Red King, The (US) - Vitreolvm Digipak CD
Featuring Johann Bran Cleereman from the experimental black metal entity Corvus Corax, The Red King takes us on a neo classical journey through grief and hopelessness. Lush orchestration casts a looming shadow of dread, for Johann's varied singing/black metal screaming style to further torment the emotions with inspired experimentation. There is no metal music on this release, just really well done classically inspired music, inspiring introspective reflection. Awesome digipak design sets the tone for this opus.
