Elegeion - _Odyssey Into Darkness_
(Candlelight, 1998)
by: Adrian Bromley (6 out of 10)
Images of The Gathering and Within Temptation came to mind after numerous listens of this disc. Comprised of doom-ladden song structures, yet sedated with solemn soft-styled choir vocals, the music of Elegeion is nothing new to us metal fans. This is music we have heard time after time, but something about this music draws us in. The gems discovered within this somewhat cliche genre/style of music is the way that Elegeion use their simplistic, haunting melodies and the enchanted/darkened dreamlike song sequences to entice us to give this a second go. This is a rather soothing experience to say the least. This 3-song, 24-minute EP could have been boring, had it not been for the injection of creative song writing here and there. Good enough for me and a band to keep note of.
