Towards the Frozen Stream
This is awfully disappointing, specifically for a No Colours release.
I'm quite certain the only reason this was even released was to grab
some extra cash from the ever growing 'melodic, atmospheric' synth
drenched pseudo-black metal scene. Take a hefty dosage of Dimmu Borgir,
toss in a little Summoning, add some incredibly bad female vocals, and
you have yourself a Vordven CD.
There's actually some decent keyboard work here, and certain moments
hold something a little special, but overall this is a waste of time. If
you like Dimmu Borgir, you will probably enjoy this (no, they aren't
that awful, just similar). If you can't stand easy-listening black metal
with generic atmospheres, or music that is geared towards fans of the
fall of black metal, you will hate this. I sure do.
