Symphonic elements in Metal is nowadays in fashion like never before. Bands like Therion made it largely popular and even way before neoclassical artists such as Ygnwie J. Malmsteen were amazing listeners with a blend of classical elements and Heavy Metal. But the German combo Haggard pushed this form of expression to a newer level with 2002's highly acclaimed "Awakening The Centuries". A full orchestra, a full choir and a very talented Metal base ranging from Heavy to Death Metal brought listeners to their knees. In this context, "Eppur Si Muove" surfaced in early 2004 and totally rocked my world.

Hello, i feel this album too crude. I dont see balance between Metal music and Classical (or instrumentated) music. I can remark for good this track "Herr Mannelig". =)

All elements of the album are flawless however, the combination isn't easy to understand in one sitting, will probably have to go back to this one again.

Asis vocals bring down what would be an almost perfect album in my opinion. This type of album would be much better with all clean vocals. I think growls would only fit if they were representing a villain or demonic character.

I really love this album, but if it didn't have growls, it could be my favourite album ever.


Growling makes the essence of this kind of their music Symphonic Gothic Metal, you can't deny. Maybe you are fond of Epic Symphonic Music only?

The ensemble were pretty good, but the growling frontman did absolutely nothing for me.

This is a masterpiece, and it is clearly their best album. Very beautiful music, throughout.
While I have absolutely no problems with the growls here, I can see why people do.
And I can imagine that we might have an equally brilliant album with exclusively clean vocals.
But hell, the growls belong to Haggard's music just as each of their countless instruments.
Highlights: Almost everything, but certainly All inzio e la morte and the titletrack.
