Finnish side project aim to set your imagination free
Billed as beautiful black metal. Atrum Tempestas say their evocative of the finer moments of your life and as it is with any form of reminiscing, it’s partially wistful as well. Perttunen (vocals, instruments) is also the lead singer of Finnish Melodic Death / Gothic metallers CATAMENIA;
We say musically, it’s comparable to Woods of Desolation, Austere, even Alcest but the music is more elegant than overly emotional. Atrum Tempestas maintain a crisp balance in the sound, taking the best of both realms so to speak.
It’s atmospheric and relies on your imagination to an extent while guiding you through a bleak palette of the colours of life. Three songs are consistent and yet different, portraying something tangible to the heart, something that doesn’t wear off soon.
This is a sublime debut full length album from members of the veteran band Catamenia and Ars Preasagus.
