With five tracks – The Den of Wolves, Sirens, Ascension, Arctic Eclipse and I Troldskog Faren Vild (Ulver cover) – the style of the work follows a more conventional approach to the genre. Nevertheless, the technical quality, the genuine essence and the great dedication perceived in each and every note of the album marvelously propitiates the listener the wonderful grace of wandering through the sinister fields of another world.
With generally calmer melodies, and the astounding reverberation of a silent nothingness that was forgotten in a world that does not exist anymore, Sirens is a surprising work in a lot of consecutive levels: the sound is sinister, inspired and precisely dense, the guitar lines are overwhelmingly pungent, but diluted, and Morke reunites with masterful precision the strength of its own lucid creativity with the greatest traditional devices of the genre.
An album filled with authentic and incredible melodies, that really know how to extract beauty from evaporating dark contingencies, Sirens transports the listener to a very distant and imprecise time, to places of unpredictable poetic majesty. In a more singular sphere of existence, the splendor of marvelous places will rescue all elements of life into the glorious oceans of an infinite soul.
For sure, Sirens is a reflexive, serene, expansive and poetic work. Exploring with passion, dedication and eagerness the possibilities of its magnificent, hyperbolic and unrestrained creativity, in longer songs that evokes the patience of an indefinite conscience full of courageous and dignifying splendor, Morke, through the conspicuous path of his sonorous sensibility, leads the listener to the everlasting tower of a universe designed by the delicate adulation of salutary considerations never seen before in the history of peripheral universes.
Intertwining moments of reflexive serenity with more aggressive and caustic melodies, Sirens is almost a truly philosophic work, that tries to elaborate at the crucial omniscience of its painful despair the convergence between the perfection of sincere harmonies and the monumental horizon of the delightful wars of the human heart.
A work that really deserves to capture the attention of every enthusiast of the genre in the underground scene, Sirens, by Morke, rejuvenates the formula, recreates the essence and reunites the best qualities of atmospheric black metal. Here, there is everything you need to understand perfectly what this genre is all about!
