Queen-of-Heaven-Queen-of-Hell-CD-CoverThe newest album from Inkubus Sukkubus is a real treat to listen to. You can tell that the band is truly coming into its own. The sound is more refined then previous albums and a different tempo then they would normally use. The tracks have a more ballad like feel and yet still able to keep and hold on to the gothic metal sound that they are so famous for. This is a real treat for the ears that you can just listen to and enjoy for hours on end.

As always the band’s music has a pagan quality to it and it shine through with style and at the same time has a message about caring and what happens when people just don’t give a damned about each other. If people were more accepting of that message this world would be a much better place then it is today. I say keep doing what you are doing Inkubus Sukkubus and don’t let anything change you or let anyone tell you to change what you are doing. The fans love you and that is really all that matters, them and the message that your music brings.

I was lucky enough to get a pre-release copy of the album and have listened to it at least 3 times today. It really is that good. What they did with this album shows the lessons that they have learned in making studio albums and it shows. It has a smoothness that most gothic metal just doesn’t have and yet it still manages to keep its edginess that the genre is famous for. There is also more Celtic influences with this album in the under tones and the canter to the music. I for one welcome the change and look forward to more of the same from this band. It gives the music more of a ballad feel and draws you into it. I just don’t see how a person would not like this album from Inkubus Sukkubus.

Here are some scans of the CD that I just received today for your enjoyment
