With his sixth UNREQVITED album, "Beautiful Ghosts" driving force and sole member 鬼 has set out to fearlessly explore this for headbangers rather "scary" emotion. According to the multi-instrumentalist there are strong themes of love, passion, and devotion on this record.
As a result of journeying into his mind and collecting a wide range of emotions, 鬼 has included many lighter and more uplifting passages than previously on "Beautiful Ghosts", although dark twists are balancing the score. New elements include a significant use of clean vocals throughout the album and there are even playfully progressive rhythms as in the opening track 'All Is Lost'. The core elements that have shaped UNREQVITED in the past remain active as well. The massive anthemic refrains from "Mosaic I: L'amour Et L'ardeur" (2018) are equally present as the simple melancholic melodies from the 2016 debut album "Disquiet" and the orchestral grandeur of "Empathica" (2020).
Mosaic I might be Unreqvitedʼs most ambitious effort to date. Though only 40 minutes in length, their third LP explores far more hopeful territory, deeply rooted in post-rock and orchestral influences. Apart from the harrowing, tormented shrieking vocals, little to no black metal influences remain from their previous releases. It instead features majestic and hopeful refrains, wonderfully evocative progressions, and angelic, delicate atmospheres. The by-product is a captivating new sound that may be completely unique to the genre.
