ELFFOR - Son Of The Shades [Northern Silence] (CD w/ Bonus Tracks)
Spain | Ambient/Black
Reissue of Elffor's 2nd album with new artwork and incl. 2 exclusive bonus tracks.
This is the reissue of Elffor's 2nd album which was originally released on cd in 2002, limited to only 500 copies and has since become pretty sought after and very hard to track down. On the follow-up to the non-Metal debut Elffor's Medieval Black Ambient now comes distinctly more metallic, with heavy guitars where formerly reigned synthesizers unchallenged. This gives the majestic songs with their fantastic middle ages feeling a more powerful appearance, which often reminds of the mighty Summoning, though mastermind E_l knows how to effortlessly keep Elffor's special style throughout the whole album and make it palpable every second of the one hour playing time.
Just as the debut reissue the new version of "Son Of The Shades" comes improved in every fiber - all songs have been rerecorded/remastered, two brand new bonus tracks have been composed exclusively for this reissue and of course the cover art and booklet come with completely new, improved design, once again done by Basconian Warrior Igor Mugerza.
