With a pure and intact spirit of revolutionary and vivacious authenticity, the beauty of the harmonies is strikingly absolute. With a creative ordeal that genuinely reinvents the genre in a voracious amplitude of incomparable originality, A Pale December is a group energized by an ardent, placid and ambitious artistic renewal, where a sincere, but at the same time brutally emotional countdown creates a mortuary path of explicit virtuosity, greatly inserted at the crest of an infinite horizon of harmonious correlations, profoundly driven by an actively sophisticated arrangement of musical principles.
An amazing album, with an infuriatingly opaque, but expressively aggrandizing sonorous structure, whose anatomy dissipates in a conflagration of imperiously frivolous vicissitudes a cohesive diagram of beautiful harmonies throughout a solitary universe of marvelous serenity, The Shrine of Primal Fire is a unique state of the art work, that passionately exhibits, one track after another, the overwhelming lucidity of an infinite alignment that sensationally see through eternal abysses of melodically ordained sensibilities the lancinating and dubious color of human apathy, reinstated by the discreet melancholy of a life that searches for a way out of the dark.
Combining an amazing string of ordinary atmospheric BM with a more glorious, original, poetic and sensitive degree of creative elements – sometimes flirting with a very avant-garde musical proposition –, without losing its voracious and brutal verve, The Shrine of Primal Fire, by A Pale December, is an amazingly true and glorifying masterpiece. One of the best albums of the genre that you will have the chance to hear in your lifetime! Be sure about that.
