Forest of Stars, A - Opportunistic Thieves of Spring (2010)
I'm not really sure what to make of A Forest Of Stars. They're quite different to your average black metal band in that they incorporate a lot of alternative instruments. However they just don't really pull it off all that effectively. The vocals are disappointing. Some of the ambient interludes are nice. I find the drumming to be a bit sloppy during the faster sections. There is some atmosphere but the whole experience is a bit wishy washy & I can't really get into it much. It seems to lack some focus.
