AETERNITAS ”Tales Of The Grotesque”

” Tales Of The Grotesque”

Battle Helm Rating

Lyrically this fifth album from AETERNITAS is based on short stories and poems by Edgar Allan Poe. Everybody familiar with his work knows that it ain’t stories about happy-go-lucky happenings. These are stories that would be perfectly fit for a death metal band but they do also work for a symphonic metal band like AETERNITAS. When I reviewed their previous album I wasn’t too impressed but I gotta say that this time around I am more positive. This still has that Andrew Lloyd Weber feeling I got the last time but it doesn’t annoy me as much this time around. I would label this as musical metal. A whole new sub-genre. Anders Ekdahl
