On disc: ...And Oceans

- Am God - Volker Raabe - 6 stars

Am God

Am God

(Century Media - 2000)

Black metal and synthesizer-pop combined, does that work? You won't believe?!?! Listen to the Finnish band ...And Oceans! The Finnish combine mean vocals with high speed parts, blast elements and smooth keyboard sounds which sound odd in this mixture and which can't be more contrivers. Interesting, but not easy to understand. Tears Have No Name and Esprit de corps are the ones which are most easy to under­stand. The rest of the material is hard to get, but who can blame a true metal head for that?!?
What is the reason for adding the two instruments at the end of the disc, I have no idea... Guess, they are just to have a more minutes on the display...

6 stars
