The Ukrainian company has given shelter by the Hypotic Dirge label, which in my opinion quite highly regarded. A label that often enough it not afraid to experiment, as Odradek Room on debut album Bardo. Relative Reality . Of course I will try right to label so you know right or you should read. Further this band here The best fit is progressive / avant garde doom metal.

Are you still on? Beautiful, then this movement at least your interest and I will elaborate further on what we get presented here. On the basis of this music death / doom is like My Dying Bride making, but that's not all. Theatre Of Forms might start with strings that do about thinking, still follows the band a distinct path with room for hypnotic guitar melodies between the heavier pieces by almost did not look out of place on a plate of Mike Oldfield. Also chosen to depart process. Influences of shoegaze and prog metal from the beaten path This maybe the atmosphere remains gloomy but sometimes hope glimmers through.

The singer knows effortless to operate an emotional grunt. Themselves but his clean vocals are definitely a strong weapon which he makes heavy use. Also spoken pieces, such as during the start of A Painting (Digging Into The Canvas With Oil) , no. miss their effect This is capped with a piece below that of Alcest could have come before you again find elements back from the experimentation of the old Pink Floyd .

Of course I can talk about for a long time, but I really hope the fans after the second paragraph the music started to look up, because this band just has to be heard. So these men responsible for more than a surprising debut.
