LORD AGHEROS "Hymn "

Evangelou Gerassimos proves to have several interesting ideas, especially as he performed in the last twelve years under various other names. About his background and activities you can find all kind of details on the official site, the important thing as far as I'm concerned is to make some references regarding his music. The mixture between Black, Gothic and Ambient may be pleasant when you first listen to the album moreover this material has a considerable length and complexity. Very melodic, diverse, and saturated in various daily sound elements, with many mixing and remixing interferences on certain sequences, "Hymn" seems to be an odd demo, unveiling a sound that I never have the opportunity to experience before! The battery is linear, while the guitar uncovers the fact that we are dealing with a solo project. The keyboard and the piano are intelligently played, and moreover the normal calm voices create a melancholic atmosphere, a dreamy one, that is ruptured from time to time by the aggressive sequences, with their damn violent voice and killing guitar riffs. More than Experimental, LORD AGHEROS presents us along his eleven tracks, for over forty minutes, a music risen from everywhere and heading towards anywhere, throughout the inspirational slot, but there is still some work needed in order to harmonize the tracks. It was a pleasant surprise though!
