Choir of Young Believers — This Is For the White In Your Eyes [14/20 Watts]

Jannis Noya Makrigiannis embarks on his first full-length LP with This Is For the White In Your Eyes. Both eerie and fresh, the album continues to open the world of Scandinavian pop to the outside world. What sets it apart most though, is its instrumentation — a broad collection of classical and unconventional means, all combining to form an intimate and enjoyable experience. However, it’s the peaks and valleys of Makrigiannis’ vocal range that what will keep you coming back on this impressive debut.

BehemothEvangelion [17/20 Watts]

Behemoth’s latest effort, Evangelion, might just be the year’s heaviest and most lethal record. Its brash nature, and visceral vocal stylings, matched by an equally strong sense of melody, take it out of the general classification of “death metal” and into a category all its own. The album thrashes about brutally, in the type of display reserved for very few in 2009. Yet, the sense of mood, and skillful progressions feel smoother, and more natural than they have in the past. It’s a perplexing, yet welcome and encouraged change for the band which fans will surely take to.

Between the TreesSpain [9/20 Watts]

As Christian-influenced groups go, Between the Trees seemed to carve out a decent space for themselves with 2006’s The Story and the Song. Building on these subtle touches on religion, with a large emphasis on heartfelt melancholy, the band brings us Spain. Though more focused at times on the spiritual aspect they bring to the table, it does rope in just as many of the slow sentimental numbers as before. If you’re into this sort of thing, you may be pleasantly surprised.

WE GIVE IT: 14/20 Watts

The Vikings may have failed at world domination, but there is no doubt that “Nordic pop” is taking over the indie music scene. The wave of ambient soundscapes only started with the likes of Sigur Rós, tossing out acts like Kings of Convenience. This week, Jannis Noya Makrigiannis, the driving force behind one-man project Choir of Young Believers, will be revealing his own contribution to the genre. He made a stir with his debut EP Burn the Flag, and now he’s back with  full album This Is for the White in Your Eyes.

Makrigiannis definitely has something fresh to bring to the table. Most of his melodies have that eerie quality that the Scandinavian mainstream is so fond of, however he reworks the material in a much more dramatic direction. Continue reading
