Immundus "Poemia"


Immundus, a dark ambient artist from Portugal/Norway, released a single album called Poemia. The main inspiration behind this album is the infamous Edgar A. Poe and his literary. The single album consist of three songs:

1. The Sleeper
2. Alone
3. Spirits of the Dead

The album is available for download at the website at the end of this review. This is some really dark ambient music and I really dig it a lot. Very creepy and desolate. It's best to be listened while you're alone and in a dark room to really let the atmosphere impact you the way it's meant to be. The guy is definitely very talented and he released many albums before this single album. One thing that would've been cool is if he made this into a concept album. At first I was pretty hesitant when I heard it's inspired by Poe's writings since that's been done many times in past but I do like this perspective on the writings and focus more on the atmosphere that Poe pulled really well in his writings. If you pay attention to his writings, it's all about what's happening around the character. Same concept applies to this album which is what I really enjoyed. This guy really get what Poe's works was all about. Recommended for anyone who dig horror related music or ambient genre.

Best Song:Spirits of the Dead-my favorite and I can not stop listening to this song. Absolutely dark and beautiful.

Worst Song: Alone- still great song but I tend to listen to Spirits of the Dead much more often.

Score:8/10

Hi there !

SURTR has just added a new song after 1000 plays of the part I of our "World of doom" concept. It has been recorded at the same time of our first demo. Check that online : www.myspace.com/surtrdoom

DOOOOOOOM OVER THE WORLD !!!!

" If great riffs is whats needed for a quality doom metal then this track comes pretty close. Nothing original musically but a fine dose of doom writing just the same, they follow the blueprint of doom metal to the letter here but it is done with integrity and some passion to make a track that demands repeated spins. "
8/10, DoomMantia
