Star of Ash - Ilter Viator

Star of Ash is a side project of Ihriel, the singer of Peccatum.

She got some valuable help here, by her husband Ihsahn from Emperor and Kristoffer “Garm” Rygg from Ulver.

Ilter Viator is a nice mixture of atmospheric music, orchestral epic soundscapes, electronic beats, goth concept and some heavy metal guitars which appears sometimes.

It’s a very nice album but very underrated.
My fav tracks are Death Salutes Atropos and Nudity of Light.

Juju is an incomparable masterpiece. The gothiest and most energetic moment of these english guys.

The music is dark, claustrophobic, hypnotic and disturbing. The post punk synthesis.
All the members did very fine but John McGeoch‘s guitars and Siouxsie‘s vocals are the very highlights.

More than an 80’s classic, this is one of the best rock albums of all time.
