GREEN CARNATION picture
Green Carnation are from Kristiansand, Norway. They formed in 1990 as a death-metal act, but did not release their first album until 2000. This is because shortly after having formed as Green Carnation, main composer Tchort left the band to join Emperor. The rest of the band continued/restarted under a new name: In the Woods.... Tchort decided to restart the band after In the Woods... disbanded, including some old In the Woods... members back into the band.

Their style is most often described as progressive doom metal, with avant garde elements, though their more recent material has been tending away from the 'doom' side. This is perhaps best exemplified by their latest album, The Acoustic Verses, an all-acoustic album almost entirely devoid of the doom metal sound of their previous work. However, in the inlay to The Acoustic Verses, main man Tchort stated that the band is in the

GREEN CARNATION The Quiet Offspring

This was the first GREEN CARNATION album i purchased and at the time i was surprised at how accessible it was knowing the relationship this band originally had with IN THE WOODS... And certainly the album cover made me think this was probably going to be a dark and atmospheric record. Well this is even more mainstream than the previous album "Blessing In Disguise". This is sort of conceptual album about childhood experiences. The pictures of the band members in the liner notes are of when they were children. This is a good rocking album but man i feel that their first two recordings have completely spoiled me for this more straight-forward style of music.

I still remember the first time i heard the opening track of this album, i couldn't believe it was the same band who created "Journey To The End Of The Night" and "Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness". That first track is especially catchy and straight-forward, in fact it's my least favourite song on here. I would soon find out that this album does have it moments but it pales when compared to the previous two recordings. The final track "Rain" is my favourite and maybe that's not so surprising since the lyrics were taken from poems written for the "Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness" sessions. That darkness and edge has been scaled way back and the songs are shorter as well. So a good album for sure but for me it's not worth the 4 stars.

While the debut was a very dark and depressing album, this the follow-up at least has lots of light in it. The subject matter is still about Tchort losing his daughter but it's shared through the "joy, inspiration and meaning" that his son has brought into his life. And so the music here is dedicated to his new son. Lots of beautiful pictures in the thick liner notes as well. Tchort refers to this recording as his musical legacy. One long 60 minute piece where Tchort can tell us about his feeling without being interupted. The three IN THE WOODS... members who were on the debut aren't here this time but Tchort does dedicate the lyrics to the Botteri brothers. The album starts with atmosphere and we can hear a child making sounds. Some killer stuff throughout the 60 minutes then the recording ends with the sound of a music box. Fantastic lyrics too. In my opinion this is a masterpiece just like the debut but man it has a completely different mood to it.

First of all i think i'm the only one on the planet who considers this a masterpiece so you can take this review with a grain of salt. I guess my love for the dark and heavy style of music helps with my appreciation of this one, but i'd also say the subject matter brings an important emotional element into it as well. Tchort the leader of this band lost his daughter to a tragic accident prior to this and this recording deals with his sufferings, questions and sorrow. It's like taking a trip into the darkest realm of someone's mind and witnessing their torment. The lyrics are so meaningful but then so is the music. The music to me is very similar to IN THE WOODS..., especially their "Omnio" album. In fact the Botteri brothers and Synne are here from that band and this is the only GREEN CARNATION album that they were a part of. No doubt helping an old friend. Just look at the titles of the songs here. There's no light on this record. Surprisingly the opening instrumental is the most emotional for me. It's called "Falling Into Darkness" and one can't help but think that's how Tchort felt when he heard the awful news. There's so much amazing music on this album though and i highly recommend it despite the depressing nature of it.

Not the greatest single song/track album ever made, but close enough to warrant a lot of consideration for those with broadening prog tastes and enough time on their hands to listen to an hour long piece of progressive metal of a pretty refined kind.

First things first, this would be a brilliant 50 minute song. Such as it is, there's quite a bit of gristle that could be shaved off some segments, and nothing of huge value would be lost. The style of music this album contains bridges progressive metal, doom metal and prog rock. It's a very busy album, with apparently over 600 instruments used in the recording process, a children's choir even. The lyrics are melancholy and somewhat dry throughout, though touchingly ambiguous and still interesting.

Green Carnation made an interesting album with Light of Day, and considering their doom metal roots on their first full length, took an adventurous path with it. Since this album they've gone onto full acoustic records also, so they've got no shortage of dexterity.

Overall, it's not quite a masterpiece, but it is a suitably bombastic and epic offering, and well worth checking out for any adventurous metal fan with an hour of time to spare.
