J'apprécie ce groupe et cet album est assez original et différent de ce que ce à quoi on pourrait s'attendre... Le seul morceau (et quel morceau!!...) dure plus d'une heure mais on se régale... Les styles s'y métissent : des sonorités planantes peuvent rencontrer des riffs bétons et des voix sensuelles (attention : chair de poule assurée entre la 33ème et 37ème minute...), le tout agfréablement orchestré même si je déplore quelques enchaînement qui hachent trop la fluidité de l'ensemble, d'où mes 4 étoiles seulement...

Ce n'est pas du gros death brutal, ni du trash, ni du black; c'est un peu du n'importe quoi mais calme et quelque fois ça repose les oreilles, ça peut pas faire de mal ( à petite dose, bien sur).
C'est plutot des passages planants voire à la pink floyd mélangés à des moments un peu plus heavy sur UN SEUL morceau de près d'UNE HEURE.
En fait, ça passe plutot bien.On perd un peu la notion du temps en l'ecoutant.
C'est un bon petit cd, pas le meilleur de l'année mais il s'ecoute bien.Sa prod est honnete ( aurait pu etre meilleure, je trouve, pour le genre) , je le trouve bien construit dans son originalite(1 morceau = 1 heure, il faut le faire)
Si vous voulez un album tranquille ou de musique d'ambiance pourquoi pas, n'hesitez pas.

Le renouveau du rock viendrait-il du nord de l'Europe ? Les Vikings auraient-ils investi la planète du prog metal ? En tout cas, des groupes comme Green Carnation ou leurs compatriotes de Circus Maximus n'ont pas à rougir de la comparaison avec les grands maîtres du genre de l'autre côté de l'Atlantique, comme Dream Theater.

Que dire de "Light of Day, Day of Darkness" ? C'est un OVNI dans le monde du rock, on dépasse ce que faisait le grand Pink Floyd des années 70 : Un seul titre d'1 heure. Mais quel morceau ! Inégal certes (un peu déroutante cette partie vocale), mais jamais ennuyeux. On passe du rock le plus dur aux rythmes les plus doux. Du grand, du très grand. D'autant que les norvégiens confirmeront leur talent dans les oeuvres ultérieures.

Ne le ratez pas...

HASH(0x96041840) étoiles sur 5 Dreamlike, ingenious 15 avril 2002
Par Lord Chimp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
In a perfect world I'd have heard of this album months ago and bought it the day it was released, so I would not have missed having it for so long. In the vein of A Pleasant Shade of Gray (by Fates Warning), Light of Day, Day of Darkness is entirely _one_ song, filling the album up to about 60 minutes. This is a fantastic, seemingly unheralded album.
I don't know who this Tchort guy is or what he's done in the musical world, but I'm convinced he's a talented man. This CD is his baby. "Light of Day, Day of Darkness" plays out in ebbs and flows of aggressive, crunchy metal passages and gorgeous, placid soundscapes, with influences ranging from folk to gothic to ambient to opera. Instrumentation runs the gamut of a traditional metal lineup to a wealth of non-metal ingredients: strings, saxophone, sitar, opera choirs, children choirs. There is a lot of B3 organ which imbues a certain "classic" feel. Needless to say, this is not your run-of-the-mill CD.
Listening to this album is a dreamlike experience, even during the heavy moments (of which there are many). When you wake after a dream you try and recall details, and yet they elude memory. The first several listens of "Light of Day, Day of Darkness" are similar. When the album ends for the first time, you try to reassemble seemingly disparate musical threads in your mind, but they are fleeting. It takes many of listens to piece this album together entirely, for the cohesion is deeply hidden. Musical passages lead you on in a haze of multifaceted musical realms united through ingenious arrangements and creativity. Recurring motifs are very subtle, excepting the album's main theme which plays out several times. Often, unity is generated by reusing just a single bar, or reintegrating a 5-note melody on a different instrument. All the transitions are very smooth musically, and they seem more so because this is all happening on one track. (In contrast, the aforementioned A Pleasant Shade of Gray divides itself into 12 tracks to separate sections of the overall "suite" and so the listener can navigate to different parts easily. Dream Theater's recent "Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence" does the same thing.)
Naturally, it's much easier to describe a normal 5-minute -- or even 10-minute -- song than this 60-minute titan. It's just difficult to explain how it all comes together. You have your crunchy metal, and then there's myriad other elements looped around it. Some passages set grandiose string crescendos over pounding drums. Others have acoustic guitar with a delicate keyboard accompaniment. Some parts bring in weird, cosmic synthesizers. A big chunk of the 30-40 minute zone is taken up by misty sonics and a female vocalist singing wordless melodies (at one point she makes a weird fluttering effect with her voice). As the song goes through all these changes, Tchort orchestrates the movements with perfect build-up to heavier moments and skillful withdrawal into quiet passages. The "flow" of the song is just perfect.
The nondescript and deadpan vocals of Kjetil Nordhus work _perfectly_ with the overall sound. Outside of this album, I don't think I'd like them. One of those hyper-vibrato/falsetto power metal singers wouldn't have fit, that's for sure. When he sometimes gets drowned out by the metal sections, even this seems to fit within the album's dreamy context. He is not so much a _lead_ part of the music, but another thread in an elaborate tapestry. Some of the metal sections' rhythms come across a bit rigid because the drumming is sometimes amort (a few times I think I could predict the fills), but most of the riffs are heavy and memorable. At about the 16:00 mark, this killer riff comes in but it's only used briefly...too bad, because I liked it. Under this riff, the drumming continues to grow more intense until the heaviness retracts again.
Some night, jump in the car, throw Light of Day, Day of Darkness in the CD player, and drive around in the country for an hour. It will be a good experience.

