Gothic / Black Metal from Turkey (Ankara) with some great songs: The Witch of Ancient Plains, Through the Eternal Darkness, A Dream in the Tears of Night, Afterglow…
A perfect sound that is arranged in a progressive way, all the characteristics of Black Metal is awaiting us: from fast blast beat drums to sparkling keyboard parts; from scream vocals to melodic parts..
LOST INFINITY – “Lament Of Dusk” (self-released)
Oh my, what a music! After keyboard intro Turkish sextet start with killing black metal histery.
Maniacaly scream vocal compete with melodic and fluid guitars right on the edge of insanity.
After that in the “game” jumps extraterrestrial gentle soprano vocal, done by charming darkhair Zeynep.
20 minutes of unexpectible and thrilling moments.
Young Turks are very much musicaly skilled and they incorporated some medieval European (why not oriental, too??) musical ornaments and melodies that makes artistic creation that you must admire, even if you are the slave of prejudices that says “Good metal can be played in USA, Germany, Norway and Sweden only”.
Lyrics (in English) are inspired by “classical” BM themes: spirits of ancient warriors and kings, fight with the power of mother Nature, enchanted forests, relief that only death can brings.
MCD is recorded in 2001 and on CD you can find 4 excellent songs and video clip for the best of them – “A Dream in the Tears of Night”.
What impressed me the most was their lead vocals. Screaming Vocals adorned with some brutal, carried out the burden of all the pieces with out any hesitation. Their EP Laments of Dusk is on sale now, not buying it would be a harm that you do to yourself. Black groups whom appear to us with names and image, don’t listen to Lost Infinity, you won’t be able to sleep; compared to them the music you make will look funny even to you…
