Genre/Influences: Gothic, Cinematic, Neo-Classic.

Format: Digital, CD, Vinyl, Cassette.

Background/Info: Anna-Varney Cantodea and the lovely Ensemble Of Shadows strike back with four new songs which each cover a colour.

Content: This work sounds very Cinematic-like and there’s only one single cut featuring vocals. The listener embarks on a dark and melancholic voyage created by an artistic ensemble playing acoustic instruments like violin, cello, trombone, trumpet, bass guitar and drums. The work is moving from dark, dreamy, passages into pure sadness. 

+ + + : No doubt about it Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble Of Shadows would be the perfect project to compose a great Soundtrack. This work sounds a tiny atypical although revealing the familiar sound and influences of the project. “Orange” is a more ‘classical’ cut featuring Anna-Varney Cantodea’s bewitching timbre of voice. Speaking for myself I especially like the violin play at this work which empowers the melancholic sensation.

– – – : Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble Of Shadows with less vocals sounds different and I miss this unique sensation of Cantodea singing.

Conclusion: This work is a cool addendum to the new album “Alone At Sam’s – An Evening With​.​.​.”

Best songs: “Orange”, “White”, “Purple”.

Rate: 8.
