Empyrium - Into The Pantheon (BDrip) Empyrium is a German symphonic folk/doom metal and (later) neofolk/dark folk band. Founded in 1994 by Markus Stock (mostly
using the pseudonym Ulf Theodor Schwadorf) and Andreas Bach, the band
draws inspiration from nature as some of the album titles reveal.
Consequently, Empyrium are often referred to as a dark folk or
apocalyptic folk band, expressing in their music (most conspicuously in
the last two albums) sentiments akin to those expressed by some other
'legislators' of the genre, as Forseti, Orplid, and Ulver.
Their first two albums, A Wintersunset and Songs of Moors and Misty
Fields, following a demo entitled ...Der wie ein Blitz vom Himmel
fiel..., can be considered doom metal (or, as some will argue, folk
metal) with folk and symphonic influences. They combine harsh and
operatic male vocals, with deep slow guitar parts and atmospheric
sounds. The following two albums, Where at Night the Wood Grouse Plays
and Weiland are acoustic, display a constantly heavier neofolk
influence. Instead of keyboards, the band switched to acoustic
instruments such as acoustic guitars, violins, cellos and the flute.
Operatic male vocals are still used, and in Weiland the band uses choir
vocals and the piano. Though the music still remains dark and
melancholic, Empyrium's music has largely moved away from heavy metal.
Many people consider these two albums to be the apex of Empyrium's skill
and some accomplishment of the band's - or rather Schwadorf's goal.
Ulf Theodor Schwadorf (vocals, guitars, guitars (acoustic), keyboards, piano)
Thomas Helm (vocals, keyboards, piano)
The show, which lasted about 70 minutes, was captured in sound and vision to be released now as an audio-CD and BluRay/DVD.
This magical world premiere, recorded in high-resolution HD video and
stereo, respectively 5.1 surround sound, constitutes the heart of "Into
the Pantheon". In addition to the concert, a documentary of more than
100 minutes provides a detailed and exhaustive account on the band's
past by means of interviews with Schwadorf, Helm and the live musicians.
Therefore, "Into the Pantheon" is not only a must for fans, but also
serves as an ideal introduction for everybody who wants to get a
comprehensive overview of Empyrium.
