Anyhow, Frozen Embers has me positively salivating at the thought of their upcoming album, especially since I had a chance to listen to some of the tracks that will be on it already. And while one might argue about the need for five different versions of Coming Home on one CD, each remix is different in its way, and it is hard to pick a favourite. Same with the three different versions of Winterborn, which is among my top ten Cruxshadows songs ever (Among the others are Deception, Cruelty, Marilyn, Eurydice, Bloodline, Ballrooms on Mars and several new songs I heard at their shows)
Winterborn, as I alluded to, is simply amazing, a beautiful and inspiring piece, that blends in wonderfully with the general theme of their current concerts, involving the fall of Troy. If the rest of the new album is as great, we have a lot to look forward to.
The other songs are great as well, and finally we have a CD with Deception on it, a song that was only to be found on the Succubus Club sampler. Dancefloor Tragedy is another great song, though not as brilliant as some of their other work.
Frozen Embers is not for everybody. If you desperately want new Cruxshadows songs, wait for the next album. If you are new to the band, get Wishfire or Mystery of the Whisper first. If, however, you are somebody like me, who needs every album by his favourite band, and every remix of every track, then get this EP. It is on constant rotation in my player (along with the Echoes and Artifacts EP) and I see no reason to take it out yet...
Here is a song by song review of Frozen Embers.
1.Winter Born - A new track that kind of shows resemblance of Wishfire on many levels. At times I feel im listening to The Seraphs then other times Binary with a mix of Spiral... Its an odd song but its not bad,just a bit differant.
2.Dance Floor Metaphore - Oh yeah! This song completly grabed me! It starts off with an electro beat similar to Binary from Wishfire but when it kicks in,it stops resembling Binary and takes shape all on its own. With the intense chorus of Take back the dancefloor,this track makes the disc worth owning. Plus it will be a great song for electro-goth dj's
3.Return (Coming home) *The Dreamside remix part 1*- Kind of a down tempo remix , almost dreamy with slower beats. Interesting take on the song.
4.Return (Coming home) *The Dreamside remix pt 2* Semi electro-clash hybrid trance remix.Read more ›
