Although, the latter is relative, because actually I know this kind of music all indeed. Alunah namely elaborates upon the heavy sound that first Black Sabbath and later a band like Saint Vitus, Cathedral but for example also announced. Either classic heavy doom, a mysterious edge of melody and feeling put in long, drawn-out songs. What this band has its own course, the female vocals, which controlled and a little conjuring lyrics for bears.
Six numbers only, but long and exciting. The sturdy, heavy riffs and drum rhythms in the base are equipped with subtle (acoustic) guitar and quiet, spellbinding, yet passionate and powerful vocals (the latter two from the lady in the company). When the slow lumbering sound wall opener Bricket Wood Coven itself clears, I actually sold immediately. These are already eight minutes pleasure, which is also room for the rhythm section to assert themselves. Heavy Bough is the next most compact track on the album, and Napalm must have therefore also suitable as video, thought so.
Title track Awakening The Forest is a wonderfully atmospheric doom song with a nice floaty feel. Especially the combination of vocals with nice sounds will let you enjoy unwieldy entrainment without music is boring. Make the following songs that unequivocally clear: loom, spherical and floaty, but not a second boring; be strong doom! Especially Scourge And The Kiss is a delightful spherical scene!
I would closing The Summerland unlike previous numbers define as dreamy. Not as heavy, but as spherical; more acoustic, with even more space for fine whining vocals and guitar work. Initially get used after previous violence, but that ultimately no less beautiful. The song has as good a beautiful climax. I am ashamed that this should retroactively adjust my acquaintance with Alunah be. On the other hand, I think Awakening The Forest or a perfect entrant!
