Luttun. Philippe - The Taste of Wormwood (2013)
The fifth album from this French artist.
Philippe Luttun plays guitars, keyboards, programming and does the vocals here.
A female vocalist does the female vocals. There is a lot of them.
I have barely ever heard about mr Luttun before and have not his four previous albums. There is also some EPs he has released.
The music is a mix of neo-prog, goth metal, power metal, some folk music and some djent.
The music has this rock opera feel where we get various genres going head to head and sometimes colliding with each others. The female vocals, good as they are, also feels a bit operatic and rock operatic.
The music mixes a goth feeling with some more soft and a lot of hard pieces of music.
The music feels a generic though and I feel this is a well trodden path, this one hour long album.
The music is decent to good but does not offer up much excitement.
Check it out if rock operas is your thing.
