Reseña de álbum

Amazing as it may seem, the music presented by Dark Suns' debut album, 2002's Swanlike, didn't just measure up to its flamboyant title, it helped put Germany on the death/doom map along with this upstart group from Leipzig. Sure, with its multiple moods and hard/soft passages, guttural death growls, and mild-mannered clean vocals, tittering double bass patterns and densely harmonic, mega-riff coda strung out over an 11-minute bulk, the opening title track actually recalls progressive death metal giants Opeth. But even more than the hallowed Swedish quartet, subsequent offerings quickly confirm Dark Suns' closest sonic parallel to be Chicago horror-doom depressives November's Doom — emphasis on doom. Hear the stunning, wraith-like piano initiating the at times still uptempo and almost singalong "Infiltration," then swoon underneath the sorrowful strings and heartbreaking dual guitar harmonies of "The Sun Beyond Your Eden" — a combination that anticipates the rise of Finland's brilliant Swallow the Sun a few years later. The less distinctive "Virtuous Dilemma" gets decidedly lost amid its superior surroundings, which continue through album's end thanks to the alternating death metal fury and graceful acoustic strumming of "The Neverending," an "instrumental conversion" of ancient demo cut "In Silent Harmony II" that's all mellow synths and bongos, and the almost hopeful melodies of "Inside Final Dreams," where vocalist/drummer Niko Knappe's dramatically dead pan recitation proffers another link to November's Doom, even while whale and bird cries twist and mingle in the wind. A 14-minute bonus cut called (aptly enough) "Suffering," and originating in the band's 1998 EP, is tacked on for good measure, and despite more than its share of moments, reveals just how farDark Suns had come since its inception to deliver in Swanlike one of the standout death metal/doom metal albums of 2002.

With a sound inspired in equal parts by the progressive death metal of Sweden's Opeth, and the orchestrated gothic death/doom of November's Doom and early Paradise Lost, Dark Suns emerged from the city of Leipzig, Germany, in 1997. A first demo, Below Dark Illusion, appeared the following year, and an EP entitled Suffering the Psychopathic Results of Daily Blasphemy (and containing but one, 14-minute song) followed in 1999. By 2002, the band had come to feature vocalist/drummer Niko Knappe, guitarists...
