Godgory's Way Beyond Revisited
Released on October 2nd, 2001, the album contained eight tracks, two of which were new versions of old material (the title track from "Sea of Dreams" and "Tear It Down" from "Shadow's Dance"). The remaining compositions brought a powerful dose of epic, monumental music, by some reviewers described as a combination of In Flames, Tiamat and… Pink Floyd! The song structures went much further than typical death metal standards allow, introducing such surprising elements as the use of heart rate and breathing machines as instruments in "Final Journey". The band also focused more on keyboard arrangements – the intro for "Another Day" is a great example of building up an intriguing atmosphere by adding keys into the composition. The heavier part of the album was represented by two fast-paced, guitar-driven tracks – "Farewell" and "Holy War". The album is considered, next to "Resurrection", as Godgory's most successful release. It's a must-have for anyone who appreciates ambitious mixtures of death and black metal, delivered in a truly original fashion.
Metal Mind Productions will re-release "Way Beyond" on 5th October in Europe and 1st December in USA (via MVD). New digipak edition is limited to 2000 copies. Digitally remastered using 24-Bit process on a golden disc.
