Haunted track list: I Am of Wolf And The Pale Horse Gateway Through Fire and Decay To Become Legend Empty Vessels Osi
LUCIAN THE WOLFBEARER
A really interesting band that is a really pleasant solo project. The album Haunted is a mix of doom and folk, which is a slightly unusual yet graceful combination. Sean M. Kratz hails from Cleveland and he does all the instrumentals and vocals with guest star guitarists.
The artwork is very Celtic (Tree of Life) whilst donning a logo and name that isn't in any way similar to the cover design. Album was released on February 20, starting off a great new year in the first quarter.
The first track is a nice intro entitled, “I Am of Wolf”. Calming instrumentals blending into one another, like a studio jam gone right.
Next is, “And The Pale Horse” which blew my mind. Truthfully, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Sean’s works could be comparable to Pallbearer, both vocally and instrumentally. This is a very well done album.
Third in line is, “Gateway”. Again, Pallbearer similarities with a hint of wolf. After the first minute of the song, the vocals sound more Tiamat influenced. All in all, a very powerful song.
