This album stands out of the masses of releases in the Gothic Rock scene as a sort of epic medley, taking the listeners back to Fields of the Nephilim’s ‘Elizium’ years. With ‘The Reveries of Solitude’, ex-Opened Paradise mastermind Babis Nikou delivers a hearful-continuum crescendo of poetry and inspiration – an album that will please all fans of high quality Gothic Rock in its purest essence!
Angel's Arcana is an Gothic/Darkwave musical project from Greece, formed in 2015 by Opened Paradise guitarist and songwriter Babis Nikou. Taking care of all instruments, production and m ixing, he released an instrumental only debut album in 2016 and two regular albums on Swiss Dark Nights. The sound engages different genres of dark and atmospheric music, ranging from gothic and post rock to ambient and progressive soundscapes. In search for a wider musical ground.
A review for ‘Selva’ from 'Gothic Crypt': “A magnificent specimen of atmospheric dark rock music that transcends boundaries. Nephilim- esque guitar playing, Katatonia's melancholic gloominess and the ethereal ambience of Dead Can Dance, all entwined in a musical opus that is "Gothic" in its essence, as in dark, imposing, timeless. Gothic Crypt approves.”
