Metat[r]on is the title of the latest Darkwell album. Although this is their 3rd recording (2nd full length album), I haven't listened to Darkwell before... Metat[r]on features a new vocalist Stephanie Luzie, who replaced Darkwell's previous singer Alexandra P. After listening to this album for a few times, it became apparent that its material isn't of the highest quality.

The music on Metatron is quite basic gothic metal... The songs aren't too original, and quite many of them sound monotonous. However, there are some exceptions (not all of the songs are bad). For example, Metatron and the Machine are quite good songs.

Production-wise Metatron is quite good... The recordings are clean without getting distorted/clipped. As always, Alexander Krull has done a good job on this album. However, mixing could have been done better in someways (the dynamics aren't as good as I'd wish them to be). Nevertheless, there isn't anything terribly wrong with the mix (I just would have preferred more atmospheric overall sound).

Although some fans of gothic metal might like this release, I don't find it interesting enough to stand out from the plethora of releases in this field of music.

Release date: 29.11.2004
