Holy Blood - Waves Are Dancing - 2004 - Total Armageddon Production
According to the band's website this is actually the group's sophomore release, a follow-up to the band's debut "The Wanderer". I was really expecting raw, primitive black metal based off of the band's skeleton logo. Instead what I end up with is a complicated power metal musical, with Rhapsody immediately coming to mind. But beyond that fantastic and powerful concept comes the blast beats and raw black metal sounds of Emperor and Enslaved. Yes, Norway's black metal scene comes into play as well, with fast, melodic guitars and keys mixed in with quick, rapid picking and extreme black metal vocals. The whole thing comes off as a medieval romp through the wilderness, something that could either stick or throw the occasional metal journeyman. I for one can't stay up to speed on material this complicated.
Easily for fans of Opeth, Enslaved, Emperor, Skyclad, and Rhapsody.
