Creation VI/Nightspirit/Stormchild/2009 Split CD Review

This is a review of a split album between Ukraine's Creation VI, Nightspirit and Stormchild and we will start of the review with Creation VI which plays dark drone ambient.

Synths are very dark ambient experimental sounding with a good amount of drones being thrown into the music, while the noise effects bring a very dark and ritualistic sound to the music, in addition the band teams up with Nightspirit and Stormchild on a couple of songs.

Vocals and song writing are absent from their side of the split with the music being all instrumental while the song concepts seem to cover UFO themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.

In my opinion Creation VI are a very great sounding dark drone ambient band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out their music. RECOMMENDED Track "The Visitors". RECOMMENDED.

Next up is Nightspirit which plays drone ambient.

Synths are all dark ambient sounding with a very primitive sound to it while the noise effects range from dark soundscapes to heavy drone's with the songs being very long in length.

Vocals and song writing are absent from the music with the music being all instrumental drone soundscapes while the song concepts revolve around dark themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.

In my opinion Nightspirit are a very great sounding drone ambient band and if you are a fan of this style of music, you should check them out. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Cosmic Sea". RECOMMENDED .

Next up is Stormchild which plays dark ambient gothic mixed with neo-classical.

Synths are all soft relaxing with musical styles that combine dark ambient, gothic and neo classical together with a brief use of violin on the last song which brings an avant garde feeling to the music.

Rhythm guitars are all slow distorted sounding doom metal riffs with somewhat of a black metal influence to it, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding guitar solos and leads.

Vocals and song writing are absent from this recording with the music being all instrumental except for the last song where there is a brief use og high pitched screams, while the song themes cover dark topics, as for the production it has a very dark and heavy sound.

In my opinion Stormchild are a very great sounding dark ambient/gothic/neo-classical music hybrid with a metal influence and also have the best music on this split and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out their music. RECOMMENDED TRACKS "Oblivion River". RECOMMENDED.

In my opinion this is a great split and I would recommend this to all fans of dark ambient drone and gothic music. RECOMMENDED BUY.
