Carach Angren
Where the
Corpses Sink Forever


Carach Angren is definitely a one of a kind band from its unorthodox perspective into urban legends and chilling ghostly tales with a dark symphonic black metal atmosphere. Their music has the very uniqueness of beauty, brutality, and mystery that really makes for a complimenting album. I believe that Carach Angren's 2012 album "Where the Corpses Sink Forever" does not lack that one slight bit. 

When you listen to this album, it really doesn't feel as if you're listening to a normal black metal song, it's more of a ballet/musicial production with an insanely dark undertone. The symphonic aspect was tremendously impressive. You have an assortment of violins, organs, etc. playing wildly increasing the intensity of each song. 

The vocals are quite amazing as well, having the harsh vocals set in the craziness, but having cleaner vocals fitting along side of them as well as the occasional solo so even the less 'heavier'-metal enthusiast can comprehend and understand what is going on as well.
This is definitely a very impressive album, and I recommend anyone who is even a slight Black Metal fan to check out this band. Who knows? It may even be your new favorite.
