Wind, heavy rain, electromagnetism, October Falls all over the place out there and A Collapse Of Faith is more than an obligation to start whirling in here once again, in perfect harmony with the weather task outdoors. You may label the album any way you like, but the main idea is melodic black metal (this doesn't always mean commercial!) with a doom essence, a folk/ambient aura, an epic touch and pictures of rain.
The cover artwork consists of a marriage of the impenetrable forest's grandeur with the infinite sky, there where they greet one another, somewhere inbetween. This is where you will find yourself floating, in the bliss of earthly treasures and the sky's everlasting stare amidst the schemes of the flying birds. Shades of grey, everywhere, but fear not, A Collapse Of Faith is about to paint the landscape with its sound colours, darkening but warm ones, before dusk, bringing forth nostalgic, melancholic but friendly tunes to adorn your world.
Every single sound partaking in the final outcome plays its own important role and without its pressence there would be something missing. The guitars always enrich the soundscape with unuttered doses of melody, whether they sound more massive or present a more fragile side, balancing somewhere between uprising riffing, harmonic melodies and acoustic moments, escalating the emotional charge or bleakening it through a nostalgic prism. The rhythm section paces in the same way, you will find it strengthening even more the already dynamically burdened atmosphere or just hold together the compositions, even slowly drown as the ambiance vanishes its imposing vibes. Some slight keyboard ideas with a floating crescendo and some piano passages that overwhelm mind and soul along with the rain samples consist of the salt & pepper of A Collapse Of Faith and the howling shrieks entrance the falling sky so as to reach greater heights, for woe shall echo forever inside the cosmic corridors.
October Falls' A Collapse Of Faith is a fabulous album, a haunting experience of sunset and dusk colours deep in the woods as they reach for the sky, the birth and the hearse of creation.
Highlights: I, II, III, I, II, III, I, II, III ... I, II, III.
