I love the name Angellore as it sounds so mystical and atmospheric, which they truly are. Angellore borrow plenty of influences from Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride, early Anathema and even goth rockers The Sisters of Mercy.
“Errances” is half doom metal and half goth rock driven, but 100% melancholic in feel. Angellore show life of from many unique perspectives be it dark, tragic or even sad in nature. I am not saying that what this band has written suicidal in shape or form, but it invokes a sense of tragedy within your heart, making you wonder as to why you’re still alive and why some peoples’ lives cut so short.
Without getting too damn philosophical, Angellore tread the depressive seas of emotional suffering and torture. I am quite sure you can relate to this as it is something we’ve all been through in our lives at one time or another. However, Angellore’s debut CD, “Errances” is kind of therapeutic yet something that just makes you want to look deep within your dreaded past. With songs like: “Tears Of Sorrow”, “I am The Agony” and “…Where Roses Never Die…”, you will easily get sucked into their realm of total gloom and doom with gothic rock thrown in for good measure. It is not something I will listen to again as I prefer the acts mentioned above as they were the true originators of doom and gloom with an eclectic style and sound all their own. Oh ya, there is also a mixture of growl and clean vocals to give your ears a musical hypnosis that they’ll never forget, and therefore make you go into a trance-like state. This one should be listened with a solid pair of headphones for maximum aural agony. [Dream Cell 11] Sarjoo Devani
