Desiderium - An image of solitude

Genre : Folk black metal

Despite being newcomers in the genre, Desiderium set themselves as challengers quite efficiently! Using melodic and catchy riffs most of the playtime, first thing that strikes is the guitar work, done well enough not to get boring any time. Acoustic parts successfully break any possible monotony, too, and they add rich layers to the sound. Add, on top of that, vocals that fit the genre, being perfect for an atmospheric black metal, distant and not agressive in the end. Clean vocals fit the music, which is worth a special mention since it isn't the case in most black metal bands. Sure those are not the biggest part, yet welcomed. With all those positive features, the result is deep atmospheres, energic parts and calming ones, without being repetitve at all. A clever composition, moreover perfectly executed. A real surprise, and a good one!

You should check out Pale cloak of dawn and Waldeinsamkeit. And follow Desiderium on Facebook. An image of solitude is available as a free listen and download on bandcamp.
