Emerald Sunsets

Rated 1.75/5 (35%) (4 Votes)

With a name like that, you have to know this band is under the spell of Wolves in the Throne Room, and being a Greek one-man band you have to expect highly melodic, moody music, which is what you get. This is a compilation putting together some single and EP tracks in one place for a special release, and as I had not heard this band before, I was interested. Atmospheric black metal is right up my alley, as are WitTR, so I was hoping this would be good.

It’s okay. Nowhere near the kind of magisterial sweep of their idols, this is much more standard atmospheric stuff that actually doesn’t even have that much atmosphere. I don’t dislike this, but you can miss it.
