Classic revisited





Skepticism : Lead and Aether



This is the second full length album of Skepticism. Since their debut album 'Stormcrowfleet', the band has matured a lot. The sound on this album may be a little less dark than on their debut, but the songs are better written and the atmosphere as a whole is much more comprising. The album contains very slow music, a very deep almost whispering growl and poundering drums. The album also features an organ as one of the main instruments in every song.

As soon as the album starts off with the song 'THE ORGANIUM', the listener is engulfed by a majestic, though very doomy atmosphere. The organ used on 'Lead & Aether' adds a lot to the overall feel of the album. It's hard to imagine how "heavy" an organ can be used as an instrument when you have not heard this album. The second song is the classic 'The March and the Stream', for many people the best song Skepticism has ever written. Every single following song on the album creates the same, heavy doomy funeral feeling in a way that can be said that the album as whole is one undividable entity.

Only after the last song, 'Aether', stops and silence fills the room, the listener's emotions are released. An empty feeling follows...
