Unto Ashes (U.S.A.)
"Saturn Return" CD 2001, Projekt
13.00EUR • approx. 18.9USD [ temp. out of stock ] : [ pre-order ]
The highly anticipated new album by this fascinating band. Unto Ashes successfully cross Goth, Medieval Folk, Ethnic signatures and Neo-Classical music in their material with superb results, stocked with rich instrumentation and excellent vocals.

Like alchemists of a distant past, Unto Ashes effortlessly meld foreboding apocalyptic folk, the warmth of early instruments, the coldness of the electronic age, and the power of the occult. Sensitive and bewitching male and female vocals shine against a hypnotic, unsettling atmosphere of early and arcane instruments. "Saturn Return" is driven by medieval themes and textures coupled with a sense of mystery and enchantment; a perfect continuation of the melancholic, elegant doom which first captivated listeners on their 2000 debut, "Moon Oppose Moon".
Unto Ashes blend ancient texts and original lyrics with startling ingenuity. The album's opening track, "Morte o Merce," weaves an Italian Renaissance sonnet by Francesco Petrarch into a hypnotic Persian dance. From "A Hymn to Pan" (words by Aleister Crowley) and an exotic cover of Coil's "Ostia" - appearing with the enthusiastic blessings of Coil themselves - to the beauty and cruelty of "They Killed Three Little Maids" and the sinuous, club-friendly "Serve Me," Unto Ashes weave an eclectic and compelling tapestry: sublimely beautiful, powerful, intelligent, and occasionally disturbing.
