Thee Orakle – Metaphortime


Thee Orakle hail from the country that also brought us Moonspell. Although the current style played by both bands can be regarded as dark ‘gothic’ metal, their music is quite distinct. Thee Orakle’s musicians are all really talented and the songwriting is quite good. Nothing is really outstanding in originality, but let’s forgive them this since Metaphortime is their debut. The album contains enough diversity, both between and within the different songs themselves, to draw your attention and keep your ears glued to the stereo throughout the entire CD. It looks like the band took their time to come up with their first full length album, but this can only be admired as their patience results in very high quality.
