Just when you thought that music couldn't get any more creative, these Norwegians have raised the creative bar to a new level. This is the band's second CD and should draw some praise not only by me, but others in the Metal-scene.
Zet, who is the lead vocalist for the band and guitarist, is very versatile and plays a wide range of instruments. As for the singing, Zet is the dirty vocalist, while Sareeta, who is a female, sings the pretty and elegant vocal lines. Let's get this straight now, this is not another LACUNA COIL. This band combines Black Metal with Noise, Industrial ala RAMMSTEIN and lots of melodies and harmonies with violins. When Sareeta sings her lines, elegant music isn't played in the background, but rather, throbbing double-bass-drumming and noise.
"R.I.P." is just one of the creative songs that will play everything that I just told you. They even manage to throw in some choir and progressive sounds. The songs on the disc showcase a wide range of dynamics that didn't seem possible until now. Atmosphere also plays a key role in the band's sound that will surely set them apart from anyone else. Good luck trying to pigeon hole these guys. It's impossible!
Each track here not only has a mind of its own, but has a life of its own as well. Each track is unique and will not sound like the previous. To incorporate all these chaotic and complex songs in three or four minutes is just impossible. Therefore, each track ranges from seven to eight minutes, which gives them free reign and really mess with your brain.
This surely makes for a real joy to listen to, if you want something extreme, yet sensitive. Prepare for a mind-journey that you will never forget.
