After releasing magnificent Existence in 2005, the Germans Dark Suns unveils a new opus just as complex and psychedelic: Grave Human Genuine. Their third studio album is a real achievement, close to the progressive sounds of Pain Of Salvation, Opeth or Porcupine Tree. Nonetheless, Dark Suns asserts its own artistic identity. The album was released in a Jewelcase format edition but also in a Digipack limited edition. Like Existence, the opus was released on the label Prophecy Productions.

Dark Suns style has evolved, actually, you can heard through Grave Human Genuine the total lack of Death influences they had in Swanlike. The only passages where Niko Knappe use growls is to pronounce the dark and melancholic moods of their music. This album disseminates lot of dark moods that you can retrieve in those of Doom Metal. Kristoffer Gildenlöw (former member of Pain Of Salvation) provides beautifully, on bass, additional items that completes those established by other members.

We start with Stampede, an instrumental track quite complex and technical which introduces us in a tortured mood. Followed by the song Flies Amber, Niko Knappe is accompanied with Vurtox (Disillusion). Both propose a mosaic of sounds that blends wonderfully to give an emotionally intense achievment.

The followed song, Thornchild, will keep us in the previous crazy atmosphere. Afterwards, Rapid Eyes Moment comes to calm down minds, a more quite moment but equally bleak. The next song to come is the very special and surprising Amphibian Halo. A pure wonder music very original. Although the influences Death put aside, we can however find with The Chameleon Defect, a song with more energy that impels us to pick up the darkness of each of us in the depths of our souls. Free Of You is close to Rapid Eyes Moment, calm after the storm. We end our adventure with the excellent Butterfly, providing us a magical moment.

Style of this album is closer to Pain Of Salvation or Anathema than Opeth. What Dark Suns offer us is very complicated and difficult to access. To soak environments, we must listen several times the album. The members of Dark Suns unfolds much more, personally, I was conquered!
