Two years after the quite good Lammendam, Carach Angren come back to haunt us with their second album.
Haunt? Yes, as once again this album is a ghost story. This time, the Netherlanders tell us all about their most famous dead countryman: The Flying Dutchman. Well, OK, said Dutchman is not really a man… It's a ship. A ghost one, of course.

I saw this album the first time in a metal magazine and thought: "Man, what a cool cover." Not many bands can manage a good cover with the musicians on it, but this was something that blew me away from the first sight. Obviously, Carach Angren seem to be young ambitious guys having an original corpsepaint and looking full of certainty directly to the listener, not to mention that the whole scenery matches perfectly with the title Death Came Through A Phantom Ship. So my interest was piqued and I gave a listen to what they streamed in the internet. It took me not more than a minute and the decision to get the entire album was made.

Well, I gave it enough time. And I'm absolutely sure that it doesn't deserve 10.
It's just a mediocre album in a good style. And completely forgetable...

Awesome album. One of the best 2010 has to offer (probably). Great atmosphere, and very nice blend of darkness and beauty. I just can't stop listening to it. Heard it 5 times today. Very good, especially The Shining was a Portent of Gloom, The Course of a Spectral Ship, The Sighting was a Portent of Doom and of course the atmospheric interlude Al Betekend het Mijn Dood.

I guess you never heard of opinions. I can easily say your opinion is bullshit too (which I won't, because I respect other people's opinions).

One of the most original and well thought of concepts for a symphonic black metal album. They really thought out each song and it's representation in the album. I personally liked And the Consequence Macabre and Departure Towards a Nautical Curse the best.

I am aware this comment is years old, but have you not heard In the Nightside Eclipse? Far Away from the Sun? There are so many classics that did this stuff way earlier and way darker. Not knocking you or the album, but you should broaden your horizons. There is a lot to explore.

Yeah I know man there are many other good sympho black albums maybe better than that one too, but I just love that album so much so my comment doesn't really mean it's better than any other album it just came out of passion!
