Bal Sagoth - Starfire Burning upon the Ice-Veiled Throne of Ultima Thule

  | CD

Bal Sagoth-Starfire Burning upon the Ice-Veiled Throne of Ultima Thule The layout is extremely impressive and it really motivates me before I start to listen to the album. And what music! And what lyrics! Is "perfect" a suitable word? For a start, the lyrics are the best I have ever read. Instead of the usual lyrics where something is being described by a few words, Lord Byron has created stories. In fact, he does not sing all the lyrics and that is even more interesting. You see, you get two packages in one (and one interactive CD ROM track): the mentioned lyrics (stories from an age of swordsmen and magicians), and the music. The music is the perfect soundtrack for such lyrics. I can almost feel the battles as the song passes by. The use of keyboards is pure magic in my ears. And as a top of the iceberg, the production is so strong. Altogether this turned out to be one of the three best albums of 1996. And the interview done by Lord Byron, what is there to say except for "indescribable" which is very describable after all? Nothing, just buy and listen and take a trip to other times...
