ALAS is the latest project of Erik Rutan (MORBID ANGEL, HATE ETERNAL) and Martina Astner (ex-THERION, ex-DREAMS OF SANITY). Further starring are former KRUPPS-tour.drummer Howard Davis and Scott Hornick (Ex-RIPPING CORPSE).
"Absolute Purity" is no Death Metal at all, rather they are offering us complex riffery and strange song-structures, combined with the angelic vocals of chanteuse Martina. But still it's no Gothic Metal either. Sounds pretty interesting, I just cannot find any red line within the compositions! You won't remember any melodies, any harmonies, not even after repeated listening!
Sorry, with all respect for the musical demand, but I guess those are no "songs"!
