Tyranny - Tides Of Awakening
The eagerly awaited second wave is poised to be unleashed upon the unsuspecting masses, spawned of deep subterranean resonations of the prehuman era. This echoes with the errie antediluvian keening of inhuman astral beings, a promise of return from the unguessed abysmal gulfs beyond time. The chaos of the soundscapes now howls with the subatonal roaring of cyclopean proportions, even the primal clarion of the unutterable nuclear entity that blasphemes and bubbles at the center of all infinity.
 
So, that means a lot doesn’t it? Well, to me it doesn’t! I don’t get shit of what the band is telling me with this part but I’m sure it’s positive. The music is described as Funeral Doom, which isn’t my thing at all. And to make it even better…I haven’t heard Funeral Doom music before at all! I haven’t got any clue of what I’m about to hear when I put this disc in my player but what the hell…I’ll give it a try!
 
And now I do know exactly why I waited so long to give this disc a try. Because it sucks! Man! I’m sorry guys, but this just isn’t my thing. The only thing that Funeral Doom music seems to be made for is to depress people. Ok I know, the name Funeral Doom says enough but still…why would someone make this ‘music’? If ‘music’ is the right description for this anyway.
 
I hear some keyboards/synths or whatever it is and some deep gargling in a mic. That’s it! I’ll be honest with you: that’s just it! Imagine yourself in a dark deep cave, and suddenly you walk into a room with one single candle at the wall. Somewhere in front of you stands a troll and he’s talking to you. The thing is, he’s not using words, he’s just making noises and you don’t get shit of what he’s trying to tell you.
 
In the meantime, you hear keyboards/synths at the background, and you feel like the whole cave is about to explode within a few seconds. Now, that would be cool! At least it would be a bit refreshing to me. But again, no action! The explosion stays out. This music creates an extremely dark atmosphere but that’s it. There’s nothing to it. Nothing! I really can’t believe that people like this stuff…can someone explain the meaning of 66 minutes of a troll in a cave making noises to me? If so, please feel free to do so because I just don’t get this…I’m sorry guys, I tried!
 
Oh and ehm…the score: that’s just a wild guess! Nicely in the middle I’d say.
