Hypnotic Dirge Records decided to follow the second musical project concocted by Count De Efrit (just after the Ekove Efrits ), and so we find ourselves in the hands of the monicker the debut Silent Path . The disc does not surprise me too much to tell the truth, the project seems to be born as a "safety valve" of the artist who tries in every way to create a soporific music and painful. Efforts are always appreciated and Mourner Portraits a sufficient (albeit far-fetched) can take it home, the target of the feeling, the most important once you understand the purpose of the disc is centered, but worry remains apathetic aura that I able to shake off. The route is also quite long (52 minutes) and if the concentration is not home is perhaps best to avoid listening outset. This release is inspired by Count De Efrit-too-without even bothering to Burzum , the combination of voice / keyboard immediately brings to mind the period Filosofem but the concrete result of this Mourner Portraits is queued to the outputs depressive latest and weather (and touched keys and melodic funeral doom metal) where it could be trapped for life. But the artist there brings commitment and passion (found thanks to a trademark that suffering and research that now characterize it) and patience if this time is set to not work too much, to the detriment of the piece instead took "alone" that seems (to me at least ) have better luck in court. When you can not speak debut for the artist you can do for the name Silent Path , and if this is a new way, a different way of composition and approach is to be hoped and look to the future with confidence. Excellent work chart that gives a good idea of what we're going to listen, Mourner Portraits is finally a bit like a challenge, a musical journey that want to transport the listener to the feeling of the zeroing . I already know that it will become one of those jobs that I'm going to continue to try to better understand, her being pregnant "of dark and atmospheric insanity" makes the charm you feed continuously from just beyond everything.
