Isenordal’s music clearly holds influences from metal genres such as doom and black although the metal guitar cant be found on Spectral Embrace. Think of something like dark, neo-classical folk and that fits Isenordal from the USA perfect.
With Cello, Violin, Percussion, Organ, and Piano you can make music that is dark and grim and yet sweet and beautiful at the same time. Isenordal uses three vocalists where the serene female voices have the most part of Spectral Embrace. The influences from doom and black arent strange if you know that Isenordal actually is a pagan black doom band, started in 2013. Spectral Embrace should probably be seen as some sort of acoustic album or maybe as an album that the band needed to make, sort of artistic expression.
I’m glad Isenordal did it, the music on Spectral Embrace is fantastic and reaches into the soul where it can be used for happiness of sorrow, choose your own path and let the music guide you.
