Staff review by

Most likely Chile's (or South America in general) longest-standing doom metal act, Poema Arcanus returns after 7 years. Continuous delays (not even mentioning Covid-19) have put several obstacles in the band's path, but Stardust Solitude sees the band getting out of that hole as victorious.

This is not sounding good.
Crackhead Megadeth reigns supreme.

This is good, I had a doubts about this one, old glory rust easy. Other think how band after so long silence can create good album? They did , it has more modern new vave of death doom riffs, but structure, spirit, vocals is same. Good come back album.
Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!

Dark Forever

The flow of the compositions is a bit weird sometimes, but it's by no means a bad album, slightly above average with some solid riffs and good vocals.

Surprised this is rated so low; it's not fantastic but it's definitely one of the better doom albums I've heard this year

Excelente album, con esos riffs desgarradores y atmosferas oscuras, lo mejor de este año

I do agree with his opinion though but I wouldn't give it a 10. A review will come soon. But spoilers: I think it's some of their best material and I will defend my high-ish grade.

Poema Arcanus is one of the great Doom Death bands worldwide, there is no doubt about that, their latest album is the most mature of the band and the best they have released, a lot of technique and exquisite slow melodies and an incredible guttural voice, they make it in a unique album, and essential for every metal lover; once a year your brain thanks you for listening to Poema Arcanus. Chile Metal Land !!!

I dunno, just couldn't click with it. There are some good sounds but most of ìt sort of fizzles out. The songs are too much all over the place. One of the weakest contenders in MS awards for doom metal album of the year.
Leeches everywhere.
