Here's a great compilation of dark and neoclassical music, dedicated
to the Père--Lachaise cemetery, which is one of the most romantic
and mysterious places in this holy world. It's also an unmissable reference
in gloomy and cinematic "tragical" culture. Together, Divine
Comedy Records and Steinklang are producing a tribute to this worldwide
and legendary atmospheric icon.
This musical journey is depicted by four top bands (with two tracks
each) from the new emerging dark-ambiant and neo-symphonic scene : Horologium,
Project Winter and Artefactum from Poland completed by
Foundation Hope from the Netherlands. The mood is dark, menacing
and epic at time with Horologium being the most martial act. "Paradise
One" symbolises a passage from life to death surrounded by fading
memories from different areas and destinies.
The CD is packed in a beautiful book with full pages sepia pictures
by Fabrice Billard, known for his previous pictures and illustrations
for DCR releases and bands such as Sonne Hagal. Art and history beyond
the graves. Pere-Lachaise is a feeric and beautiful place. A place you'll
need a whole existence to know "tous les coins et recoins".
