Rising Shadows - _Found in the Cold_
(Twilight Records, 2009)
by: Quentin Kalis (7 out of 10)
Rising Shadows cannot be considered as a metal band, not even in the post-Mortiis universe, but mastermind Fredrik Klingwall has substantial credentials in metal due to his keywork in a litany of bands. Plus, bassist Guillaume le Huche was once part of Katatonia, whom some of our readers may be familiar with. However, his bass work is subsumed by an array of dreamy keys and delicate sub-operatic vocals. Klingwall maintains a similar fragmented approach as with his solo project, but works better in an ethereal rather than neoclassical context, where the abbreviated songs can be seen as audio expressions of dream: fleeting yet vivid encounters that quickly slip through our fingers without a wilful act of remembrance. Those familiar with similar-minded acts on the Cold Meat Industry label are most likely to appreciate this little gem.
