Requiem Aeternam has become unpredictable. Since their first album, Eternally Dying; their second, Philosopher; until their last, Destiny-Man, they have come to create a new style within metal music, which they call Philosophical Metal, since it combines and intertwines elements of music and philosophy. Exordium and Epitaph are two well-crafted acoustic guitar pieces inspired by Takemitsu and Villa-Lobos, two well-known classical composers –all songs on this album are inspired by different composers–. Destiny-Man and Requiem Aeternam (the song named this way) are simply outstanding, breaking all compositional patterns one by one. Pieces such as Existence, Vying and Perseverance are highly experimental, to the point that I would not know where they came from and where they are going. Freewill is already a classic as well as Purposiveness (they both have nice videos: www.youtube.com/requiemaeternam).
The lyrics are taken from Jose Romero Sum’s latest book, also named Destiny-Man. Even though I’m not much into philosophy, I truly respect what they’re doing here. They musicianship is simply killer! In short, Destiny-Man is the first philosophical metal album, ever. They have, no doubt, created a new style, and few people know about this. Be one of them…
