The Statue's World

Rated 3/5 (60%) (2 Votes)

Screaming from the Oblivion is a well respected and known band from Russia. Formed back in 1998, they released a couple of demos: On Titan's Way (2000) and The Statue's World (2002). Now Backfire Productions present their official debut full-length, The Statue's World.

This trio is turning into a quartet with the helping hands of Diathra's keyboard player. Their style is described as Gothic/Death Metal, which is pretty accurate. The music on this album was given a good sound production. The drum and bass parts are strong and powerful. Dual vocals with the plaintive and clean ones here and some wicked growls there appear in most songs. The guitar is maybe a bit too reserved compared to the pounding rhythm section. Still, the clean and harmonious playing really helps enhance the melodiousness of their art. Overall, The Statue's World is a clean and pleasant piece of Gothic Music. Some tracks are actually quite fine and more interesting like: "Panic in the Statue's World" and "Thunder and Silence". Also worth mentioning, "Day Before War", an ambient/orchestral number, as well as the intense title track.
