BLEAK - REFLECTIONS ON DEATH BLACKTHRONE
Reflections On Death is an odd little CD. Comprised of one 28-minute single and adorned with a melancholy photograph of nature, it is instantly obvious that this isn't your average commercial release. In fact the label sells this for £3 and that's postage-paid. On the musical front, Bleak is blackened medleys and an agonized cacophony straight out of Dante's Inferno where with piece after classical piece the band creates its own synthesized symphony of doom. In fact most of the CD is a computerized attempt at classical Nietzsche. This is completely bleak. www.totaldarkness.co.uk.
