Staff review by
Beatrik after their debut album "Journey through the End of Life" returned during 2005 with their second attempt, "Requiem of December", and all I can say is that for one more time they released a really wonderful and depressive album.

Doom/black metal is what Beatrik play and they do it in the most appropriate way offering six compositions that breathe death, sorrow and desperation in the heavy air. What someone may notice are the Deinonychus references, a bit on the music (guitar sound/riffing etc) and especially on the vocal factor with the tormented screams. Frozen Glare Smara's vocals bring forth memories of Marco Kehren for sure at times, but they never reach Kehren's extremely heart-rending screams. This doesn't mean he's not a good vocalist, on the contrary, he's a wonderful interpreter and makes the already lachrymose atmosphere way more intense and soul-crushing!