HASH(0x96041894) étoiles sur 5 Masterful 29 avril 2002
Par C. A. Spellman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
By now you may have already run across the acclaim this album is getting and are already itching to get your hands on it. Allow me to give you the added incentive to hurry and do just that because the raving praise this album has garnered thus far from critics elsewhere is justly deserved. Now, here is my own breakdown.
GREEN CARNATION's inception into the Metal community was not a good one from my vantage point. Their first release reeked of directionless confusion and dulled me into the next dimension. Had I walked away and ignored the band after that first release I would have truly missed out on one of the most majestic Metal releases in, well, decades really. Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness is quite nearly this decade's answer to PINK FLOYD's The Wall of the1970's. Not surprisingly that comparison transcends not just the 25 or so years separating those two releases and the obvious genre difference but the atmosphere this album carries with it is at times not too far from that established by PINK FLOYD in their heyday.
The album is one track. That's right - one song. Well, truthfully its really several songs that have been amalgamated into one but there are several seamless transitions that create the illusion of one long and journeyed composition. The only problem I had with this is that I can't advance to sections of the song because all cd players will read this as one track at 60 minutes plus. Not a problem when you consider that you'll be absorbed for the majority of your listen anyway. This is what makes this release so incredibly good - the sheer captivation of your senses.
The album begins with haunting synthesization and the innocent ramblings of a playful child (band leader Tchort's son in fact). As the slow drumming steps in and the album begins its lengthy journey the mood is immediately set and the emotion begins flowing at once. Because there are so many differing elements to this album its too time consuming and cumbersome to cover every transition but suffice it to say that the fluidity of this album is startling. Waves and crests of emotive strings and keys and the backdrop of an enormous ensemble of guest musicians (numbering around 30 or more including a children's choir and opera choir) create an epic and majestic musical portrait of the deepest scope. While there is heavy emphasis on supportive elements on this album let one not forget that this is a Metal album above all things. Heavy guitars drive and steer this beast across its many landscapes of emotional depth with the listener riding the steady wave of triumph and tragedy, sorrow and consolation, that the album seems keenly geared toward building. Its a towering success. Deep into the album there are some bizarre experiments with female chants, which while adding a very odd and eclectic quality, are perhaps a bit too overbearing in length but they add a chill to your spine and alter the mood once again.
Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness is a dark album when you step away from it and view (or hear as it were) it from a perspective of totality. However, to call this simply Doom Metal is criminal. This is so much more and genre classification is completely defied. Allow me to call it Ambient/Doom/Epic/Orchestral Metal. Actually that doesn't do it justice and its likely you won't be able to label this with anything currently in the Metal subgenre arsenal. Its just too far out. GREEN CARNATION have created an album that rocks, that saddens, that nurtures, that gives hope then takes it away, that weeps and then dries the tears with breezes of melody. I picture this musical tapestry as a succession of hills and valleys with changing weather patterns and an endless horizon. So yes, its really good see?
A few notes. No death growls, just clean singing and well done too. If I had to name band's for comparison I couldn't do it save for the aforementioned PINK FLOYD mention and I think if PINK FLOYD were a Metal band this is probably the direction they'd pursue. I'm tempted to bring OPETH into the equation but not even OPETH have tried anything this bold and artistic to date. Truly this is just GREEN CARNATION. And that folks, is brilliant.
This is mandatory. That's all - mandatory. Its also one of the top 5 releases of 2001 and might just go down as one of the top 5 of the past two decades. Now go get it, bring it home, turn down the lights, listen and dream....

HASH(0x96041ccc) étoiles sur 5 An unparalleled musical journey 21 octobre 2002
Par Ironblayde - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I must admit, I was a little skeptical of this when I first picked it up. This album comprises a single song that just passes the one-hour mark, and I wasn't sure what to think of that. I figured it might very well be a series of shorter songs, strung together by someone who wanted to write an hour-long song just for the sake of doing so, without the benefit of track breaks. I was wrong.
For all its length, "Light of Day, Day of Darkness" never gets boring, never makes you want to skip forward to a later part of the disc. It is clear that this was conceived as a unified whole, and it works very well. The song was composed entirely by Tchort, who used to play bass for Emperor back in the days of "In the Nightside Eclipse," but those looking for black metal will have to look elsewhere. This song is as emotional as it is atmospheric, and has a surprising level of diversity. It runs the gamut from crushing heavy metal riffs to operatic vocals that wouldn't be out of place in the score of an epic film. This is beautiful music, and something that requires you to pay attention through several listens to pick up on everything that's going on.
I'm not exactly sure how to categorize this. It's one of those albums that defies traditional genre boundaries, and that's part of what makes it so interesting. After about a dozen listens through this one, I think I can safely say that it's one of the best metal releases so far this year. Buy it without hesitation.

