October Falls
A Collapse of Faith
Style: Black Metal
Release date: May 24th 2010

As far as black metal goes, this is the kind that explores the darkness and beauty of life in the north. October Falls from Finland strike upon something in the Nordic soul, and to someone like myself this is fascinating even if black metal is not at all my favourite pass time.

The music is for the most part grim as is the vocal expression of M. Lehto, yet there is something captivating about it, an air of the coming of winter, the dim thought of wolves in the night and a moon that throws a silver light over the woods.

The music as such...well, it's quite decently performed and it does surprise with an unexpected harmony here and there as well as an acoustic guitar - it's alright. The atmosphere created, though, that is where this one hits right home and makes a difference!
