Conjure One - Exilarch

This one starts off with an arguably unremarkable, 1 minute long intro. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not bad. An intro is valuable to emphasize the part when the melody gets going. I just think that this intro doesn’t really do justice to the song.

The melody is groovy yet dreamy, showcasing the strong, evocative voice of the one called Jaren. She’s accompanied by an army of synths and sparse piano arrangements. Rhys Fulber (of Delerium^ fame) doesn’t waste a beat here (which I measure by thinking if I would like the song if I would listen to the instrumental-only version). Even after a couple of listens I can still find new intricate sound textures. The lyrics are quite good too and that’s always a bonus.

“When the sun was strong
And shadows grew so long
She stole her way
Into your empty heart

And she moved like ice
She was cool and blue like ice
No flaws on her, no imperfections
She changed your direction
What could you do”
