Third album ALUNAH quartet, formed in 2008 in Birmingham, England, "Awakening The Forest" is a delicate balance between certainty dealt out by his guitars and doubts and nuances instilled by the voice of Sophie Day. If unfortunately the second you astray at times, ruthlessness riffs will get you back on the tortuous path: the shadowed by the inevitable father figure of BLACK SABBATH, but where, when the forest is awakened, we can cross the minds of Mike Oldfield tortured or Carlos Santana, spectra Dodgers ALAN PARSONS PROJECT or METALLICA or poltergeists Marilyn Manson, Trent Reznor of or even Adele.
"The Summerland" which closes the album, is particularly emblematic in this respect: starting in an atmosphere where we imagine the "Mexican Moon" CONCRETE BLONDE piercing through the tops of giant sequoias millennia, after a confusing transition on a path almost soft-pop and downright ethereal piece reveals first guitar solo of infinite majesty, so climb Golgotha but even more class and then a monstrous riff worthy of the forges of all Hells - level "No Quarter" and "Snowblind". And there, a bit like a given in a novel by Houellebecq moment everything makes sense.
Is "Awakening The Forest" is therefore probably not free of imperfections, but it is a powerful and rich album, inspirations, sometimes transparent, serve a generous work, very endearing, and probably more accessible than those of many other groups occupying the neighborhoods of Doom Mr. and Mrs. Psyche. Finally, in cherry wood, French audiences will see at least a few extracts, preview, during the transition to ALUNAH Divan du Monde in Paris, October 3 (with Kamel and THE LONELY ORDER OF Israfel)
