This is a review of another recording from Sweden's Arcana which shows the music going into a mixture of dark ambient and darkwave and the album was originally released in 2004 and called "The New Light" with the re-issue version coming out in November of 2017 by Cyclic Law.
Atmospheric sounding drones start off the album along with some dark ambient style synths which also use a variety of many different sounding keys while folk instruments are also used at times and when spoken word parts are utilized they give the songs more of a ritualistic feeling and some of the tracks are instrumentals.
Melodic vocals can also be heard in certain sections of the recording while elements of darkwave can also be heard at times and when whispers are utilized they give the music almost a black metal feeling and when drum beats are finally utilized they add in more of a tribal and ritualistic feeling as well as the music also incorporating elements of neo folk and female vocals are added onto the closing track.
On this recording Arcana goes for more of an atmospheric mixture of dark ambient and darkwave, the production sounds very dark while the lyrics cover darkness, nature and poetic themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Arcane and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Reminiscence" "Wound" "Through The Glass Horizon" and "Roots". 8 out of 10.
