Review: Odradek Room latest album "Bardo. Relative Reality."

Ukranian band Odradek Room just released a new album called Bardo. Relative Reality. through Hypnotic Dirge Records. It is not Black Metal, they are actually labeled as Progressive Melodic Death/Doom Metal, but they are actually very Post-Metalish and good, that's why Lachryma Christi decided to include them on the reviews. This is a very busy time, but this record is so good that couldn't just be ignored.
So, basically this is a very slow, relaxed, doomish album with Black Metal influences, even if some of you probably won't agree. This is Lachryma Christi's honest opinion, this review couldn't just be random!
So this album has seven tracks and all of them are very intense, very melodic, only the voice is a bit different from anything else and it is still hard to make a comment on it, the only word that comes to mind is "monstrous" at times but very emotive and sensational and even suffered at other times, reminding a bit of My Dying Bride on those times.
There are a lot of atmospheric elements in almost all songs, they are all very pleasant and dreamy, if it can be put this way. If you just sit and close your eyes and listen to all songs carefully, you will have such a pleasant journey in front of you, it is really very beautiful and emotional. Very strong and reliable. 
This is the debut album of the band which formed in 2008 under another name, before they changed to Odradek Room in 2010. Hopefully they will keep bringing us good songs and albums in the future, so stay tuned.
