Forty-five minutes long, Scintilla has eight tracks: 1) Carrossel; 2) Esquizo; 3) Sparkles; 4) Reverie; 5) Alvor; 6) Balada; 7) Arruda; 8)Faux Pas; with a beautiful and delicate, though veraciously abrasive musical layout, Catacombe’s digressive and impenitent, but sensible style circulates within the framework of its own everlasting fugacity, displaying a serenity that navigates in the introspective gracefulness of a more dilated rereading of reality. With a robust artistic cosmogony that not only defines the density and the virtuosity of its style, but comprehends the essence of its technical extension, Catacombe presents itself as a very confident and experienced band, that really knows for sure what they have to do, to achieve what they are searching in artistic elements.
Despite the fact that the band, mostly, stays in the conventional territories of the genre, they are exceptionally talented. The group’s musicality displays an abrasive heaviness and a moderate, though genuine savagery, that not only enlarges their creative possibilities, but also dissipates its disillusioned melancholy beyond the diffusive peripheries of a very organic, clean and salutary sound, whose disruptive dynamism definitely extends over the oblique ocean of artistic pragmatic tendencies the frozen acquiescence that revolves around the original strength of such beautiful and mordacious poetic tonalities.
With decisively gentle guitar lines – that incorporates brutal and hazardous elements in the most belligerent passages – circulating under the vicinities of gracefully distinct and somber harmonies, Scintilla gradually reveals itself as a marvelous conception of tempestuous, but exceptionally cozy atmospheres, that elegantly defines in the boundaries of its impeccable style an interesting and splendidly captivating musical tenderness, whose practical sensibility fluctuates freely, and spontaneously gravitates towards the heart of the listener. Definitely, this is a fantastic album, that displays an extraordinarily sensitive creative abundance, that aggregates a more pungent, vital and organic musical ordeal into the genre.
