MORGENSTERN "Rauch"

I have a difficult time to understand why so much often Metal is combined with traditional Folk parts in a manner with no epic structure, which is actually the required equilibrium of musical composition. Right after IN EXTREMO launched a new trend, latest bands seem to jam of duplicating such direction. MORGENSTERN is at the third release under Napalm label and the one to be the best so far. As far as I am regarded, this mixture of Metal with Folk Medieval, Power or even Punk on a Gothic Rock skeleton disgusts me because it is nothing but a storm in a glass! I am not fascinated of such and I don't think I'll ever be! The voices feature German messages, flute and clarinet are notable from the very first tunes, and guitars don't excel in virtuosity while the battery seems ad infinitum to fall asleep. I find it dried out, with no colour and probably this album might get pleasing solely to disciples of such style. So, at first was "Feuertaufe", then "Heute ist die Rache mein" and now this new material followed and I believe it is certainly dedicated to German Metal fans!
