Reviews

FOREST OF SOULS - CONTES ET LEGENDES D'EFEANDAYL - ADIPOCERE
Two years after releasing their demo/MCD on Adipocere, the French label is now making the band's debut full-length available to the market. With vocalist Deres surrendering the guitar to newcomer Fred Mariotti the band's sound has undergone an alteration, although the demo-quality production remains unchanged. This brings the band's sound to what can best be described as Candlemass gone keyboard trendy! While the band's fantastic creation of a world christened Efeandayl is impressive, the keyboards, whistles and other nouveau-trendy expressions of atmosphere are not. The band does have good moments (which is when it tailgates Candlesmass), but the general concept is too soft for a metal fan. - Ali "The Metallian"
