MOONSORROW "Verisakeet" [12" 3-LP, Black Vinyl, Gatefold]
2017 - Folk/Pagan/Black Metal from Finland
If you have even a drop of affinity with metal, folk or genuinely good music and art, this album will become a timeless treasure to your ears and mind! "Verisakeet" is a musical masterpiece with infinite replay value - rarely can so much conviction and passion be heard throughout an entire full-length offering; nothing reminiscent of "filler" is anywhere to be found in this album. It is unpredictable with shocking turns, yet maintains an incredibly fluent flow, giving the epic tracks the image that they are classic traditional songs of the same nature as those they were inspired by. we have a hunch that in centuries to come, "Verisakeet" will be looked back upon as one of the musical landmarks of our generation. We could rant on this album's grandeur for twice the length, but we fear nobody would have the patience to read this if we did. Every listen will reveal something new to the listener, no matter how many spins the CD has received, whether it be the underlying vocal harmonies between harsh and clean, the discrete varying keyboard tones, or simply the brilliant subtlety of the compositions and arrangements themselves. If you have even a drop of affinity with metal, folk or genuinely good music and art, this album will become a timeless treasure to your ears and mind. You will enjoy this if you like: Finntroll, Thyrfing, Falkenbach, Kampfar, Wintersun.
