Endura/The Dark Is Light Iron Music/1995 CD Review

Endura are a band from England that plays a style of music that I would describe as esoteric dark ambient and this i a review of their classic 1995 album "The Dark Is Light Enough".

Keyboards and synths are very dark sounding with some neoclassical influences that kind of have the feel of a Dungeons And Dragons type of video game while the drums when they are utilized have a tribal feel that is very shamanistic sounding at at times evokes an emotion that calls up the pagan gods.

Vocals are clean singing vocals that have a gothic music feel to them with some spoken word parts that calls up the Elder Ones, while the guitars when they utilizes are done on a classical guitar with alot of fingerpicking being used, while the lyrics are heavily influenced by the writings of H>P Lovecraft and Aliester Cruwley with alot of occult references, as for the production on this albumwhich was recorded during the winter of 1994 and 1995 at Enlightment House sounds very professional and you can hear all of the musical instruments.

In my opinion Endura was a great band for this style of music and if you are a fan of dark ambient or even black ambient you should add this album to your collection. STANDOUT TRACKS INCLUDE"Ubbo-Sathla" "when I Was Dead" and "The Dark Is Light Enough". RECOMMENDED BUY
