Album of the month - January 2016

Band: The Human Voice
Album title: Silent Heart
Release date: 21 January 2016
Label: Cyclic Law

Silent Heart is a deep and moving experience from beginning to end. Never becoming overwhelming yet always holding onto the listener emotionally, it dives deep into our psyches and tears at what makes us human, what makes us feel. Silent Heart was years in the making and Harleif Langas proves yet again that the best things take time and patience to create. Silent Heart is arguably one of Langas' best albums to date, and probably the most emotionally gripping of all. While Northaunt often gives one the feeling of being in the midst of a dark and desolate landscape, The Human Voice manages to manipulate the mind itself, pulling us through deeply melancholic and personal passages, reflecting the dark waters of a tortured soul. Silent Heart is highly recommended to any fan of the more subdued and personal side of dark ambient. However, if that kind of thing doesn't usually tickle your fancy, you may find that this album is the exception. Silent Heart is truly a masterwork by Langas and yet another testament to why he is one of the most celebrated and essential names in the dark ambient genre. The ability to bring forth deep emotions in the listener is a testament to the meticulous preparation and highest standards held by Harleif Langas.

Video of the week

Draconian - Stellar Tombs

Recommended by Terra Relicta

Band: Dawn Of Oblivion
Album title: Phoenix Rising
Release date: 25 April 2015
Label: M&A MusicArt

Phoenix Rising is a work that leads the listener through many different emotional, dark and mystical states, and thus serves with many musical variations all centered around deep gloomy and atmospheric gothic metal. Even though Dawn Of Oblivion don't discover any new territories soundwise, they carefully blend those typical 90s gothic metal lines, so familiar to the maestros of the genre like are Tiamat and Paradise Lost, with some guitar riffs used by Therion on Theli or Vovin, and to make the thing even more audacious and sinister they add a pinch of black metal and doom elements on a couple of occasions, but yet at the same time they don't forget that their heritage is in gothic rock. Many elements could resemble to The Sisters Of Mercy or even more to The Fields Of Nephilim. Still, some oriental vibes, like used in the miffed iconic goth metal piece "Anubis", or floydian ambiances in the emotional and soothing "Within The Realms Of The King Of Amur" that are similar to those used back then by Tiamat on Wildhoney or on A Deeper Kind Of Slumber make their sound special in many ways. Dawn Of Oblivion with this album showed that it's still possible to make astounding things within the gothic metal realms.
