Subject: 3: Aara - Triade I: Eos From: .jh Date: 2021-12-25T15:13:00Z Tags: music blog best\ of best\ of\ 2021 Aara Triade\ I:\ Eos 2021 ![Triade I: Eos](/gfx/915727.jpg) Since this came out in March I've listened incessantly to it, it wouldn't surprise me if this is my most listened to album of 2021. After last year's _En ErgĂ´ Einai_ I knew to keep an eye out for them and the first part of their trilogy based on Charles Maturin's book _Melmoth the Wanderer_, _Triade I: Eos_ is a stunning album start to finish. Aara are classified as atmospheric blackmetal but I'm not sure that description really does them justice. While there are parts which could be described as atmospheric or even symphonic most of this album is played at an absolutely blistering speed with high pitched shrieked vocals, which by the way are all things I like, but it's not necessarily what I imagine when I see something described as atmospheric blackmetal, but I digress. As noted things here mostly proceed at breakneck speed with a few interludes to let you catch your breath (guess this is the atmosphere). I am very fond of the vocals, absolutely searing and caustic this is just how I like my blackmetal singers. Aara have constructed a monster of an album here and I just hope the wait for parts two and three aren't too long. [Aara]( ---
