Many would argue that this band’s style is annoying consistent throughout the years and it’s already their 11th (!) studio album. Yet this music is still as powerful and as spiritual, as well as it is very inspiring and calming, as ever. And given that it is so today, when bands with such long history give in to trends, and start experimenting with their style. As Inkubus Sukkubus remains so faithful to its nature, its pagan lifestyle, it revives the 1500s, when the mankind was burning anyone at least a little bit different or more spiritual than the society accepted. And in this is the charm and the power of this band.
This particular record is a celebration of The Day of the Dead, usually celebrated on 1st or 2nd of November, especially in Latin American culture. So alongside some Spanish lyrics, we can also hear some hand drums, ritual melodies and maracas in the background. Listening to this music, interweaved with Candia’s empowering vocals, it is very calming and relaxing, when only some live fire is missing set in a warm Summer’s night. This record is another way to reinforce the band’s affirmation, “be wild, be free!” and stay away from judgments and prejudices.
