Silent Stream Of Godless Elegy could write a textbook for other bands on how to evolve your music. There's a delicate balance between moving forward exploring new elements vs. just changing your style, and this band has found that balance. Put simply: Silent Stream Of Godless Elegy gets better with every release. Their latest album, Návaz, is a crowning step in the exciting evolution of a unique band.

Melody 8???? More like over 9000!

Honestly, I've never heard such incredible violins in metal! And the leads vocals are incredible, her voice is angelic and her accent is just sexy...goddamn this album is awesome.

Rating: 10 STILL my album of the year. Wow, since it came out in January it really set the bar high and so far nothing has surpassed it.

It's beautiful and unique. It's full of colors, it's full of dynamic and texture changes and impeccable performances by all. It's well programmed. It's full of so many emotions and moods and all things wonderful yet still manages to be so seamless and streamlined.

Just checking in to say how much this album got somehow EVEN better with time

  It's probably the only album I never get tired of. I'll have to write it down for one of those "what would you take with you to a deserted island" questions. I liked their previous work but never expected it to get this good. Still a bit befuddled by such low ratings, though. I sincerely hope they don't put anyone off cuz even if you aren't into folksy metal (and I see myself at quite the opposite side of this spectrum) you cannot deny quality music when you hear it. You know it's good when folks have such different views on what the best song is.

Rating: 9 This band just gets better and better with each album. This one is simply magnificent. Everything is beautiful about it - beautiful melodies, beautiful vocals, beautiful lyrics and my favourite beautiful violin.

Rating: 8 This is by no means an album that is hard to get into but since I'm no more into albums that are not guitar driven it took me more than three listens to really appreciate it. The folk parts and the vocals are what makes this so good whereas the metal side is rather dull except for some moments "Dva Stíny Mám"
All in all this is more than good
