No Perder La Fe. Publicado por Kain Steel Hammer en 3 comentarios:. Etiquetas: -metalMusica. Para continuar con la maravillosa obra presentada por la banda italianaAinurvoy a publicar el tercer y ultimo trabajo publicado por la banda hasta el momento.
Por su longitud extensa, lo subi en dos partes el CD 1 y el CD2. Publicado por Kain Steel Hammer en 1 comentario:. Para continuar compartiendo esta maravillosa obra musical, basada en el famoso Silmarillion de J. This album is of course poetical, epic, for sure concept and so on, but how it is about music itself actually? There are parts where you can certainly feel Opera, except forementioned Symphonic elements, you can also experience neat guitar solos, mood parts especially Before The Throne is full of them.
I don't hope, I certainly know for sure that I will eventually like this album more in future. But take this review as words from someone who listened to this few times and is only in the beginning of the journey. There are weaker parts, there are very good ones too, in average it doesn't make average, but high quality album. As we're used to from Ainur.
Review by apps79 Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator. Forget about the Classic Italian Prog sound here. I'm not really fond of the following male operatic vocals. Despite they are also qualitive,they seem to bore me a bit along the way. AINUR do that well at some point,though most of the tracks sound quite similar. Metal riffing and intense vocals support this claim. Yet the balance seems a bit lost trying to listen to the album in its full version.
Calm spacey,classical or medieval parts are mixed with almost metal music and that's not the best thing I can face. The band is talented,no question about it. The problem is that music in here is quite similar in moments,a bit too calm for most of its part,while this Tolkien adaptions-thing seems too old- fashioned for me.
However,I believe these musicians can do much better things in the future and I will support them with a 3 star rating. Recommended,considering always the afore- mentioned warnings. These elements works in music too, because there's strange kind of harmony excuse me, it's new for me to hear music inspired by book between these two. Yeah, um, it works actually quite easy.
I hear this music, first feeling that I'll have to laugh a little bit, but then I say to myself: "Why not, I mean, this works good, even it's not gothic choir, but rather bunch of merry elves singing together songs of joy". But in a very good way. And holes. And empty spaces, deaf parts of certain songs.
That's it, LOTR is simply interesting franchise. I don't know it master Tolkien predicted this, or even wanted to be all this commercial, but talking The Hound Of Valinor - Ainur (2) - Lay Of Leithian (CD inspiration for music, it's OK.
And we all know that Rock Progressivo Italiano, The Hound Of Valinor - Ainur (2) - Lay Of Leithian (CD least its modern form is suitable for all kind of music, themes, moods and capable of transcending the genres. One word, Collosus Project, this band really reminds me it, except they're devoted just for J. Reurel's work. And they're doing it fine. Guitar solos, strong element here.
For example Spaghetti Epic'sthis is similar, except completely different setting, but way how to do it is the same. Bad thing is that I don't complete story and don't want to spoil it by reading these infos and hints. Nope, all I need is a good depiction of Middle-Earth atmosphere and as far as I can tell, they quite made it.
Victorian, or Baroque opera-like singing underlines it, tens of instruments also see Mandalaband's second album? From time to time, I decide to add half a star here and there, or take it from some albums, depending on how good the music sounds like after some time passes bye.
And I think I like this album more and more. There's almost no "sound" bad, no tone done in a way. You still don't expect where the stream will take you, but you feel weird, familiar feeling.
Let's embrace it, don't hesitate. Ainur, a 18 pieces band, is another band inspired by J. Tolkien's 'The Silmarillion'. And this is normal, today unfortunately. The Hound Of Valinor - Ainur (2) - Lay Of Leithian (CD band sung in English and for me not plays RPI in a strong sense. Is this a problem for a correct evalutation? Maybe yes or maybe no Because I can not able to evaluate this situation, The Hound Of Valinor - Ainur (2) - Lay Of Leithian (CD.
In fact Ainur not plays true Prog. In my mind this music sound as Opera Music! Strange that the weight of cello, harps or flute are minimal when the electric guitars or synths have a good weight too weight for electric guitar and it is strange also that in some passges the music is also Power Metal more for rhythms, style of vocals and structure.
It is not strange the production style, extreme close to 70's. My vision of Ainur's music is not totally bad. But I haven't a positive view for Ainur. Certainly 'From Ancient Times' is a good album that is easy to listen but that have few true Prog moments.
Insignificant is the Italian tradition of Prog and in my opinion technique is the only true word for a correct description and view about this album. In this sense I think that Rick Wakeman is a good comparison also if Rick's music is too better but I can not judge because this statement is prepared by my mind!
In my personal view 18 musicians for this type of music is too as number of musicians. Also because too are the voices, not all used correctly with a good weight, more correctly. Now I think that Ainur is a The Hound Of Valinor - Ainur (2) - Lay Of Leithian (CD band with good music, this is a correct judge. But not totally Prog. Sure if you love Prog Ainur is a band for you and in a correct view Ainur is a Prog band.
Review by erik neuteboom Prog Reviewer. The music is performed by musicians who use a wide range of instruments, from harp, violin, French horn, clarinet and flute to keyboards and many male and female singers like a bass bariton. The amount of classical instruments is a strong indication what we can expect from Ainur during the 13 songs on Children Of Hurin.
CD: The first composition Morgoth's Prophecy is an impressive start, we can enjoy lots of dynamics between the classical instruments and the electric guitar and sensational Minimoog synthesizer flights, layered with classically trained vocals.
The other 11 songs also deliver a blend of classic and progrock music with the emphasis a bit more on classical.
