noirish symph-rock.

_Symphonic Holocaust_ is a sombre instrumental masterwork, evoking Genesis and symph-ish King Crimson. Morte Macabre's compositional grace is a thing of wonder, wielding luscious mellotrons and delicate guitar lines with sparse percussion at the zenith of subtle craftsmanship. The band's splendid arrangements are complemented by perfectly tasteful sound production, minimalist yet rich. There is no proggy heavy-handedness here! The music tends to be dark and a little discomforting (especially if listened to in the solitude of the morning's wee hours), capable of bestowing weighty sadness. Even the major key "Opening Theme", triumphant and elated though it sounds, set against its lugubrious backdrop, it becomes rendered with wrenching bittersweetness. Slow and evocative, this is a remarkable, unheralded symph-prog gem. Not like what is common to the genre, _Symphonic Holocaust_ is an affecting paradigm shift of mood with an otherwise familiar instrumental recipe. Check it out!
