The Womb Of Primordial Nature - Carsten Bahr - 7 stars

The Womb Of Primordial Nature

The Womb Of Primordial Nature
(Debemur Morti - 2008)

Finnish musicians are known for creating dark, nightmarish, emotional and depth music - and that can be said about October Falls, too. The 4 tracks on this album are all about 10 minutes and simply numbered with Roman numerals. October Falls lead the listener into a world full of depressive, oppressive and melancholy sounds based on a black metal framework which is best at fast parts. The sounds are carried by double bass drumming, fragile guitar solos and atmospheric keyboard sounds. October Falls take you from driven passages to majestic, melodic parts to solemn mid-paced parts and acoustic interludes. The sound gives space to every instrument and that's probably why the desperate and mean vocals are pushed a little bit into the background. October Falls is close to bands like Ulver, In The Woods and Empyrium, but there are also some similarities to bands like Katatonia and Opeth. Not suitable as background music when hanging out with friends! This album demands the full attention of the listener, so light some candles and sit down - and dive into the sonic world of October Falls! Let them drag you into their dark, emotional world. Join them on a journey into darkness!
