Colombia - HWS09CD
Dark Gothic Metal with tempo variations that go from aggressive head-banging riffs to depressive moods, this is not the typical gothic act, it's powerful, complex and with a total metal approach. The clever keyboard inclusion does not just stay flat in the background but emerges to add refined environments to the music that serves as basis to a multi-textural voice driven through extremely dark tones to romantic passages.
METAL CURSE - USA (8/10)
"Gothic-tinged Death/Doom with a Greek feel... reminds old SEPTIC FLESH and even ROTTING CHRIST..."
MAELSTROM - Israel
"There's enough in the band's songwriting to warrant a listen... he hints of greatness are there, waiting to be cultivated."
THE GAUNTLET - USA
"...a combination of forcefulness and melody, with widely varying dynamics and intricately woven sonic layerings..."
SKRATCH - USA
"Gaias Pendulum's progressive metal leanings coupled with their slight gothic undertones make VITE an album that fans of Paradise Lost, Moonspell, and Lacuna Coil should be able to latch on to. This 12-track, 70+-minute offering contains all of the atmospheric twists and turns that those on the upper echelon of this particular style employ, but the stellar guitar work heard on tracks like the dynamic "Vlad Tepes" helps this disc stand out. As they're no strangers to creating lush musical landscapes, allow the solid work done by Gaias Pendulum to whisk you away."
