Ancient Wisdom - ...and the Physical Shape of Light Bled

Posted on Tuesday, August 31, 2010

For those of you not familiar with this one-man project, this Vargher of Bewitched fame trying his hand at a little Blackened Doom. His past works have been outstanding with The Calling and For Snow Covered the Northland, but this album unfortunately is a step down. The synths this time around are downright irritating. I can’t explain it, but they simply overpower the other aspects of the music. The campy sounding keys stick out like a sore thumb robbing the dark music of its grim. Keyboards have always been a part of Vargher’s arsenal, but more suavely subdued in the past, only highlighting, not spotlighting. Don’t dismiss Ancient Wisdom as a failure, just avoid this one release. The aforementioned records are gems.
