Flame, Dear Flame - "The Millennial Heartbeat Part I" (audio)

Ο δίσκος των Flame, Dear Flame - "Aegis"
No sound, only silence.
We are unbound by your hands.
We are born in twilight,
All forlorn,
Only rumbling from
A heartbeat long ago.

Who brought the blight,
Senses all impaired
And who caused the fright?
Flow time would gather,
By a caprice of nature?
Who started the race,
Headed by him who
Banished the grace?
Never will we know,
Our invocation was
A heartbeat long ago.

The life you gave to us
Was merely the start,
A legion none will ever know.
Unending wisdom we found,
The ancient heart,
That we felt beating down below,
Long ago.

No light for the eye to see
And we denied gravity.
We are born in twilight,
All forlorn,
Only rumbling from
A heartbeat long ago.

Νέο συγκρότημα οι Flame, Dear Flame. Σχηματίσθηκαν προ τετραετίας στην Γερμανία. Μπάντα επικού doom metal (έτσι τουλάχιστον "υπογράφει"), η οποία είναι έτοιμη να κυκλοφορήσει το ντεμπούτο της.

Φέρει τον τίτλο "Aegis", έχει προγραμματισθεί να "βγει" στην καρδιά του καλοκαιριού κι ουσιαστικά αποτελείται από δύο συνθέσεις: την τριλογία "The Millennial Heartbeat" (που την απαντήσαμε στο ομότιτλο ep - demo που κυκλοφόρησε πρόπερσι) και την τετραλογία "The Wolves and the Prioress".

Η ακρόαση του εναρκτήριου "The Millennial Heartbeat Part I" με προετοίμασε για τα καλύτερα και μου δημιούργησε προσδοκίες...

Δελτίο τύπου: «In the year 2017 in the north-central German city of Brunswick, the covenant of Flame, Dear Flame was invoked.

Providing a staggering take on the most epic form of what can loosely be categorized as Doom Metal, Flame, Dear Flame manage to fuse a sonic palette that features delicate, melancholy sections of clean guitars and restrained percussion with monumental, crushing epic doom.

On their debut album "Aegis", Flame, Dear Flame have erected a truly distinct sound, characterized by the stirring performance of vocalist Maren Lemke, whose simultaneously airy yet powerful voice fuses with the memorable riff craft on display to create 7 towering tracks that are sure to capture the ears of listeners eager to hear an innovative take on a genre that too often conforms to stereotypes.

"Aegis" is a work thematically divided into two parts. The first part, entitled "The Millennial Heartbeat", details the genesis of the ocean and the thanatography of the land, a testimony of the forces of nature and its frailty alike, performed in three movements and featuring a classical epic doom approach, rife with gargantuan riffs and percussion as well as soaring clean vocals, yet interspersed with thoughtfully placed and paced clean sections.

Serving as a contrasting and complimentary second part of the album, "The Wolves and the Prioress" consists of four movements focusing more on acoustic folk elements, further enriching Flame, Dear Flame's engrossing sound, and details the story of a feral child that falls into the custody of a sage prioress.

All of these elements result in a unique combination of righteous doom and subtle, yet noble acoustic folk. Each track is accompanied by a visual representation composed by Karmazid.

The culmination of the album’s visuals is its stark cover artwork, laden with elegant symbolism in rich detail, created by Kodex Barbaricus. According to the band, "Aegis" will be presented in full at Storm Crusher Festival as soon as rescheduling due to the pandemic permits.»
