Golden Ashes - "In The Lugubrious Silence Of Eternal Night" (CD)
GOLDEN ASHES was another creative face of the incredibly prolific Maurice de Jong, largely known for Gnaw Their Tongues, but operating under a vast number of guises.
Mories’ foremost weapon here as GOLDEN ASHES is his arsenal of synths, layering them in a most labyrinthine manner but most importantly with an ear for medieval melody, of somber splendor writ large and even lysergic.
The title itself suggested a unique take on familiar black metal themes, and the music duly followed suit: recognizably atmospheric/synth-inclined black metal, but with a blitzed sensibility that was unmistakably the work of Mories.
