ISIULUSIONS – I – FOLLOW THE FLOW– I – FOLLOW THE FLOW ( Review by Varg The Mighty )

Today’s review is of Austrian Gothic Black Metal band Isiulusions’ debut album, a curious and definitely original mix of two genres.
This band gets the speed and characteristics of Black Metal and then suddenly at half song they completely change it for soft, mostly acoustic Gothic Metal, which in this case reminds of Lake Of Tears and similar bands. This blend reminds us of other kind of soft Black Metal bands like Fluisteraars, but the particular ideas of this band are definitely unique.
On some songs like “Fire Is No Harm” and “Sentenced To Misery” this blend is well done, but on most songs it seems unnatural and forced, a mistake that shall hopefully be corrected in future albums. While the Black Metal voice is quite good, the clear one lacks some of the deepness and power needed to sing Gothic, but this is compensated by beautiful riffs and precious acoustic interludes that help to create the intended atmosphere even if some songs break it a little.
Overall this is a decent and interesting album, but it may be a little too long with 13 tracks. I recommend this album if you like Black Metal, Atmospheric Black Metal, Gothic Metal and Folk Rock if you’re interested in odd new ideas.
