Staff review by

The Swedish quartet of Siebenbürgen after having released two demos, "Siebenbürgen" and "Ungentum Pharelis", signed a contract with Napalm Records and their debut album "Loreia" saw the light of day (or maybe the glowing moonlight?) during 1997. Black metal played the Norwegian way according to the guitar riffing (following more melodic soundscapes) and the howls along with beautiful-sounding ethereal female vocals and violin pieces evoking visions of the night (both the female vocals and the violin pieces are performed by Lovisa Hallestedt) consist of "Loreia" which is lyrically based (as every Siebenbürgen release) on vampires, the lovers of the Night. The lyrics are in Swedish and most of them are written by Mara Puurunen, the ethereal female figure on the dark mystic cover of "Loreia", a wonderful vampiric melodic black metal release.

Is this just a band, or something more? I say more; this is one of the most underrated melodic black metal bands. Not so many know it or listen to it, but it's one of the greatest in the genre. This album is an excellent masterpiece full of great melodies and arrangements.
