Satyrian: Eternitas
Lion Music (2006) www.lionmusic.com
Mai tineti minte DANSE MACABRE? Jan „Orkki” Yrlund, un veteran al scenei Gothic Rock s-a decis sa scoata de la naftalina acest proiect si, cu o componenta internationala impresionanta, a schimbat numele in SATYRIAN concepand acest nou album! Pentru cei ce nu stiu, Orkki are in palmares trupe remarcabile cu care a colaborat: LACRIMOSA, IMPERIA, ANGEL, DELAIN, PRESTIGE, SINMASTERS, BURANA 357... Nu stiu cum sa prezint compozitiile SATYRIAN, pentru ca ele sunt foarte diferite, mai degraba putand vorbi de o compilatie de piese. Probabil ca si acesti 4 ani de liniste i-au determinat pe muzicieni sa-si puna pe portativ toate ideile Gothic Rock colectate. De aici insa si o aglomeratie de idei, dandu-mi senzatia de usoara oboseala auditiva. Vocile feminine sunt destul de „colorate”, Kemi Vita (THE DREAMSIDE) si Judith Stuber intrand in rezonanta cu vocea puternica  a lui Roman Schonsee (va mai amintiti de PYOGENESIS), care oscileaza intre agresivitate Dark si naturalete Goth, timbrul jos al vocalizelor  fiind extrem de placut! Chitarile suna extrem de energic, keyboard-ul este pretutindeni, ritmul tobelor este unul simplist dar antrenant, totul suna superb! Chiar daca e foarte comercial, soundul SATYRIAN nu paraseste dimensiunea Dark, mixul de romantic & classic orchestration, franturile Wave si Rock Atmospheric conturand, in final, un album de exceptie! Desi riff–urile chitarilor suna mai degraba Metal decat Rock, nu putem spune ca SATYRIAN este o trupa Metal. Dar, sincer sa fiu, chiar nu are importanta: Atmospheric Dark Goth/Rock suna atragator? Pentru mine da... www.satyrian.com

Do you remember DANSE MACABRE? Jan “Orkki” Yrlund, a veteran of the Gothic Rock scene, decided to unshelve this project and, along with the participation of certain impressive international figures, changed the name into SATYRIAN and created this very album! For those uninformed, Orkki holds record of remarkable bands he had collaborated with: LACRIMOSA, IMPERIA, ANGEL, DELAIN, PRESTIGE, SINMASTERS, BURANA 357... I’m troubled into presenting SATYRIAN’s pieces, because they differ a lot from one to another, therefore we could rather consider it a compilation. Perhaps these four long silenced years determined the musicians to entwine on the stave all their risen Gothic Rock ideas. Therefore, we are dealing with a conceptual hybrid which generates a slight auditory fatigue. Feminine vocals are considerably “coloured”, so that Kemi Vita (THE DREAMSIDE) and Judith Stuber enter into a deep resonance with Roman Schonsee’s powerful voice (it still resembles PYOGENESIS), one oscillating between the Dark aggressiveness and Goth’s unaffectedness, therefore we can experience as extremely pleasant the low timber of the exercises in vocalization! The guitars    sound very energetic, the keyboard is all over, the rhythm of the battery is a simple but drawing one, everything is superb! Despite its commercial scent, SATYRIAN’s sound doesn’t part with the Dark dimension, moreover, the romantic & classic orchestration mix alongside the shades of Wave and Rock Atmospheric stand out an exceptional album in the end! Even if the guitar riffs sound more Metal than Rock, we cannot label SATYRIAN as a Metal band. But, sincerely, it doesn’t matter at all: does Atmospheric Dark Goth/Rock ring any captivating bells to you? Cause that’s my sense out of it...
