Enslain Magazine Issue #6
Let me just state right now that this release is not metal, or metal related, and how and why it got in my hands is beyond me. However, I decided to review it anyway, because I think it could be of some interest to fans of rich atmosphere. Ethodius is a concept band, with music and ideas representing religion's affects on society throughout history. There seem to be no classic instruments in this mix other than , simply sounds and samples, that together become naturally flowing pieces. Vocals are a rarity, but when present, they are an echoed speech. The mood presented on this CD is ethereal and mystical, and they do it well. If this sounds interesting, you'll definitely enjoy this relaxing yet engrossing CD.
