Ador Dorath - Adon Nin Edeleth
Ador Dorath from the Czech republic have sent us their Adon Nin Edeleth Cd. This band contains seven members, so the quick minded could perhaps figure this one out: It's about symphonic black metal. Ador Dorath hasn't missed any of the vital ingredients for making this kind of metal - whispering voices/vocals, female vocals, violin, cello, and of course there is the keyboard.
The tracks on Adon Nin Edeleth contain heavy and mighty eposes. Spontaneously I think of The Cradle Of Filth Vempire - Dark Fairytales Of Phallufstein Mcd. There is kind of the same intensity and arrangements, especially regarding the vocal parts, booth the darker and the female vocals. Maybe I shouldn't draw to many parallels between these mentioned bands, since Ador Dorath have something more than Cradle Of Filth. Aggression, to be precise. I think that Ador Dorath has the strength to stand on their own feet, as they are very skilled musicians. And they are able to do these unexpected things in their arrangements and song writing, like on the Garden Of Earthly Pleasures for example. A plus also for the good production. Not to high keyboards, that usually are present when it's about this kind of metal, and tend to be "drowning" the whole soundpicture.
After all this is an ok album, but to be honest this type of black metal perhaps isn't my cup of tea. But everyone deserves a chance, and Ador Dorath do their thing well. So if you liked the older Cradle Of Filth and are into bands like Dimmu Borgir or Elvira Madigan, you surely will enjoy this one.
