When two of Sweden’s more prolific metal musicians come together, you can usually expect an intriguing merger of the heavy music minded. Such is the case on TERRA by Cronian, a project featuring Borknagar’s Oystein G. Brun and Vintersorg’s Mr. V whose nine-track affair blends both men’s multi-faceted extreme musical influences with a keen sense of cinematic flare that is as much Dimmu Borgir as it is Dream Theater. Tapping into the prog-rock pretense yields results like the atmospheric seven-minute “Iceolated”, Cronian manages to showcase its orchestral nuances and black metal background simultaneously, a device which propels TERRA throughout this nine-track journey.
