A5 digipak edition with slipcase and 16 page booklet

The French sextet Dark Sanctuary describe themselves as a band who create “dark atmospheric” music. While this may not be as outstanding as, for instance, Elend’s recent efforts, it is nonetheless worth considering outside that frame of reference, for its purpose appears to be different. A much more linear, tranquil and melodic album, part one of “Exaudi Vocem Meam” is an acoustic record, with some percussion, a lot of guitar, violin and piano, and plenty of angelic female singing. (The third track, “Dein Kalter Stein”, features Schwadorf of Empyrium, Sun of the Sleepless and The Vision Bleak fame on vocals, but that is almost the only male vocal performance on the album). This is a silky smooth album, delicate to the point of fragility at times, “Exaudi Vocem Meam – Part I” can just as easily profit from that unstable balance as it can occasionally become long-winded and falter somewhat. It requires a certain disposition in order to be fully enjoyed. If tragic, darkly romantic atmospheric music, artists such as Elend or Autumn Tears (or to a lesser extent My Dying Bride’s non-metal tracks) pique your interest, then this record should be a very worthwhile addition to your collection.
