Why this particular album as Evening of Light’s first eclipse review, you might ask. At first sight, Geisterfaust is an odd one out, compared to most of the music we (shall) discuss at the site. Still, I believe this record expresses better than many others what EoL is all about.
As some readers will recall, I concluded my eclipse review of Geisterfaust - the very first on this website - with the observation that its ending left many avenues open for its followup. Now, three years on, that followup is here, and I was a bit surprised by the results at first.
