Satyrian: Eternitas
Lion Music (2006) www.lionmusic.com
Satyrian is a fabulous international goth-rock band that rose up from the ashes of Danse Macabre with a few more members from The Dreamside joining in. “Eternitas” seems to be a kind of re-release on their new label Lion Music! The sound of Satyrian is pure melodic gothic-metal music. The angelic and artistic female vocal parts are for sure reminding me of Within Temptation. The song “The haunted lovers” for example is an amazing emulation of Within Temptation. “Eternitas” is animated by a kind of duality between the heavier guitar riffs and melodic, delicate piano arrangements. The same feelings come back with the production of the vocals. At one side you’ve the heavenly vocals of 2 female singers and at the other side a male vocalist singing a harsher way. There’s a constant mix of powerful guitar parts and refined gothic elements. Songs like “Feel the rush”, “Eternitas”, “The dark gift” or yet “Fall from grace” just reveal the brilliance of this opus, which even seduced me more than Within Temptation! In a different style comes the medieval approach of the “The bridge of death”-cut, which is also a real success! Satyrian perfectly knows the way to mix power, melodies, emotions and a touch of mystery with each other! This is a real great album! (DP:8/9)DP.
