Format: Audio CD
About the Band:
Qntal is an extremely popular German mittelalter (middle ages) rock / darkwave band that represents a unique blend of multiple music genres including more traditional medieval music (coming from bands like Irfan and Faun) and modern heavenly voices music (from bands like Helium Vola and Sophya). The music and lyrics are a well balanced blend of female fronted vocals, a large array of traditional (read ancient) instruments, and modern guitars and keyboards. The source material comes from 12th through 17th century songs and poems.

About the Album:
There are two basic versions of this album available: a regular edition (which this is the focus of this review) and a limited edition Qntal VI: Translucida which includes an extra four tracks.

Beware! There are domestic and European versions of this album floating around. The music is the same, so save your money and buy the domestic album.

In addition to the actual lyrics for the songs (which are sung in French, English, German, and Latin), partial English and German translations are provided for each song. For the most part, the poems on which the lyrics are based come from long forgotten sources.

The first track "Sleeping" is very soft and similar to fan favorites such as Qntal III: Tristan Und Isolde's "Name der Rose". "Departir" my favorite track has a driving beat that reminds me slightly of Depeche Mode's "Enjoy the Silence". In other words, both songs feel as though somebody is taking a final walk -- fitting given the story behind the song.

The source material comes from 12th through 17th century songs and poems.

About the Album:
The limited edition of Qntal VI: Translucida includes an extra four track bonus disk that is not included with the regular Qntal VI: Translucida. Two of the tracks on the bonus CD are remixes from the regular album. The other two tracks are exclusive to this bonus disk, and well worth it! All four bonus tracks have a more assertive and darker quality.

Beware! There are two editions of the limited edition available on Amazon. The first (older) version is the European import. The second is the cheaper North American release. With the exception of the actual location of manufacture and liner note label information they are the same product. Buy the cheaper disk.

The total run time of the bonus disk is a bit over 20 minutes. As with previous Qntal singles and bonus material, the remixed material is more electronic (in other words Fil was given free reign to make something more club friendly - and again succeeded). Of the four tracks, it is hard for me to decide if Lundus or La Froidor is my favorite.

If you're a fan of Qntal, you'll like this. It's a little more mellow than most of their other CDs.

I absolutely love the music this group produces. It is great for meditation, relaxing to after a long day, falling asleep to. I burned it to an mpg cd along with some of their other works. Its nice to drive to. If you like this band, also check out Faun.
