Format: CD
Label: Sonorium (@)
Distributor: SX Distribution
This is music out of the moniker "higher art" to my personal preferences. ADVERSUS consisting of 7 musicians – yes, "real" musicians, which are able to play some "real" instruments like violins, piano, flutes and so on. Musically they are playing a very own form of Gothic/Electro-Metal with some strong Neo-Classic/Medieval influences. There are two classic trained female sopranos and one male vocalist, bombastic choruses, tempo changes and a German lyrical content ranging between NDT (Neue Deutsche Todeskunst) up to poetically art. It is no doubt that only one of this musicians has more talent and musically training than any stupid PC-EBM "musician". The only problem is that this kind of music is totally out of my reduced musical horizon – I can nothing fill in here which can be called a quality review on the given stuff. So I will leave and conclude this review without any rating, just because I can’t do any comparisons at all. To fill in a star rating wouldn’t be fair to the band and label. Nevertheless this production has my deepest respect regarding all aspects of being a work of art. This more than 77 minutes clocking CD will be released in a DVD boxset and will include a 24 pages booklet with some oil paintings and special artwork done by mastermind Rosendorn.
