Satarial – Lunar Cross
Satarial are a Russian project by Lord Seth, who founded this project in 1993 (permanently joined by Angelika ‘Angel Bust’). Throughout the years he recorded five full lengths, yet since the last one, 2006’s LateXXX, Satarial seemed to fade away in oblivion. But now Lord Seth and his erotic theatre return with Lunar Cross, which will see the light (and its shadows) via Satanath Records, once again in co-operation with Metallic Media as well as Black Plague Records.
Lunar Cross lasts for about fifty minutes (the hidden track not included) and it is, as a matter of fact, very comparable in style to the former stuff. I did ‘meet’ the band during the second half of the nineties when I bought The Queen Of The Elves’ Land, but I wasn’t that impressed. And afterwards it didn’t really change that much, though Heidenlarm was remarkably stronger than the other Satarial-material. And well, still I am not blown away, but… the progression is truly huge!
