Then the sound carpet is rolled out, leading with "Bricket Wood coven" .to a goal. Powerful and sometimes a little scary to drive you Dave Day (guitar), Dan Burchmore (bass), Jake Mason (drums), until this "golden door". You verspürst the urge to open it, but at the moment where you would like to learn what's behind it, a voice will sound that makes you hesitate. Soph Day (vocals, guitar), the frontwoman of Alunah manages to give a rollercoaster of emotions with your voice you. Although it is often painful, and pleading sounds creates it to win with the first note you your confidence by the hand, and you can not now go. Together you'll open in another world with Alunah this "brick wood" from heavy gate.
Threatening darkness buzzing around you and with "Heavy Bough" drill the 4 from Birmingham a really thick board. The "heavy road" is the only connection to the other side about the mystical Doomfluß. Even if the Solis describe the second title the seething Unknown under you, you have the path alone dare to open on the other side another massive wooden door. Now here you years of accession together with Soph the forest.
The black is gray and the environment immersed in a mystical green. Now it is up to you to awaken together with the creatures of the forest this area to life. Again, give Dan, Dave and Jake at this time to weave your best a tapestry of sound that still sounds in "awakening the forest" gloomy, but is becoming more familiar and almost siren-like interpretation of the title can feel you like the forest in front of your "mind's eye" awakened. In "The mask of herne" Soph describes impressive as the guardian of the old park was his time being chased by the hunters and revived by Alchemy. The essence with the mighty antlers and the red coat was born.
With "Sourge and the kiss" it is then also the mystical dark finals of the silver disc. The "Black Priestess" symbolizes the power of the new. Musically you can bring the opposites of the title barely over better. The interplay between guitar and bass, which then merges. And when Soph tries with soothing but always certain voice against this musical tackle "violence", also bass guitar and settle down at the end again! BRILLIANT.
"The Summerland" comes to us then quite different in the ears and the brain. Quiet start and a surprising Soph in a pleading voice of an angel fliest you directly under the skin and in your conscience! "When I go over the meat and the bones of the earth, I will look into the sun ... the battle is won."
"Awakening the forest" Is a Doomalbum the class. Alunahs sound like a big black bird of the sun appears to us darkened and looks down on us and proclaimed the downfall. Only now and you can actually see the sun. The pefekte use of instruments with the multi-faceted voice of Soph geparrt, take with you in the apocalypse of our planet. But be careful, if you once you willing to contend with 4 out of Birmingham you do not let yourself go. I would like to compare this album with classical Impressionists such as Mussorski and Ravel. In her rather brutal, gloomy genre it Alunah create the content of this album concerns pefekt to paint musical pictures that bring the listener on a roller coaster of emotions. Interestingly, the open end for me. We ourselves have it what happens in hand with our planet. We sharpen our feelings again for the essential in life.
Conclusion: The Doomgemeinde has found your Queen. Soph Day and your colleagues were of Napalm Records sent into the arena to the scene to vigorously mix on top and play with.
