SOLD OUT AP04 Darkenhöld "A Passage to the Towers" CD
by Administrateur Boutique Date Added: Wednesday 13 July, 2011
On : DARKENHÖLD, even though they hail from France, they do not walk the recently widely appreciated DEATHSPELL OMEGA path. At the same time, you will not witness any spikes, corpsepaint or satan worshipping here. DARKENHÖLD are dark storytellers. Conceptually, their Black Metal evolves around medieval tales, dungeons, castles, forests, wars, magic and prophecies... Musically, they do owe much to old EMPEROR, IMMORTAL and even DISSECTION. They sound as having the full package for the style they have chosen, full of melody, with correct and discrete use of keyboards, dark atmosphere and many epic and melancholic moments ("Crimson Legions" is a representative track). The track "Darkenhöld" is truly enchanting, bringing some BATHORY in mind... I guess that if you mix some VORDVEN along with BAL-SAGOTH, you'll probably have something close to "A Passage to the Towers". The band has worked through the tracks thoroughly and have added their own ingredients to the final result, as all tracks are somehow splitted in chapters, each one having its own special dynamics. Wonderful riffs CONSTANTLY come and go, tempos speed up and slow down accordingly, chants and epic moments add to the overall atmosphere, darkness and light seem to be in a constant fight, giving you the impression that you're reading a dark tale.... "Ghouls and The Tower" is a track I simply can't stop listening to... I never expected that "A Passage to the Towers" was going to appeal to my taste that much. Ignore the tracks on youtube as that kind of "flat" quality simply does not give justice to the effort that has been put here. Get this release and give these pitch-black storytellers a chance to reach out to you... SD
