Cirith Gorgor - _Unveiling the Essence_
(Osmose, 2001)
by: Kirsty Buchanan (3 out of 10)
Now you too can be the proud owner of a limited edition album; one which surpasses all others -- at last what we've all been crying out for: an album recorded in a biscuit tin! A poor attempt at production leaves the band with the narrowest window of aural level in which to frolic. A simple equation reveals that Dutch musical ineptitude plus having read "Lord of the Rings" recently does not a good album make. There is no excuse for the release of such unadulterated rubbish as this. I can find no redeeming factor warranting any word of praise. I make here a few personal appeals: to the vocalist, buy some throat medicine as you are grating your vocal cords unnecessarily. To the lead guitarist, I feel you may be in the wrong band as your style is not in keeping with the others. To the drummer and the rhythm guitarist, can you tap your head and rub your belly at the same time? I thought not. The final track, "Visions of a Distant Past", sounds like the theme for Seventies children's TV programme "Trumpton" or "Camberwick Green". Cirith Gorgor; look out folks, here comes Windy Miller.
