Caladan Brood - Echoes of Battle CD (Northern Silence)
"Echoes of Battle" is the debut album of this newcomer band from Utah/USA, and their songs are the Epic Black Metal
interpretation of Erikson's Malazan books, not unlike what a certain band from Austria created for Tolkien's Middle Earth.
In fact, when you listen to "Echoes of Battle" for the first time you might think you're listening to the new album
of that certain band from Austria, simply because Summoning defined this very style, let's keep calling it Epic Black
Metal, 17 years ago on their "Minas Morgul" album and since then no other band has managed to reach the pinnacle
of perfection Summoning held ever since.

What distinguishes Caladan Brood from a mere copycat is their ability to take what worked for Summoning and
then add their own trademarks to it, such as clean male vocals and choirs or actual guitar solos, and forging all
of this into something truly majestic, thus redefining the term Epic Black Metal in their own unique way, just like
Erikson redefined Epic Fantasy with his books.

And while it's obvious that Summoning have been a tremendous influence for Caladan Brood, for those of you
who, like myself, were waiting in vain for a new Summoning album and by now are ready to welcome an heir
to the throne, for you "Echoes of Battle" may well turn into a 71 (!) min eargasm because it simply can't get
any better than this. Everything on this release, the fantastic music, the great vocals, the massive sound, the
attention to detail, the beautiful artwork by Albert Bierstadt, the poetic lyrics, everything works in tandem to
create an album that will be enjoyed by fans of this style for years to come, and may even end up in many
all-time faves lists. It really is that good!

Now, if your head is spinning from all the superlatives, consider the fact that we're talking
about a band's debut album here, appeared out of nowhere, without a demo or any previous
sign of life. Realize the level of perfection in terms of songwriting and musicianship they have already reached,
and imagine what we may expect from them in the future...
