Le Testament De La Lumiere/Echoes Out Of Time/Steinklang/2010 CD Review

Le Testament De La Lumiere are a band that mixes dark ambient with neo-classical and martial-industrial and this is a review of their 2010 album "Echoes Out Of Time" which was released by Steinklang.

Synths sound very dark in an ambient way, while the noise effects range from soft to harsh, as for the vocals they are mostly spoken word passages with some clean singing and slow shamanistic drum beats being used at times that are also very militaristic when the song calls for it.

Lyrics are written in a mixture of English and German and are very ritualistic with tales from the forgotten times and many references to Greek gods, while the production has a very dark and raw feel to it, as for the samples they are taken out of classic films.

In my opinion Le Testament De La Lumiere are a very food dark ambient/noise band that should appeal to all fans of this genre. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Retaliation...And The Gods Have Smiled" "Standing Stones" "The Wind Tells From Forgotten Times" and "Erebus". RECEMMONDED BUY.
