In Solitude surprised us all with their new record Sister, that is almost nothing compared with their latest record The World, The Flesh The Devil. Indeed they had transcended to a whole new level. But the band has not changed or abandon their ways, they like many other bands just evolved.
Sister can be described as a hard rock/classic rock record with a hint of gothic rock and a lot of dark eerie energy around it. I know, I know is not the traditional In Solitude sound that they had in their past two albums, but I guess something triggered in the minds of the band members at the time to create this album, and the result is what we got here.
Songs like Horses In The Ground, Lavender, and Death Knows Where step up as the deepest and darkest pieces I ever heard from this band. The metamorphosis of In Solitude goes beyond of their sound, it reflects a deep change within the way to perceived and create music, a perfect example of that is Inmost Nigredo which is the spookiest track I ever heard from them.
In Solitude had broken the rules and had evolved into something that we cannot see yet, and that would be more detailed perhaps in the next album or two, but one thing is for sure their mentality and dark attitude towards the world still there even if the package is different.
