ev­er­grey Nos­fer­atu (Soli­tuDe, Dom­i­nanCe, trageDy, 1999)

Metal Hammer (UK) - - Horror Songs -

With its wan­der­ing melodies and creepy ivory tin­kling, the emo­tional Swedes’ homage to the iconic silent film of the same name is soaked in at­mos­phere and gothic gran­deur, a dose of tom englund’s re­flec­tive per­sonal lyri­cism heartily thrown into the mix. If some of the movies in this list are too ex­treme for your tastes, then the 1922 Ger­man mas­ter­piece – an un­of­fi­cial adap­ta­tion of Bram Stoker’s genre-defin­ing Drac­ula novel – should pro­vide you with a de­cid­edly dif­fer­ent chill, with its un­set­tling por­trayal of count or­lok as he makes his way from his tran­syl­va­nian crypt to an un­pre­pared Ger­man town.

CHOICE LYRIC: “Where ever you’ll go I’ll be / Where ever you’ll be I’ll find you / I am de­s­pair / I am the cries of the aban­doned child / The pain of the bat­tered beast / The screams of the soul you keep / I am Nos­fer­atu”
