Album "The Empyrean Liturgy" (2022) from the Serbian band Monasterium Imperi
"The Empyrean Liturgy" (2022) - truly unique album, which includes ten musical compositions. There are no words in the musical compositions of the album, they are church hymns and that is why this album is original. To date, this genre is not popular, however, listening to musical compositions album, you can see how slowly on the skin goosebumps…
Church hymns of the album without words tell about the planet Earth, about the cradle humanity, about the frailty and at the same time the ruthlessness of this world, telling how beautiful it is after all. Perhaps it should be noted once again that all these musical compositions tell the listener without a single word. Isn't this the impeccable talent of musicians? Tell a story using music, not words.
listening chants for the first time, it can be concluded that they evoke longing about the past, cause pictures in my head ancient, huge, cold cathedralsthat are full of darkness and gloom. But once you listen to these compositions for the second and third time, it immediately becomes clear that they are not about the past at all, but about future, what about pretty attractive and bright the future. Monastic vocals, as this genre of criticism is called, provides an opportunity to contemplate the truth in a distant and possibly dark future. One way or another, each listener forming one's own opinion regarding this album, so the musical compositions are better just listen, you can do it by the way below.
