Dark Moor - Between Light And Darkness [EP]
|It is quite an usual thing for an EP to contain eight songs and to last 51 minutes. And unfortunately, this album is also the last release of the Spanish Dark Moor with this line up, as the singer Elisa Martin now is in the French band Fairyland, one of the guitarists and the drummer have left the band.
This EP is divided in two parts: the first four songs are acoustic. They make me think of a quiet version of Blind Guardian, which is not especially a bad reference. The clean and pure voice of Elisa Martin is accompanied by medieval acoustic chords and a symphonic orchestra. I want to say that her voice is different from those of most of metal female singers: she often changes tune and never becomes boring, even if her accent in English is absolutely horrible. Sometimes she even sounds like Andre Matos , for example on 'Dies Irae' . Anyway, the first three songs are my favourite on this EP , because of their sad atmosphere and the emotion Elisa Martin is able to make me feel. 'Echoes of the sea' is an instrumental track of classical music. It seems a bit caricatural to me and could have been avoided.
