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 Deied, Rosetta Stone, and The 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 Corpus Delicti, 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 of Rock.
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.
