This lasted until a year later, when singer Erik Borgen and guitarist Kenneth Bergsagel were added to the line-up. The band changed their name to Carnal Tomb and begun working on their own material. In the meantime Erik Borgen decided to quit the band and the vocal duties were passed on to Helgesen, who was soon backed by female vocalist Lin Achre Tveit Keltziva.
Adding keyboardist Elin Overskott completed the final line-up of the group which ultimately resurfaced in bearing the name Dismal Euphony. Surprisingly, the EP was not released until the year From the very first note it was clear that with this album the group reached the peaks of creativity. The brilliantly composed material offered a great variety of inspirations, all sustained in the enchanting gothic mood.
Python Zero featured a great amount of psychedelic and electronica motives added to the music. Unfortunately, Dismal Euphony disbanded after releasing their masterpiece. Dismal Euphony would not peak until their 4th and final album, the brilliant and unorthodox Python Zero of , but they produced two respectable melodic black metal albums in Soria Moria Slott and Autumn Leaves.
Their third full-length, 's All Little Devils , is often lamented as some sort of gothic metal sellout, but this is pretty far from the truth, it's an album that takes the bands roots and adopts them to a more raucous, opera house environment. My own mediocre reaction to the album has dissipated over the years, and now I consider it their second best release. Most of the tracks are a pleasure to listen to, even if they aren't individually that memorable.
Most of the tracks are a pleasure to listen to, even if they aren't individually that memorable. Oh, I get it. All Little Devils has a lavish mix in which the vocals can shine without dominating the immense guitars. The symphonic bits synthesizers are done rather nicely, but not all of the songs are consistently good. Look up to the sky Do you see the flaming eyes, watching you?
