With the voice of Androniki Skoula who was educated in classical singing at the Hellenic Conservatory, Septic Flesh’s guitarist Christos Antoniou delivered with The Undivided Light the fifth full-length from Chaostar, the experimental orchestral operatic neo-classical side project of Christos.
While the predecessor Anomima from 2013 felt sometimes not as a whole, despite being an great album, on The Undivided Light Christos took things to an whole other level. From start to finish this album feels alive, The Undivided Light is one breathing organism and if you would take one song off the album, it just wouldn’t feel right anymore. Every song has an sort of romantic grim vibe that starts with Tazama Jua, the openings track, continues with Blutbad with it’s fantastic child voices in it, goes on with Stones and Dust where things become a little more epic and eventually stops with Ying & Yang, the last track.
Seven songs with an playing time for almost 43 minutes, the incredible voice of Androniki, the majestic and epic song writing from Christos and the capability’s from him to put everything so together that the whole album feels as one song, that’s what you get on The Undivided Light. I can do no more than to take my hat off for Chaostar for creating such an masterpiece.
