ASTARIUM “Drum-Ghoul”

(Symbol Of Domination)

Battle Helm Rating

For some reason I actually thought that I was familiar with this Russian band but apparently I am not. I honestly think I am going insane. I have such a hard time ciphering between fact and fiction these days. This is supposedly symphonic black metal. I gotta say that listening to this it isn’t what I thought it might be. I kinda expected it to be bombastic over the top symphonic but it is much more restraint. In a way this is like a really grim horror story that slowly evolves. It took me a bit getting accustomed to it but once inside the ASTARIUM universe I was intrigued. It is cool to be able to live within the story that this album paints in my head. I don’t know if it’ll do the same to you but give it a chance. Anders Ekdahl
