Eternal Deformity - Frozen Circus (CD)

Eternal Deformity
Frozen Circus
by Yiannis Dafopoulos at 04 April 2008, 1:20 PM

This release seemed interesting right from the start, since the whole concept is too Avant Garde and I was damn sure that I would have to face something strange and unique. The fact that the band has nicknames from people that work in a circus seemed pretty clever to me and the musical style was definitely not something I am able to hear every day. It's nice to make a break from all the Metalcore bullshit with a fresh and different album.

The Polish whatever Metal act was formed in 1993 and was formerly a pure Doom Metal band. They have up to now released four records (the last one The Serpent Design was released in 2002) and they are now part of the underground label Code666. Their new album is definitely something that will make the Metal scene notice them and give them the attention they deserve.

Their music cannot be put under any musical tag, so I will try to describe them in the best way possible. The fact that they have crossed the usual Metal borders is something I appreciate and admire in this band and this should be taken under consideration from everyone that has been bored of listening to common and uninspired Metal releases. So, here it goes…

The Polish metallers have managed to mix elements like Black, Doom and Progressive Metal, with some fragments from Avant Garde and Gothic music. There times that they may remind you of ARCTURUS, DRACONIAN, DARZAMAT or PRIMORDIAL, and that's what makes them special. Their ability to become a chameleon Metal act that disguises into thousands of different characters and send you into a trip of brutal, melancholic and psychedelic emotions at the same time. There is no way to escape their gloriousness…

Imagine that Frozen Circus is a canvas, with a strange, grotesque drawing that is somehow familiar to you. This album has all the nice, kind and at the same time twisted instincts you never managed to accept. From the very first time I got in touch with this album, I just couldn't stop listening to it. Every time I was able to discover brand new things that my previous listening session was hiding from me. Frozen Circus seems like it's coming out of the pages of the writings people like Edgar Allan Poe and Charles Baudelaire offered to us.

You may think that right now I am exaggerating and what I say is just a matter of pure enthusiasm. I will say just one thing. Wait 'till you listen to this album and if you are the exact same person you were before the Frozen Circus experience, then I am sorry to say it, but your emotional world is empty…
