What the fuck is this? A double CD clocking in at 97 minutes spread over four songs. If that won’t turn into a long ride I am not sure what will. Well that long ride seemed a lot shorter. The 97 minutes are over before you notice it. Vin De Mia Trix possesses the art of keeping longs songs interesting. The band operates in the realm of melodic death doom metal. Musically they remind me quite a bit of Officium Triste, Mourning Beloveth and Saturnus, but then quite a bit more tranquil and subdued, almost post rock like. Hence also reminding me of Kauan. Which in itself is not strange given the fact Alex Vynogradoff is also part of Kauan and plays the bass and acoustic guitar here and also does the vocals.
Fans of the aforementioned bands will do well to give ‘Palimpsests’ a chance.
