Some albums have a harder time than others. There are always new obstacles springing up out of nowhere and one worse than the other, just when everything seems ready. ORDER OF ISAZ know this tale all too well and state that their new album was “recorded over 7 Years of Famine at House of Voodoo Studio” by drummer Anders Bentell, which partly explains the title.
Order Of Isaz was founded in Stockholm 2009 and immediately released a self-titled EP to major critical acclaim, which was followed by a long period of silence. Former Tiamat bassist Johnny Hagel has left a deep mark on the sound of his brainchild. Listening to Order Of Isaz evokes memories of gothic metal masterpieces such as 1994’s Wildhoney and the following year’s Gaia EP (1995). Similarly, there is also a strong undercurrent of gothic rock waiting to be unveiled in Seven Years Of Famine, as well as obvious classic influences from the likes of The Sisters Of Mercy and Fields Of The Nephilim.
Order Of Isaz melt all this dark musical gold down in the crucible of Swedish melodic mastership and cast it into new shapes with the aid of buzzing guitars and the wide vocal range of former Necrophobic frontman Tobias Sidegård. For all those that long for the beautifully sinister days of gothic metal, Seven Years Of Famine might just be the record that brings them back.
