Review


This is the fourth album from Czech band Heiden, who are clearly working the Pagan/Black/Folk/post-Metal end of the pool. I haven't heard their earlier works, so I can't compare, but I think this is pretty dull. I don't mind the unassuming, post-rock guitar tone so much, but could they at least play some good riffs with it? This is pretty much like the newer Enslaved albums, only maybe 25% less annoying. I'd like to find more good things to say about this, but there just isn't much that stands out about it at all, good or bad. You won't hate this, but even after 3 or 4 spins I just don't find anything compelling about it at all. It's listenable, but that's as far as it goes.


Track Listing:
  1. Nostalgia Echo
  2. Catharsis
  3. Triad
  4. At a Funeral
  5. Thujone
  6. Post Lux Tenebras
  7. Monomania
  8. Buried 100 Years Ago
