Rakoth - _Jabberworks_
by: Vincent Eldefors (
The Russian band Rakoth managed to create one of the most innovative debut albums ever in late 1999 [CoC #45] and were rewarded with an interview here in Chronicles of Chaos [#46]. Tale-like lyrics and vocals, beautiful melodies with flutes, clean male vocals and black metal vocals painted a very impressive soundscape that managed to entrance thousands of people all over the world, including myself. I was therefore very eager to listen to their new material, and I was not to be disappointed, because Rakoth have proved once again that they are one of the most creative newcomers on the metal scene. Now that they have found their way to Earache Records through their new sublabel Elitist, their music will be available to a much larger crowd. Those metal fans who want the genre to develop and experience new fresh sounds should go check out Rakoth right away. _Jabberworks_ also features a real orchestra which Rakoth added to their own unconventional sound, allowing them to create the perfect follow-up to _Planeshift_. This is pure art crafted with real passion, which is very rare in today's music business.
