virgin black - requiem fortissimo
Requiem: Fortissimo
The End Records

Requiam: Fortissimo is the second entry in Virgin Black’s Requiem Trillogy. Compared to the first release in the series, Fortissimo is much more heavy and dark; more guitar-driven and doomier than the more string-driven, classical feel of Mezzo Forte. More of the growl and shriek vocals are used than the clean vocals, which adds to the dark feel of the music.

Overall, Virgin Black continues to be a fantastic dark band that shows great musical growth on each release, and Requiem: Fortissimo is another in a line of examples of this fact. I anxiously await their next release. Highly recommended for fans of Paradise Lost and My Dying Bride…
