Illuminandi – Illumina Tenebras Meas


#71 Heaven’s Metal Fanzine (US)

Symphonic gothic death metal? Hailing from Poland, they are a mix of dark, heavy music, over-laid with violin and cello, mixed with both death metal growls and melodic male and female vocals. Interestingly enough, it works! Elements of this remind me of the symphonic material of Believer with a mix of Virgin Black here and there. This five song EP has nine songs total; five songs with vocals in English and four of them in Polish. [Independent]
