ARTHUROS "Ithildin" CD
Tour de Garde, Out of Season
Although heavily inspired by early artists like Depressive Silence, it would be churlish to characterise Arthuros as a mere clone. "Ithildin" is one of the best genre debuts I've heard in years, weaving an enchanting, dreamy atmosphere that all tower-dwelling wizards should lend an ear to. A work of wonder and an artist to follow. Simple, pure and repetitive - this album pursues one vision of dungeon synth to the point of absolute perfection. CD edition, limited to 300 copies. Split release with Out of Season.
