Graveworm), raw disorted riff, blasting double pedal, epic synth and high pitch scream. However i like if guitar riff more technical and fast picking due to lack good riff (can be improve this one). Well "Sign of War" is changing, riff more to epic and well nice atmosphere. Now their standup track "Akyr Zaman". Good starting folk keyboard (or this violin?) remind me to Adorned Brood song in Metal Museum Vol 3 and then rising Black influence. Others last song was not bad also. Recommended this album !!!

(whatever). Before in their Demo their using harsh vocal but not in this album. The atmosphere was dark epic. Remind me to Therion ofc. Keyboard as main key for this band (dark orchestra) while supporting by disorted guitar. I do enjoying all the track. Although its not really "Outerspace" element, overall this album is fuckin awesome. highly recommended. Ty to Mundanus Imperium for such a great masterpiece.

I was almost shocking with i heard. I thought extreme gothic will be like Moonspell etc but i was totally wrong. They have many variety influence and element. (same like The Root in my previous post yet there are totally into dark music). Most element are in Neoclassical, some Power, Gothic, Viking and etc. Its really like blend of mix. Whatever they influent are, they still manage to find what their best. Thanks to talented Dreamlord (vocal, keyboard) for good music arrangement. I know him eversince he at Wallachia. "Silent Inferno" uses clean (not very good) and high scream vocal. "Doomsday Celebration" are in neoclassical mode and good solo. For all guitar riff in all track, i rather give 7/10. Good and have many variation depending what mode are. They also had mix with some electronic. I like their bad ass drum well managed to fast and slow beat. Conclusion this album is great yet i do prefer remaining in one genre.

In Vain come with 2nd album bringing a clear progressive black death.
"Captivating Solitude" start in dark sorrow mode. Slow rythm with high pitch scream c/w clean vocal. Guitar riff not very technical but have many variation effect,skill and melodical solo (progressive influence). "Aint No Lovin" are in heavy riff, double pedal and death+black mix vocal. In Vain have long song yet complex whereby u can listen to some classical element,acoustical and clean sound is added. Every layer is changing and making it elaborating like flowing in the wind. In Vain tries to various their rythm in every track leaving plain and same concept to all track. There known what going to reach in this album. My Fav track is "Sombre Fall, Burdened Winter". It remind me to something yet i still dont know what it is. haha..

Hail Aktarum for joining viking horde with this new and 1st album "Gang Of Troll". Supporting viking scene with belgium biggest band "Ancient Rites !!!! ". This album start with folkish ambient + orchestra music in "Troll Story". The Troll begin in "Fight of Death" , the good thing belgium have their own viking music comparing norwegian. Look like their using every Troll name in most their track (-_-) .
Keyboard using orchestra and ambient effect making a good black viking atmophere. Guitar riff was really catchy. I cant stop headbanging. Drum also awesome. good galloping through. Vocal are in harsh scream. Not really bad vocal. The journey continue with Black Troll (best track for me) and rest of other track. Their really had their own strength alhough they still new. Whatever it is, grab this album. they do talented.

woot Ihsan back with new album !! err..I missout AngL and should hear soon (fuk me). This album start with "The Barren Lands" which had unique sound (messy rythm) yet really catch my mood. "A Grave Inversed" is in deep fast technical picking with sax (omfg really cool). "After" based on progressive and slower tempo including clean ihsahn vocal. By comparing to their 1st album "The Adversary" i bet this one had devoloped so much. many song was unique (Adversary bit static and bored few end track) with kicking ass drum beat and sax with guitar as building good atmosphere. Although this album not too technical as Adversary, it still had their own strenght. They really had find higher step in expressing their style. They manage to find good way to express sax with metal run from blues influence. Good work Ihsahn. Recommended !!

This is their Best of Compilation album. Too bad their been split up. Maybe they is earliest to bring Industrial in BM scene. "The Rest" was really amazing track from their 1st demo in 1993. Great programming effect (ambient effect), raw disorted riff, fast drum beat with thrash influence, harsh pain vocal. As their Industrial theme, its not really an influence coz they maintaning raw occult BM.  "Wintermass" also quite good for me. First 7 track was poor recording (zz....cant enjoy all good song). Track 8 and after is from their 2nd demo. Look like vocal has been change to bad (haha). Well music arrangement also had change. Good devoloping and unique. Overall, good to hear (they had many idea). Sound was sucky. Good for collection.

When it come to 1995, Gehenna manage to raise above many flooded band under Darkthrone, Mayhem, Emperor skirt.
I rather like early Gehenna album due to their dark music. Well it not fast as Darkthrone or any earlier BM band but they had many good riff and awesome dark atmosphere. Guitar riff quite mellow. Keyboard was very very good. really a slab and diff approach from Emperor that time. It also a key to lead all rythm and dark atmosphere. It coins to many & many symphonic BM band afterwards. The harsh vocal manage to show dark and evil theme. Well in next after "Vinterriket", they have some Bathory sound like yet still maintaining Black as main purpose. I pick "Dark Poems Author", "A Witch is Born", "Throught Veil of Darkness" and "A Myth.." as good stand up track. Recommended !!!

This album is quite good. When it come to viking, Forlorn manage to find best melodies with good epic sound. To be as their genre black viking i thought it same like Windir or Enslaved. Yet no coz they more into viking than black. Music was slower. More Bathory influence and much similar to Borknagar. More melodies are really calm and elaborated very smoothly. Thanks to ambient keyboard that bring dark cold night thus make the atmosphere live. Well i quite shock with industrial beat at "Crystal Palace" (booooo). Drum had many variation and awesome. "Ragnarok" had diff riff than other track. Much show the glory of viking instead not dark cold music. Well overall recommended this album also. Ty Forlorn. keep up good work. Salute.

Now back to back with 3rd album by Krohm. Guitar disorted more sharp, more pain vocal, many fast rythm and still depressive misanthrophy. Yet this time music arrangement been change to make different interval in rythm. Atmospheric was really dark ,full variation, and disolation. Synth has become role key to lead the arrangement. As vocal i rather like their previous album. Drum become more fast this time. What happen after track 3 and others? are they experimental new music?(fast music combining with depressive). Well quite good but i want glory of "World through Dead Eyes" rise again. My fav track for this album is Lifeless Serenade.

My Comment
This are one mand band that really attract me. This album limited to 500 copy only. Also this 1st their album after two demos. Krohm is full with depressive misantrophy element. Music arrangement was great. Actually i never thought american cant do like this (lol now im wrong). Atmospheric is superb. Guitar riff full disorted with bringing dark melodies and depressive. Drum do great job in mixing double paddle with slow mode beat following dark synth rythm. All song here full with memoriable magical darkness atmosphere. I bet this is the best depressive band that i couldnt imagine. Lazy to review more so behold youself and hear it.
Recommended to all metallers.

My Comment
Blut Aus Nord has been among 1994 yet still struggle to spread BM legacy. They also place themselves as a good french band following biggest name like Aneroxia Nervosa and Antaeus. "Acceptance" will calm u down with peace and cold synth. What i like about this album is their atmosphere. it was dark, deepressive, melodies and calm. Riff and rythm are plenty and elaborating perfectly. Heavy and clean sound with fast tremolo sometime. Disolating keyboard effect that sometime lead the melodies, make the song mixing heavy and calm atmosphere. Scream was great pain although not a key that lead all melodies. Blut Aus Nord had really make this album one step higher to variate BM defeating "monopolise" band. All the song just flow and flow bringing ur soul and emotion to new dimension.
Well to look back at greatest effort in 2009 i pick this one as the best.  Recommended to All.
