Ceremonium ('No Longer Silent' in particular)
Ah, I shall now take this opportunity to listen to this delightful album again so that I can best convey it's nature: combining the most atmospheric elements of evocative death metal, melodic black metal, and an interactive variant of doom on multifarious levels, Ceremonium create a musical journey which enraptures the listener through mesmerizing discourse. Structurally unique, the skill at which this style is played is quite refreshing, and this band are one of few to have ventured into a realm of originality. Their majestic cover of "Cromlech," and the very fact that they have chosen to cover this particular song, elucidate their forthright and authentic attempt at creative artistic expression. In all honesty, this style of music is probably most akin to a progression of the death medal anticipated by pioneers Amorphis.
