Roel de Haan : Charun is a post-rock/metal outfit from Sardinia, Italy and this ‘Mundus Cereris’ is their latest album. Charun plays, like many in their genre, instrumental music and then it is paramount that the songs can compensate the lack vocals. Charun are quite proficient in this respect. Slightly heavier and more massive than usual and songs like ‘Malacoda’ and ‘Mae’ are even hinting at doom metal at times. Of course the more massive elements are effectively contrasted by more airy and melancholy parts. In fact the clever use of contrasts between lighter and darker sounds are what makes ‘Mundus Cereris’ such an interesting album. Fresh yet familiar and comfortable. ‘Mundus Cereris’ is an album that post-rock and metal fans should check out.
