Imago Mortis

This CD arrives to The Noctuary compliments of Mistress Satanya:
Imago Mortis
Vida: The Play of Change

From Brazil emerges Imago Mortis {"Image of Death"}, which to Me sounds like a cross between Candlemass, Type O Negative, and Sepultura. Operatic, heavy, slow Power grinding at times, and in others, a faster pace similar to Iron Maiden. Themes range from the romantic to the tragic, the melancholy to the morbid. At times, one thinks one is listening to Messiah Marcolin's vocals, and in others, an almost Geoff Tate impression echoes in the chambre of the mind. I was particularly impressed by 'The Silent King', 'Unchained Promethius', and 'Long River'.

The aesthetic presentation of the CD is splendid, with a spectral collage blending into one another as if from the dark subconcious.

Piano solos, pathos-inducing ballads, haunting keyboards, sound effects to accentuate the storylines, all merge together as one, in a veritable eclectic opus of sonic gratification. If there is some sort of 'catagory' for Gothic-Metal-Classical compositions, Imago Mortis would fit perfectly.

Rating: 5/5.
