In under 60 minutes and 4 songs only, “The Forest Seasons” grows bigger and larger as the listener give in to it. It will not be your fast consumable album that you listen for a week and forget in the shelf. It requires an above average dedication to the style to understand how big this “little” 4 song assembly is, comparing to the noise coming out every other month from albums with more than double the tunes in the track list.
It doesn’t sound much fresher than “Time I” but it refreshes the need for more music from Jari´s conceptual mind. It doesn’t even try to be better than its predecessor, but shouts out the pointed failing details of it, filling the gap.
Mix/Mastering related, the epic vibe is still in their instrumental components and the voice is just too great to put in words. Jari is screaming his lyrics with an awesome feeling. However, the guitars get a bit lost during more aggressive drum sequences, and composition wise, some of the great riffs are missing due to extended verses where the band tries to get away from the old “verse-bridge-chorus-solo” songwriting. This one will get them a hard time with the few that like to understand their music at first listen.
