With well-designed and intricate guitar lines, that subtly evokes the somber intensity of a frivolous and conspicuous universe, the atmosphere created at the apex of a sinuous and profoundly anxious sonorous ambition is highly spectacular, and is correctly inserted at the nucleus of all possible sceneries of human afflictions. There is a Goddess in the forest is purely guitar based atmospheric black metal, with the delight of dreadful melodies, peculiarly created to define the dark skies of defying harmonies, that amazingly divide all the hemispheres of the soul into an everlasting dissipation of sand and dust.
Sometimes reminiscent of dark ambient, the album is an eccentric experiment, engraved over massive doses of continual sonorous intermissions. Despite the fact that the album is exceedingly extensive, and there are not too much melodic variations all the way through, some sense of monotony is inevitable to the listener. Nevertheless, there is a fascinating degree of originality in this work, that sometimes gets explicitly rock’n’roll based, and presents a formidable level of elegant versatility at the crest of its more audacious intonations, although this strong positive point could have been more well explored. Unfortunately, the album does resent itself a little in the sonorous uniformity upon which the style of the music invariably relies on. After some time, everything seems to sound the same.
While There is a Goddess in the forest is not a magnificent album, the work aspire to something greater. There is enough audacity and originality here to classify this record as a fascinating work, and the whimsical guitar lines upon which the melodies were created are certainly a majestic evidence of extraordinary creativity. I have no doubt that among atmospheric BM enthusiasts, this album will certainly find a loyal audience.
