Of Art And Suffering
Melodic Death Metal from Suomi. Luckily, NOCTURNAL WINDS don’t try to copy IN FLAMES or CHILDREN OF BODOM, though. “Of Art…” is not quite as accessible, the melodies are more melancholic, more Finish I guess. This gives the album a certain depth and therefore makes it a good alternative for people into Melodic Death who are getting bored by all those IN FLAMES clones. Although NOCTURNAL WINDS don’t refrain from using keyboards, it never sounds cheap’n’cheasy! Special tip: the 9-minute-track ‘Choir Of Shadows’. Killer! This well produced fine piece of music should make the aforementioned rush to a record store immediately!
