Heivoth - The Rise of Heivothia
Dark Ambient, Ambient I've never heard a band from Venezuela before (except a bizarre Black Metal project entitled "The Art of Jor"). Anyway, Heivoth offers us some disengaging and atrophied Ambient music, and this demo CD is limited to just fifty copies.

The first track on this release is entitled "The Rise of Heivothia", and it's without doubt that the artist has a lot of pride in his work. Rightly so, as this initial track serves as a very dark and emotional ambient track, and it is not dissimilar to the ambient stuff Black Metal artists make to pass the time.

With its primeval and resonating calls for power, there is definitely an empire buried under the Soil, and this track might just be enough to make it surface. Does exactly what it says it does. Impressive.

Every new ambient band must have a nod to Burzum, and a title like "Key for an Impenetrable Gate" should not leave you wondering where the inspiration comes from for too long. This is another track fuelled with majesty, and regal emissions. Once again, we have an album that can be compared to "Hlidskjalf", but in this case who cares?

It is with the third (and penultimate) track, "Majestic Way to the Glory" that Heivoth really begins to differentiate between itself and its peers. A Track that noticeably develops, to the point where you wait for the sudden explosion of musical bliss, and when it comes, it comes! It suddenly dies, and bells echo in the distance, and we hear sounds like a stone being rolled back (sound familiar?), and then suddenly, there it is!

A vintage and absolutely beautiful chorus of drumming and harmonious keyboards erupt into a ceremonial coronation of hope and splendour. All empires fall as empires must, and just nineteen minutes into its existence, Heivothia becomes a name on a scroll, and its final goodbye is told to us with a twelve minute requiem, entitled "The End of Heivothia". Wipe the tears away, as scornful, tender and emotional auras carry this release to its proud and honoured finish. I can't say with any honesty that this will change lives, but for first (demo) release, there is enough talent, awe, and mythos here to carry many a sleepless night to a new dimension.
