CALADMOR hails from Switzerland and have released a few demos under the name PALE
but have now launched their first full-length album called ĎMidwinterí.
We get 11 tracks of promising gothic/folk metal that Iím sure will turn a few heads. The first real
track ďAll That RemainsĒ canít convince me and I feared the worst the very first time I was giving
ĎMidwinterí a listen. But something happened when track 3 ď1405 A.DĒ. was thundering out of my
hard-tried speakers; Singer Barbara was suddenly very convincing and all over this track and
peppered with harsh male vocals and catchy guitar runs this track changed everything for me.
Itís not like itís the very best album I have ever heard but it is way above average in my opinion.
However it will take a few spins for a few of the songs to open up to you... but just give the songs
the change to blossom and Iím sure you will find this album quite entertaining.
Iím quite curious to hear what they can come up with on their next release and Iím sure that they
can top this album. They certainly have the potential.
Fans of gothic folk metal should at least check this album and band out.
