WELTENBRAND - The End Of The Wizard

This band comes from Liechtenstein and this is their fifth album so far, and their first in Napalm Records. The first thing that the listener will notice here, is the magnificent way the romantic female and the Gothic male vocals blend, completing each other and creating a very powerful duo. The band is playing a kind of Gothic music, with tons of melodies, and the use of violins and keyboards manage to create a dark and unique atmosphere. The majority of the songs are good, with enough nice ideas, all explored to the fullest, and there are enough things to discover to this album, things often not available with the first listen. Not a typical Metal album for sure, and not the typical Goth album as well, but there's plenty to like in this album and make it a fun to listen to.
