After the listening of this concept-album that describes the evolution of an innocent guy who becomes misanthropic after having discovered humans' falseness and hypocrisy, we can conclude that misanthropy is law, because the seven tracks show the philosophical initiation of this guy to the "keys of knowledge". Each step brings him closer to this statement.

Of course, with such a lyrical theme, it's impossible to say how the music sounds, we can just have an idea of how dark it could be.

In fact, Flames Of Misery's first album isn't violent at all. It's at the opposite a 1 hour long Piano album full of captivating variations. The melodies are mostly dark, but not always. Some parts are just "relaxing" and sounding like "typical classical music", while others could be compared to inventive, grimy horror movies music. The quality of the album results in the great harmonious mixing of these two opposite kind of music and in the excellent technical level of Laurent Zaessinger, the guy who has done this.

Some people would say that the most important is not only to show his virtuosity, it's the ability of creating deep atmospheres, and it's exactly what I like by Flames Of Misery: there are both! Virtuosity and deep atmospheres. Some easier and mostly slower parts will give you the opportunity to breathe, but don't be worry, they are deliberately here, just to make you remember that you have to be ready for the further coming mesmerizing, great, cold and dark melodies.
