Staff review by
Darkside Momo

Let's start with the usual 'they sound like this and this and this band' game, to be done with it quickly.

Carach Angren play symphonic black metal, with quite a lot classical elements and orchestrations, which can sometimes be reminiscent of label-mates Le Grand Guignol, but without the great, über-baroque feel. Of course, the name 'Dimmu Borgir' is bound to pop up in a review of this kind of music... So? Yes, their influence can be felt, of course, but not overbearingly so. Finally, the last song will draw gazes towards the baroque masters Misanthrope, as it is sung in French.

Now, when it comes to black metal, I'm definitely a very big fan. I'd say it's certainly within my top 3 genres of metal. I've had my favorites from the whole black metal genre, always leaning towards the more melodic and symphonic side (i.e. Emperor, Dimmu Borgir), but I guess I have finally found my favorite black metal band; Carach Angren.

Rating: 9 My favorite album from these guys, it's super addicting. Heretic Poltergeist Phenomena and A Strange Presence Near The Woods are my personal favorite tracks.

Rating: 8 After listening to all their albums and thinking "damn I like that but I miss a little something to get back to it", that's it, I have found a Carach Angren that I REALLY like ! Sure the vocals mostly sound like they are from Dimmu Borgir yet the symphony approach is different, a bit more theatrical and that's really nicely done !
