Vous aimez le Death mélodique ? Vous adorez la musique classique ? Et bien Hollenthon propose le meilleur des deux mondes !
Impossible de ne pas faire référence à Therion qui se serait mis au Death !
Choeurs, parties orchestrales omni-présentes, mélodies de qualité, section Metal puissante, production à la hauteur (ce qui est une obligation pour ce type d'album !), tout est réuni pour faire de Opus Magnum une référence dans le genre !
Ce groupe mérite de cartonner, et ce depuis ses débuts, et cet album vient encore le confirmer !

TWISTED METAL 10 juin 2008
Par EMAN NEP - Publié sur
Format: CD
Austria's HOLLENTHON is back to please your ears with more symphonic/black metal-ish goodness. As far as genre's go HOLLENTHON has always been hard to categorize, which is a good thing if you want to listen to something different.

My review covers the Mp3 version of the album. I downloaded the promising-sounding tracks yesterday and I did not hear any voice overs, so it seems that this issue complained about in earlier reviews has been fixed.

"On the Wings of a Dove" -- Despite the innocent title, this song is anything but. Starts off symphonic and guitar-heavy, weaving Gregorian-like choirs in and out. It's almost funny hearing the singer growl "on the wings of a Dove!!" But key words in the lyrics like "nuclear winters" and "ash to ash, dust to dust" let you know that this song is not some flowery happy song, although it does have its softer moments provided by the choirs.

"To Fabled Lands" -- The next track has the same musical ingredients as the last but there is a really good guitar part at 1:30.

"Son of Perdition" -- Starts off with trumpets before going into guitars and grunts. Clear female vocals make a short but refreshing debut towards the end.

"Ars Moriendi" -- Starts out like "Vilest"-era HOLLENTHON. Another good guitar part around 2:45. There are choirs and female opera-like vocals, but they are used sparingly.

"Misterium Babel" -- This last track harkens back to their first album which was filled with Middle-Eastern sounds. Slow and more mellow with clear male vocals and growling, yet still maintaining a hypnotic quality to it.
EDIT: The first part of this song is played on a FIREFLY episode (the one with the brothel, I believe).

Finally, once again there is some creative and twisted artwork for their album.

Honestly I wasn't too impressed with this album on my first listen, but after a few more it slowly starts to sink in. HOLLENTHON along with MENHIR prove that even after 6-7 years between albums you can still create a winner.

Symphonic Black Prog Metal at its finest 22 janvier 2009
Par Pauly Paranthropus - Publié sur
Format: CD

The CD cover to Hollenthon's "Magnum Opus" depicts a creature with hundreds of arms reaching towards the sky. It's an appropriate image to convey the over-the-top complexity that forms Hollenthon's multi-faceted sound. I was already a fan of Hollenthon's two previous albums "Domus Mundi" and "With Vilest Of Worms To Dwell" so they had a lot to live up to with "Opus Magnum". I have an open mind to be sure but I was still wary of Hollenthon's new tour de force being able to live up to my lofty expectations after being a fan of their thunderous predecessors. Well, Hollenthon have won me over and will likely ensnare many of you extreme metal with the eight remarkable compositions on "Opus Magnum".

Hollenthon arises from the ranks of twisted death metallers Pungent Stench and is led by multi-instrumentalist Martin Shirenc. With their first album "Domus Mundi", Hollenthon set a precedent for bombastic, multidimensional metal with their complex blend of classical, Middle Eastern, black metal, death metal and power metal influences. At the time, it was a unique concoction. "With Vilest Of Worms To Dwell" followed in 2001 and continued Hollenthon's creative streak and still managed show up the competition with its multi-pronged assault. And finally, we have "Opus Magnum", a not so modest title for a grandiloquent album that's another striking foray into the symphonic, multi-metallic universe and a worthy successor to the Hollenthon canon.
Shirenc and crew have unleashed an album that's saturated with intelligence and intricacy. Hollenthon have a way of making their symphonic neo-classical sound accessibility without sacrificing their intelligence. You can still love traditional metal and really enjoy the pomp that Hollenthon create.

While many ostentatious metal bands rely on sometimes-overlong songs and albums that squeeze into a 79 minute CD, Hollenthon keep their musical attacks around the five minute mark with only one song just passing eight minutes. Since I'm a progressive rock fan, I was hoping that there would be more lengthy epics to fill my hungry soul but Hollenthon have opted for a leaner approach. The songs alternate between bludgeoning riffs and softer interludes and for every moment of brutality and heaviness, there are plenty of melodic moments to complement the mix. There are also plenty of choral elements that sound as if a real chorus of both men and women was hired. Add to this Shirenc's wife adding beautiful vocal passages and you have an approximation of a true symphonic metal band. Shirenc's lead rasps also lend a certain malevolence to the whole sordid affair here. Production and song-wise, "Opus Magnum" scores major points.

Hollenthon would have us believe that they're a symphonic black metal band and that what they're selling is worth our limited attention spans and cash. "Opus Magnum" may well be a worthy purchase with its bombast and epic scope that's nearly on par with fellow pompous metallers like Dimmu Borgir and Therion. In fact, Hollenthon surpassed my expectations. In a world where trailblazers like Dimmu Borgir, Emperor and Cradle of Filth have led the symphonic black metal revolution and wowed many of us fans, Hollenthon has formed a minor classic with "Opus Magnum" and have succeeded in creating a unique and worthy addition to the hallowed halls of the extreme metal world.

