URIZEN SOCIETY (CN) - Solium Ardens: The Ring of Coagula
PEST-344/345 | Full-length | Hardcover Book CD
Limited 2CD edition：
CD1: SOLIUM ARDENS: The Ring of Coagula
CD2: SOLIUM ARDENS: The Ring of Coagula ΣΥΜ (Re-adapted orchestral version of The Ring of Coagula)
This second full-length album comprises eight tracks of an enigmatic dark symphony, is Urizen Society's culmination through seven long years of crafting. This ambitious and undoubtedly unique project has to a large extent, redefined the underground scene of Shanghai --- their music brings to the forefront the narrative coherence and theatrical expression (visual and sonic), in line with their approach to songwriting that draws heavily on classical symphony composition (for instance, they also pay homage to Philip Grass and Gyorgy Ligeti). Solium Ardens is thus a conceptual album with a storyline that winds through epic about war and death, about the divine wrath, about myths, love, destiny, and the cycle of civilization --- combining fierce Black Metal riffs with coiling symphonic sections, this album serves as a grandiose soundtrack for a tragedy of Armageddon.
