Silent Stream of Godless Elegy : Behind the Shadows



Some time ago, I bought this album on the advice of a friend during one or other show. He knew I'm a fan of doom-metal and told me that I would probably love this album. To be honest, the album didn't do a lot to me the first few times I listened to it. But it grew on me enormously.

The album contains 11 tracks plus an extra bonus song. Silent Stream of Godless Elegy, a Czech Republic based band, plays dark doomy metal, with melodic guitar riffs, acoustic guitar parts, violin, violoncello and some flute. In some songs, a female backing voice is added to the male grunts and 'clean' vocals. Tempo varies from up-tempo folk-like rhythms to slow doom-metal tempo.

The booklet features (apart from a very red coloured frontcover), black and white pages with lyrics and drawings of leaves and other nature inspired scenes. The last regular song on the album is a covertrack of Dead Can Dance's 'Cantara', a song with only acoustic instruments in addition to a female chanting voice. The bonus track 'I Come and Stand at Every Door' has only female vocals. Lyrics are in English, which results in huge accents in the singing.
