Avatarium – The Girl With The Raven Mask


Avatarium may be masterminded by Candlemass bassist Leif Edling but their second full-length album continues to prove their worth as more than a mere offshoot. While the opening title track has a chug reminiscent of “Black Dwarf” and songs like “January Sea” and “Ghostlight” have their share of massive riffs, they generally avoid traditional doom structures. The songs’ quieter segments tend to feature sparser percussion, the vocal lines feature quirkier phrasing, and the mood is based on disorientation rather than melancholy.
