Noekk - The Grimalkin 2006
9.9
Prog Post Metal
This is a quite original album... the structure, art cover, length of songs (10-20 minutes) and sometimes even the music remind me a lot of Opeth's Morningrise, but without growls (none here, the vocals are all operatic). But overall this sounds more like avant-garde rock/metal, in the vein of Arcturus' La Masquerade Infernale.

I just regret there aren't more songs... I would have enjoyed more than only three.

Noekk - The Grimalkin 2006
8.0
Symphonic Prog Post Metal
I am not yet sure what to make of this. Noekk is a band which consists of Black/Avant-Metal musicians, and the album sounds like a darker version of Empyrium, with a more progressive edge and quite heavy riffs - not metal though, and no growling. Instead we get opera-like vocals and a very retro sound - in fact I don't recall them using any modern instruments.

The problem is the substance. I really enjoyed listening to this album, but I also read a negative review about the album which essentially questioned the motivation of the artists. Maybe the reviewer was biased against the vocals - they're an acquired taste.
