Into The Mist is an Italian Gothic Rock band
that has presented a haunting presentation in Graveyard Of Stars that touches on
many styles in one album. Much of the melody gives a feel that is a fusion of
Rosetta Stone, and
Wake. The vocals in many of the tracks give a feel that is a hybrid
of mellow variations of Peter Murphy and Andrew Eldritch (minus the falsetto).
This combination in many of the songs gives a very somber feel in much of the
music that pulls from their Gothic Rock roots, but with a mellower undertone in
the music. This was a style that was symbolic of some of the music by
Angels Of Liberty, and Inkkubus Sukkubus that
made their music classics in Gothic Rock.
The music by Into The Mist in this album is very well laid out for the tone that
they were striving to create. The music fits the title of the album and really
does the genre justice in the music they present to the masses. If you like
mellow Gothic Rock with a hint of Dark Wave in the feel of the music then this
would be an ideal album for your collection. For a genre that has been around
for over 30 years, this is a good album to present aspects of Gothic Rock
showing that the genre still has a lot to offer those that like the darker side
Songs such as HMHNS give a very soft and haunting presentation to music
that really bring the talents of Into The Mist into focus. The song itself gives
an embrace into the darkness that gives sound to a silent graveyard evening.
Instants Of Forever and Wail Of The Sun bring proper focus to
the guitar. They show more of the iconic feel in the music that gives an ideal
representation of an aspect of Gothic Rock that reflects the music from the 80's
without sounding dated in the respective songs.
Overall, Graveyard Of Stars is a good representation of the soothing aspects of
Gothic Rock without losing the darker magic. This is a feat in itself that many
modern Gothic Rock bands struggle to create when presenting a duality of new
music that has the feel of the music of the past.
