AELDABORN: Sun Of Melancholy (CD, release: Dec. 2021)
CD housed in a 6-panel premium digipak with 8-page booklet.
A little bit of the old Current 93 here and there, early Blutharsch, Ostara, Ordo Equitum Solis, a few reminiscences of Forseti once in a while, etc., etc.? Martial drums, samples and industrial opulence, delicate folk instrumentation and touching melodies, beautiful and forceful lyrics both in English and German drenched in mysticism and the occult, three good voices (and even Art Abscon's on two songs), etc., etc.? And yet all of it perfectly unique, autonomous, fresh and unheard-of?
I (Michael alias Art Abscon) feel as if I have mixed and mastered a neofolk classic. A classic that is released in 2021. Aeldaborn’s “Sun Of Melancholy”. And, while I am trying not to sound too proud, I think I did an excellent job with the engineering and gave this album the sound it needs.
