Nightsky Bequest - _Of Sea, Wind and Farewell_
(X-Rated Records, 2000)
by: Adrian Bromley (9 out of 10)
I was surprised at the first listen of Bulgarian act Nightsky Bequest's release _Of Sea, Wind and Farewell_ -- not for the variety it offered, but for the passion that came with each track. Passion of vibrant proportions that seemed to shine with brilliance as the soft-toned creations of this melodic, acoustic and atmospheric band helped carry things onward. I was smitten by this band from the get-go and it is no surprise that they took their (careful) time in creating and executing such pieces of art. Singer Radoslava Dikanska adds a unique classical element with her vocals on _OSWaF_. Fans of ambient-styled/melodic metal acts will want to scope this out. This band, while not recording a masterpiece like The Gathering's _Mandylion_, have served up a stellar release for us to consume.
