ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“… Their dark and calm ritual music recalls somehow alternatively In The Nursery, DCD, Sol Invictus and Vasilisk. Synthesizers, acoustic instruments and vocals are seized in exemplary fashion, and endowed with the purest sonorities… in no ways comparable to boredom”. MCFB, Ritual n°16 B

“…. this is rather good! Actually a duo of Leithana and Deraclamo belong to that neo gothic, semi religious sounding genre as widely explored by SPK and most popularly Dead Can Dance…. “
“ ……..an otherwise beautiful album”. A.F., Audion 1992

“Oh god, this is glorious…” “…..this is a celebration of music…”
“OES take Sol’s use of electronics and whereas the latter’s pierce the skin directly, OES use them as a swathe to enclose the the body and the spirit.”
“….OES have envisioned a grandiose offering of music which last for eternity. Theirs will not follow any cults or trends, but last forever. Life unfortunately doesn’t, so hear them NOW.” Unsigned review, The Empty Quarter n°2

« The result is a celebration ode… that will please Dead Can Dance and ritual music amateurs… If certain tracks are of classic making, others have to do with the Great Art, and let us feel intensely and alternately joy, sadness, pain, melancholy… This album will seduce and captivate those who like harmony, strong and ambiguous sensations, those who know how to listen with their soul and their Heart.” Unsigned review, Concept n° 2 06/1992 and L’Appel du Cerf 11/1991

« A great homage to the Winter Solstice and to music. Looking into the net that composes this very first album, you can feel an almost mystic vocation… suggestions admirably reflecting the magic of an enchanted music, at times light and clear as dew, at times worried and deep as a moonless night… Music that invites to silence… Twelve tracks interpreted in a superb way through vocals, guitars, keyboards and vibrating percussive layers leading to a thrill of Celtic paradises and surrounding romantic-decadent darkness. Impossible not falling in love with this passion, faith, sincerity… the fluid of inspiration that feeds the fire of emotions….”. Aldo Chimenti, Rockerilla Magazine, 01_1991

“When I listened to this first album of OES, which was recorded in the same studios used by C93, I thought I had to do with a new UK based project of obscure Druidic music, between dark neo-gothic experimentalism (Angoris Nox) and rare acoustic purity in Celtic/Renaissance style (De Fortuna). They are an Italian-French duo instead, based in Italy. This has certainly not modified the more-than-positive opinion that I have of this first album..” Vittore Baroni, Rumore Magazine, July-August 1992
