Arkh'aam - _The Blue Beyond the Black_
(Independent, 1999)
by: Adrian Bromley (8 out of 10)
This French duo have quite a good project on their hands. The music is rich in complexity and vividness. And the ideas streaming from this release? Too many too count, but oh how they compliment one another. From slow guitar strumming and head busting drum pounding to hyper active banshee wails and aggressive overtones -- not to mention flute playing --, Arkh'aam play out a masterful array of songs that wind together so passionately. Within three acts -- The Involution, The Summoning and The Evolution --, the band showcases a constant love affair for all things dark and it comes to the surface time in and time out. It's the true vindication of masterful musicians that makes this release glow so brightly when in reality shrouded in darkness. A perfect tale told by guys with talent.
