RJ Epic, theatrical, atmospheric black metal. The acoustic, string instruments, and piano fit well with classic black metal sounds. All that being said it’s also a brighter and lighter black metal album, which is absolutely not a bad thing. 8/10 Favorite track: Reminiscence.
weathervane thumbnail
weathervane Acoustic guitars, violins and piano work in harmony with traditional black metal elements to create an album that makes me feel like I'm being wrapped in a blanket by Mother Nature. It is both melancholic and uplifting, and when the album ends, I'm left with the grieving, hopeless feeling that someone or something you loved has left you and will never come back. Favorite track: Autumnal Embrace.
TheKenWord2017 thumbnail
TheKenWord2017 Skyforest have outdone almost everything else in the genre by creating something that is at once sad, hopeful, intense, and uplifting. Rarely is it possible to create a compelling album that can tear you apart with emotions that are naturally at odds with each other. Skyforest have done just that with Unity. Favorite track: The Swan.
