Staff review by
Avrigus come from Australia and consist of Judy Chiara and Cruciform/s former member Simon Gruer moving in atmospheric/symphonic doom metal soundcapes evoking a devout dark atmosphere surrounding you. "The Secret Kingdom" is Avrigus' debut album after one EP, "The Final Wish", and is a very promising one for the atmospheric doom metal scene since both members combine their influences and personal ideas in such a wonderful way; Chiara's lyrics are deeply esoteric and they are written in a poetic mood evoking emotion pacing with her beautiful melodic voice that harmonizes with the guitar riffing at times whilst at others melancholic guitar chords and the overall devout, serene and melancholic at times whilst at others dark and emotionally intense atmosphere.

An interesting mixture of (new) My Dying Bride, Dead Can Dance and (old) Elend with a lot of melancholy. Unfortunately, this album lacks some real highlights and songs to remember.
