Fully poetic, intuitive and profoundly melodic, Perseiderna probably will be the most wonderfully Progressive Atmospheric Black Metal album that you will ever hear in your life. Combining a great range of archaic melodies with emotionally transcendental harmonies, this album really evaluates all lines of work that makes the genre to be as strong as it is. Although really rapid rhythms are present throughout the whole album, the ascendant overtones in all songs are never ignored, nor obliterated by obtuse commonplaces, but beauty and fastness are masterly arranged to fully work together, and transport you to a distant and superior galaxy of splendid sounds and serene dreamscapes, that is elevated beyond all cosmogonies, developing a sincere and unusual style that creates crystal realms of pacified essence, beyond all reflections, sensations and perceptions, alien to the mostly incarcerated notions of the human horizon.
This album is undoubtedly the greatest and brightest musical achievement for Progressive Atmospheric Black Metal so far, but this work achieves a vast glorious artistry, that not only surpasses the boundaries of a continental philosophy of poetic enlightenment, but remains significant for the underground scene as a whole. Combining the superior beauty of transcendental harmonies with the sensibility of a glamorous sonorous vitality, the bright artistic tempestuous conflagration that breaths through this ulterior creative work of monumental musical expression regenerates a universe of lucid and imperial integrity, that never had taken a musical shape before.
Perseiderna definitely takes the genre of Progressive Atmospheric Black Metal to another level. With a definitive melodic approach that promotes sensibility as a major musical aspect, without renouncing to fast rhythms or unequivocal restless harmonies, impressing a subjective, but very underlying beauty to its musical passages as well, this album has everything to improve the perceptions of the genre as a lucid and infinite form of higher art. Breaking limits and defining boundaries in a very outstanding categorical precision, Æðra consolidates the future of melodic, reflexive and atmospheric black metal as a superior place of undeniable musical values and loquacious artistic goals, never to be the same again.
