"Awakening The Forest", the third album of the band reveals everything after first listening to what may delight the heart of any genre-savvy. Tons-heavy sounds are making their way determined in the Stomach, with dry, almost apathetic-working percussion and a rhythm guitar, bass the a constant competition offers. Added to join but also groovy leads that make it clear why this the term Stoner can not be beat. Individual passages may here recall even at Down.
Viscous, like boiling lava, the individual songs roll ahead and spread it in about the same cheerfulness. This was, however, not mean that Alunah in the mourning and grieving for example, My Dying Bride expire, no, you may call their songs rather than mystical. And with that, with a lot of reverb provided, singing the Fronterin Sophie - by the way very formative for the band, I think - lives the songs also hold something imploring. In this respect, the album title is obviously not a mistake!
So Alunah bring with absolutely no bad conditions, a fully convincing album submit. However, they weaken nor where it just create bands like My Dying Bride, at the crucial Torque to attract the pace and thwart a brute insert the expectations of the listener.
The songs dare from the old verse-chorus-bridge schemes scarcely out and remain on continuously the same level, without the attention of the listener to grasp particularly strong in certain times. Well Doom is of course not known as fireworks high spirits and this claim should also are not provided. But also for a Doom album drop some songs from quite monotonous, it happens simply too little. The duration of partially eight to nine minutes per song, therefore turns out if already said sometimes a lengthy affair even after half the time everything would. This is followed Alunah have therefore to file yet, the potential to bring with Undoubtedly yes.
A neatly produced and sound-huge Doom album, which is still too little dares, as it actually could. Low-oppressive guitar riffs, a voice recognition and a continuous Atmosphere undoubtedly pose a strong attraction, which also has the entire game away in the future
