5.0 out of 5 stars The best overlooked band in the US. August 4, 2002
By Steve
Format:Audio CD
I bought thsi CD because Im in love with bands on The End Records like Arcturus and Winds. So I thought I'd give it a chance...and it blew my head clean off my shoulders. This CD is PACKED with technicality and musicianship. I can't point out one flaw in the band except maybe the lack of use of real drums..but I got over it quick. The guitars, pianos/synths, and bass work more than make up for it. The band sounds like a mix of Arcturus, Dream Theater, and Peccatum (Ishahn of Emperor's side project). Also, they include a second CD of purely instrumental tracks with improvised piano on top of the regular recordings. The CD is definatly one of the best purchases I've made in months.

5.0 out of 5 stars simply amazing... August 4, 2002
By Jason
Format:Audio CD
I originally bought this cd because of the record label it was on, (the same as Arcturus and Diabolical Masquerade) and when i finally listened to it for the first time it blew me away with its technical melodies and incredible piano parts. This band is so atmospherical, and as an added bonus for progressive fans, there is a second cd without the vocals and different arrangements of the music with improv piano. buy this cd

4.0 out of 5 stars An inspiring rarity in metal. May 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
[from liner notes] "Note about the bonus instrumental CD: We did the instrumental cd for our fans who aren't into the more vicious vocal material. We know that many of you prog & instrumental fans out there dig the music by itself, so this disc is for you. The piano tracks are completely improvised, ... totally unplanned, unrehearsed, ... in full detail, unedited."

Yeeeehaw! Finally a concession to the minority of fans I belong to (those folks who love bludgeoning heavy metal, but hate the sound of a vocalist trying to imitate a wasps' nest being attacked with a chainsaw). I'm sure the original version of The Immortality Murder will be a treat for people who like that kind of thing, but disc 2 is the true marvel for me. These tracks have had all the wretched cookie-monster stuff removed and as a bonus they're interspersed with some crazy-spooky piano work. Program just those songs and you've got a nice helping of beautiful dark interludes, like something out of a truly scary Gothic horror film (without the cheese).

The rest of the material is an exhilarating kind of metal that's equal parts gorgeous melodicism, outrageous virtuosity and awe-inspiring technicality. Nothing new there, but Scholomance also has an impressive skill at balancing heavy/soft dynamics the way e.g. Opeth and King Crimson do. Crunching guitars give way to quiet smooth-flowing harpsichords, eerie synths float above like ghosts spiraling through the rafters, the changing drums provide a soft coasting groove one minute and abruptly make your brain start rattling in your skull the next. I'd also be remiss if I didn't mention the super-tasty fretless bass work, which is the perfect anchor. It's an album of one mood, but it does what it does spectacularly.
