One rainy night I was visited by a pale figure. He came through the gust of wind. I forgot to close the windows. All of a sudden his tall figure was in front of me. I protested that I am still watching the latest episode of Bones. But without much adieu, my tea cup shattered to pieces against the wall. And I was swept away by cold hands.
Dark chocolate diamonds poured from all sides as I listen to the aural sorcery of LeVant. Dark, part brooding, part ethereal-a perfect soundtrack for the rainy night. But you better not be alone.
The Goth in me loves this. I am sure kids who grew up listening to Diary of Dreams, Dead Can Dance, This Mortal Coil and Rasputina will love this work from a gifted Romanian composer.
Through Heaven’s Grace is the carrier single. It is a symphonic piece wrapped in chill out drums, choir and electronic harmonies. It makes me curious of its creator George D. Stanciulescu , and his obsession with spirituality and the human condition. LeVant is a potent project that digs into your veins like a vampire’s kiss…after the long day-comes the night.
