Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Midnattsol captures the imagination of their fans for the third time by whisking them away to the magical world of Nordic legends and sagas. The band, spearheaded by vocalist Carmen Elise Espenaes, continues to refine their characteristic sound and delivers a new jewel to the Gothic Metal scene. Midnattsol has created an impressive and very charming album, which shines as brightly and mysteriously as the aurora borealis. For fans of Leaves' Eyes & Epica.

Review

"Soothing, graceful Nordicism, conjuring up images of nocturnal forest groves and the fey spirits that dwell there." --Decibel

If you buy this, go for the Limited Edition. Though Amazon don't seem to mention it, it also includes a live concert DVD.

Here goes:

CD- Recaptures much of the magic of "Where Twilight Dwells". Definitely a stronger album than the follow up "Nordlys". Maybe more metal and less folk in the mix than "Twilight", but the metal is more "molten" than Nordlys - some great flowing guitar riffage here, somehow in short supply in that last album. There are also more "symphonic" elements than in the mix than before .
Carmen Elise' vocals are as strong and entrancing as ever. Just here and there though she seems to be straining to make herself heard over the top of the rest of the band all going full blast, you wish they would give her a little more space.

Just one more thing-the last minute or so of "The Tide" did to my ears bear more than a passing resemblance to Delain's wondrous "Sleepwalkers Dream" Bit naughty that - best try to think of it as a "tribute"! But don't just take my word for it, buy "Lucidity "as well, and decide for yourself....

This CD is again Grunt-free, bar the final (bonus)track!Overall, a clear "Four stars" just for the CD-and it might well be enough of a "grower" to grow a Fifth with a few more plays.

The Limited Edition earns a Fifth now anyway from the second disc:

DVD
A full 50 minute and more live set ,performed at MFVF 2009. They play 8 numbers from the first 2 albums(En Natt I Nord/Haunted/Northern Light/Konkylie/Open Your Eyes/Lament/Skogens Lengsel/Tapt Av Hapt)

The band plays a mean set and sounds every bit as strong live as they do in the studio. And its 100% Grunt-free! Unusually though, there are no "extras" at all (could have made good use of the running time left on the disc)

In the past I said this band had a lot of potential. It has reached that potential.

The songs have great melodies to them. They rock out but also mainstream sounding and radio friendly. The symphonic elements are not as good as Leaves Eyes as it appears they are still using a keyboard so that is probably the only draw back. they continue to use the signature low pitch guitars as in the past.

It still sounds a bit raw like an early or young band but in a good way. It reminds me of Leaves Eyes Lovelorn. The only draw back is there is nothing too catchy or addictive in this album. It seems like something that I would get bored with after a while.

Symphonic metal band fronted by the younger sister of Liv Kristine (Leaves' Eyes/Theatre of Tragedy). When I first listened to this band and didn't know that bit of trivia I thought they sounded like Leaves' Eyes, so if you like those bands or that style of metal in general, I highly recommend giving this band a listen.