The best Hollenthon yet! 7 juillet 2008
Par Proggy McGee - Publié sur
Format: CD
I own the previous two Hollenthon albums, With Vilest Worms to Dwell and Domus Mundi, and I consider this to be their strongest effort to date. I understand that a sample copy with copyright voice-overs was being sold on Amazon for a while, which prompted some anger and a couple of one star reviews. This version of Opus Magnum is the real deal and is exceptional in every way. Hollenthon has even thrown in some very nice guitar solos, which were lacking in the last two cds. Be prepared to be impressed! I am very happy with this music.
Upper-tier American black metal 18 juillet 2014
Par A. Stutheit - Publié sur
Format: CD
Blending together heavily symphonic black metal with elements of European death metal, metalcore, and a tiny dollop of grind is not exactly a novel concept anymore. Winds Of Plague, Abigail Williams, The Faceless, and even Cryptopsy all experimented with this "symphonic deathcore" sound circa 2008. But none of that really matters when you are the originator. Such is the case when it comes to Austria's Hollenthon, who began specializing in melding together all four genres into one cohesive, huge sound, all the way back in 1999. (Hence, calling Hollenthon an imitator would be like saying Black Sabbath were a Johnny-come-lately to the sludge/doom metal scene.)

The band continue striving towards a near-perfect, or at least seamless, equilibrium on their third full-length record, 2008's "Opus Magnum." And even though the attempt at attaining a perfect equilibrium is not yet entirely complete, no one should be able to argue that at least Hollenthon do this type of genre as well as, if not better than, the vast majority of the competition. And on the whole, "O.M." lands at some point between Dimmu Borgir, Cradle Of Filth, Arch Enemy, At The Gates, Hatebreed, Fear Factory, and Lamb Of God.

Tracks like "Bazaar" and epic opener "On The Wings Of A Dove" skillfully balance abrasive, charging death metal and symphonic, Dimmu-esque black metal. They flirt with brief little symphonic flourishes, but are primarily centered around catchy, staccato chugging, punishing, interlocking blast beats, and Shagrath-styled black metal gargling. The end product perfectly contrasts melody, nuance, and atmosphere with blistering, heads-down death metal. Other cuts, like "Ars Moriendi" (which is adorned by some very exceptional and memorable guitar soloing), the bass-heavy "To Fabled Lands," and the blistering "Dying Embers" (a ripper backed by buzzsaw riffing and thundering drum blasts) play more like full-on death metal, utilizing symphonic touches only minimally, and instead choosing to terrorize the neighborhood in an old-fashioned kind of way.

Conversely, however, there is also plenty of black metal-leaning melodic material to be had, here, though, too. "Son Of Perdition" and "Once We Were Kings" weave in a wailing female backing vocal line into its otherwise completely dissonant mix of snarly black/death metal vocals, thunderous riffing, and galloping drums. And if that weren't enough, the former of these two tracks is also highlighted by some trumpet accompaniment (!), and even goes so far as to drop in an exotic, Middle Eastern-sounding instrumental melody to help keep things a little unpredictable.

And last but far from least, one must not forget to also mention the record's two final highlights: "Of Splendid Worlds" is a gorgeous, mid-tempo brooder that augments some decent guitar soloing with a docile, piano-driven section; and "Misterium Babel" opens with a few soulful, siren-like female vocals and foreboding, spoken-word male vocals before taking a page out of the "Transylvanian Hunger"-era Darkthrone playbook by delving into a seemingly Arabian-music-inspired instrumental melody. Needless to say, it all makes for one very complex and multi-faceted, eight-and-a-half-minute-long epic, let me tell ya!

"Opus Magnum" is not without a few boring and thus forgettable parts. When taken on the whole, though, it is a very solid and convincing take on the black metal genre, and certainly one that differs from the norm. So when mining the material found on this record, it becomes readily apparent that "O.M." is, in a small part, useless rubble, and part diamond in the rough, but mostly pure gold. As such, it is a worthwhile endeavor for all black and death metal enthusiasts.
Black Symphonies 10 septembre 2011
Par Justin G. - Publié sur
Format: CD
2008's Opus Magnum is the third epic masterpiece from Austrian metal band Hollenthon, which is essentially a one-man project by Pungent Stench member Martin Schirenc. It's hard to say exactly where Hollenthon's sound lies. Is it death metal? Black metal? Blackened death? Whatever you call it, Hollenthon's sound incorporates elements of death and black metal as well as epic symphonic elements, vocal choirs and exotic instruments. It's like evil soundtrack metal that's somewhere between Therion and Dimmu Borgir.

Opus Magnum is very similar to Hollenthon's debut Domus Mundi in its grand scale and perfect mix of the glorious and the guttural. Blastbeats and neck-snapping rhythms are paired with sweeping orchestral sounds. Sinister growled vocals give way to tranquil female vocals (and no, this isn't one of those "beauty and the beast" bands) and dramatic choirs and back again. The melodies are incredible and exotic, and the whole album is just an awesome experience.

Opus Magnum is another incredible epic from Hollenthon, and deserves to be heard by anyone who's a fan of bands like Dimmu Borgir, Stormlord, Therion, Melechesh and Nile. If you're a fan of epic, symphonic metal (and can handle the aggression and harsh vocals), chances are you'll be blown away by this one.

Edition Notes: The limited edition version of Opus Magnum comes in a digipack and includes the bonus track "Bazaar," which is actually a cover of the old Tea Party song. There is also a video clip for "Son of Perdition."
