Em Sinfonia - _In Mournings Symphony_
(Martyr Music, 1999)
by: Adrian Bromley (9 out of 10)
To call this great would be an understatement. How about amazing? Stunning? Unbelievable? The list could go on, and it probably would for another ten or more adjectives, but the bottom line here is that Em Sinfonia have stumbled upon something great here. Fans of The Gathering, My Dying Bride and Moonspell take note, there is a new kid in town and you better keep your chops up or you could be dethroned. With masterful precision and some of the best melding of doom/gloom sounds, strong guitar riffs, violins, spoken word and choir-like chantings in the past few years, Em Sinfonia glides its way into our hearts and minds with tales of love, darkness and life. Powerful expressionism streams from this four-song release, basking in brilliant production (thanks to guitarist/producer Brian Griffin) and showing off the talent of this well-rounded group of musicians (eight in all). While all four songs are superb, the power and passion of what the band is capable of is showcased strongly within the title track. A prime example of musical creativity in top form. Get a copy of this before all your friends have it. You don't want to be the loser of the bunch now, do you? Didn't think so. Find it.