HASH(0x959300b4) étoiles sur 5 Light of Day, Day of Green Carnation 20 septembre 2002
Par E. Peltier - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
One track, one hour long! That's ambition. More than 40 musicians, 150 track recording
and 600 samples! Now that's excess. One man composed, arranged, mixed, co-produced
and conducted the effort. Now that's dexterity.
Yet, that is exactly what Green Carnation's latest offering is in its most simple form.
Though, the music itself is anything but "simple." The creative aspect entailed in "Light of
Day..." includes a wide ranging variety of textures and layers to paint a sonic portrait that
demands the listener's attention throughout the epic journey.
Meandering from one mood to the next nearly seamlessly while maintaining a thematic
quality throughout the piece, mastermind Tchort provides an emotional rollercoaster of
pastoral darkness that is as much in line with gothic atmosphere as it is progressive nature.
It is a unique balance of ethereal and doom which grows out of simply crafted melodies
which are then subtly embellished until they build into a near wall of sonic exuberance.
To pigeonhole this effort as mere artistic extravagance would diminish the genius in the
architecture utilized to create it. The entire endeavor top-to-bottom represents an venture
so grand in scale that to critique any single aspect outside of the whole would not do
justice to the beauty of the creation.
It can not be stated enough that "Light of Day..." transcends the traditional concept album
in that it flows as a single unified creation just water in a river would flow as opposed to
several individual ideas strung together as drops of water come together into a puddle.
Being absorbed in the composition is the goal, hence the reason why there are not even
sub-tracks on the recording. Not that fast-forward is necessary, but rewind might be
helpful to fully comprehend as the ambiance is akin to a fall breeze.
Experience all there is to experience between the light of day and the darkness of Green
Carnation.

Format: CD Achat vérifié
This is the CD I would take on a long trip if I was limited to one item. It is a fabulous kaleidoscope of sounds that captivate your senses through this marathon, one hour(YES 60 MINUTES)song/album. The Gods surely whispered in Tchort's ear(the band leader and composer)while he wrote this masterpiece, for it smacks of divine intervention. What is amazing is the fact that it manages to hold your interest (it really absorbs you) and keep you coming back for more. In fact when I first listened to it I was in my car and it mesmerized me. I wouldn't stop driving because I didn't want to stop the music. I keep driving for an hour even though I only went to the post office 2 miles away.

Light of Day, Day of Darkness

Now what about the music? It is impossible to describe this music but I will try. A soft synth starts out this masterpiece which is soon joined by a subtle tea kettle whistle and some light guitar and drum work at the two minute mark. A childs voice can be heard in the background as the vocalist starts his agonized, melancholy singing about the 2:40 mark. This continues for about a minute and then after a heavy metal interlude is joined by a choir, then after another minute a very crunchy guitar comes in with the singer until the 6:30 mark, whereupon we slow down again and get reflective for about two minutes when the guitars and choirs very heavily chime in. At about 10:50, as good as the music is so far, Green Carnation is just getting warmed up, the music gets even better and we've barely gotten started.

I haven't mentioned the symphonic orchestra yet but their presence, mostly in the background, is invaluable. At the eleven minute mark the guitars, choirs and orchestra come together for a half minute leading to a drum and guitar interlude. Violins join in and take over at 12:40 and then the singer comes in joined by the crunchy guitars, singing "I think therefore I am, You are a fantasy made by me, I dream this world, When I end, the world will end with me, I am everything you are".

We are now at the 18 minute mark, at a slow heavy guitar part where the male choir sings for about two minutes and then solo for another minute culminating at one of my favorite parts. At twenty-two minutes and counting Green Carnation puts on their Pink Floyd hats for about five minutes and then becomes Green Carnation again until halftime(about 32 minutes).

At the 32 minute mark, a seemingly unrelated five minute section with a solo saxophone and lady singer makes it's appearance. I love lady singers but not this one and I find this section jarring and distracting in a most flawless performance otherwise.

At the 38 minute mark we return to the dark brooding passages that we experienced at the 18 minute mark, then a nice keyboard section that sounds slightly Pink Floydish again. This section also contains a great whining guitar solo. Now at 44 minutes(only three quarters of the way through), the music gets reflective again via our great singer and a plunking guitar changing to an organ at 46:30, then the pace picks up with the crunchy guitar a minute later.

At the 50 minute mark, the singer and both choirs join the crunchy guitar with a little up tempo section which leads us back to our half time singer and the full orchestra doing they're exceptional imitation of 'Salome' sitar and all. Back to the familiar G.C. sound and beat at 53:30 for a couple a minutes, then slow acoustic guitar and violins, leading to an ethereal sound and a baby talking. Then the Grand Finale and it is wonderful. If you think this sounds like a symphony or an opera, IT IS!!
