Halcyon Reviews

묵직하게 갈겨주는 기타의 맛. Solstice 입니다. 어딘지 둠메틀의 교과서는 따로 둔 뉘앙스가 강한 앨범입니다. 보이스때문에 청각에 혼란이 올 수도 있는 앨범이기도 합니다. 완급조절이 살짝 앞서 이뤄지다보니 뜬금없이 기승전?!으로 나가기도 하지만 집중을 요하진 않고, 되게 단순한 반복적인게 아니라 살짝살짝 보컬파트의 유연한 대처가 분위기를 묘하게 바꿔놓기도 합니다. 되게 (찰지다) 하는 표현이 딱 맞는 앨범인데 공백기가 쫌 길어서 인지 레코딩만 좋아지고 연결점찾기가 어려워진 앨범입니다.

Halcyon Comments

level 12   70/100
It's good, but for some reason entirely weaker than the debut, and the interludes are terrible.
level 21   85/100
Ep "Halcyon" pokračuje v štýle predošlého podareného debutového albumu, čiže kombinácia Doom/Heavy Metal -u.
